    Listening to music locally at PC?

    Any plans for "slimp3slave" in the pipeline to be ported to Win? I feel
    this is real useful tool as who doesn't want to listen to the output in
    other rooms?

    The Winamp method is a kludge in my eyes, it works, but is a kludge.

    winamp...openURL... http:\\localhost:9000/stream.mp3
    Then just choose the same playlist

    If you have linux, you can use slimp3slave which will allow you to
    synchronize with your slimp3.

    ideal solution...more squeezeboxes
    I have used slimp3slave, but even that's a kludge. slimserver's real power
    comes out when connected to proper hardware. I like having the same music in
    several rooms, and I like being able to control it from anywhere with the same
    remote.

    I tried hacking triplefat so that it had slimp3slave's functionality.
    I ran into some problems and never got back to it.

    With that working, and an IrDA adapter on your computer, you could
    probably make it do exactly what you like.
