I'm following the troubleshooting tips at
http://www.mrtickle.org/alienbbc_faq.html and WinAmp throws an "error
syncing to mpeg" error. transcoder_proxy.pl outputs nothing to stdout.

AlienBBC 0.10, Slimserver 11/06, Mandrake 10.1 CE,
[jack@felix jack]$ rpm -qa | grep mplayer
mplayer-1.0-0.pre5.4mdk
[jack@felix jack]$ rpm -qa | grep codecs
win32-codecs-1.6-3plf
real-codecs-1.2-1plf

any ideas?

sorry, my mistake. For some reason the SSH session I was watching
transcoder_proxy.pl in didn't update for a minute or two, then it suddenly
dumped a bunch of mplayer error messages. Looks like codecs and mplayer
aren't matching up, so I'm switching to the PLF version of mplayer.

and winamp is sitting around at 87% buffer full, dead. Does anyone have
this working in Mandrake 10 using their or PLF's RPMS? Or did you compile
mplayer from source? If compiling from source, are the codecs there?
