    Rename the server.

    Hey, I got the software primarily to test out the streaming server before I purched the player, but I had a question:

    Is there a way to rename the server as it is displayed in the display of winamp? I know that with shoutcast you can name your "station" but is that an option here?

    I've checked the help but I didn't see anything, I may have missed it though.

    I don't know why I always do this but after my last post I did some more digging into the text files that came with the software, and after backing up the strings.txt file I changed it so the english "welcome to Slimcast" had the custom station name I wanted. and after stopping the server, and restarting the program it had the name I wanted. Now I'll have to see when I get my player if the player will work.

    So I was going to remove the post but instead decided to leave it so if someone else wanted to know how to do this they could.

    And if you want to change texts on the fly (without restarting the
    server), download and install my StringEditor plugin.

    At least, you _hope_ we can't. ;-)

    Some people think the title of this song is irrelevant,
    but it's not irrelevant - it's a hippopotamus.
