    Remote Streaming via Winamp

    I just installed the 5/18/04 nightly on Win2k and I can no
    longer transcode downwards via the url. I've also noticed I can
    no longer set the maximum bitrate for the individual player.

    Regardless of what bitrate I provide Winamp is always saying
    it's 320. Are others having this problem?

    Thanks

    Fast forward and reverse.

    The Squeezebox manual says that one can fast forward (or reverse)
    through a track by pressing and holding the Forward button. This
    isn't entirely true, and I thought it was worth giving more precise
    information. I've collected this from various posts on the list, but
    if I've got it wrong feel free to correct me.


    1. This only works on files that aren't transcoded as they are
    playing. So it will work for MP3, and not (at present) for FLAC, etc.
    For WAV and AIFF see point 2.

    2. By default WAV and AIFF files are transmitted directly to a wired
    Squeezebox but are transcoded to 320kbps MP3 on a wireless
    connection. You can ensure direct playback (if your network bandwidth
    can take it) by going to SlimServer, Additional Server Settings, File
    Types, and unchecking the AIFF (or WAV) to MP3 lines.

    3. Pressing and holding Forward fast forwards at 2x original speed.
    Each time you press and hold the scanning speed doubles. You can go
    up to at least 128x, which can be useful if you want to find aplace
    midway in a two-hour radio program you have recorded.

    The next release, the proper way to do this will be to enter player settings,
    and change Bitrate Limiting to "no limit" and hope that your wireless setup will
    play nicely.

    This bit has actually changed in the latest version to being
    controlled by the bitrate setting on each player. The
    defaults are still as you say however.
