    I am trying to use my Prismiq Media Player with mt-daapd. I found the following that is claimed to work with the SlimServer.

    Can something similar be done with mt-daapd i.e. can it create a internet radio stream? If so what is the configuration to do this or is there a link availabe to review?

    Thanks,

    “You can experiment with combining the PRISMIQ MP and the SlimServer from Slim Devices (It’s the server software which runs the SliMP3 and SqueezeBox.). After you install and configure it you should be able to browser your audio file collection hierarchically by Artist, Album, Genre, or File name. You can also enter a search string for Artist, Album, and Track title. I can play OGG files; I can view album art, etc…All while sat in front of your TV, rooms away from my PC. And the audio interface looks great.

    – You can download and install the SlimServer software, which is available free of charge from here –> http://www.slimdevices.com/su_downloads.html

    – During the install process SlimServer will ask for the location of you music files.

    – Once installed you have to go to the PRISMIQ Media Manager and create a new Internet Radio station http://192.168.0.100:9000/stream.mp3 and a new web bookmark http://192.168.0.100:9000 . 192.168.0.99 being the ip address of the SlimServer.

    – You can use the web browser on your PC to open http://192.168.0.99:9000 and change the skin (yes it’s fully skin-able too) to use the “Handheld” skin. You could have done this from the PRISMIQ web browser.

    – Next go to your TV with PRISMIQ MP running.

    – First, launch the Internet radio station you created then open the bookmark you created.

    – From there it is pretty straight forward. You can browse the music that you want to play, click on the play button after a second or two the music start playing.” SlimServer and PRISMIQ Player:

    The only downside was that the Prismiq’s browser was slow. The Linkplayer is a much better product and replaced my Prismiq, but I do miss the ability to play Flac files.”

    Hard to say because the website looks more like marketing fluff than actual product information, but it doesn’t appear to support DAAP.

    My guess would be no, this won’t work with mt-daapd.
