Some folks over at rockbox.org have been trying to get it to run real-time, but I havent heard of any progress for quite a while.

So I think the slug really lacks CPU horsepower to decode WMA, for now.

The thread I can find at Rockbox.org with the ongoing discussion of progress on integer WMA decoding is this one (user “Marsdaddy” is the main developer of the library): http://forums.rockbox.org/index.php?topic=3005.0

The latest I can find from that thread is (1) the integer WMA decoding is working, and (2) there is a WMA-to-WAV test harness exercising it. Seems there are still (as of the latest update from the author – a month ago or so) issues with the decoding accuracy and the performance of the code, but it is reported as more-or-less working.
