Great software! why aren't there more people doing web based or network based mp3 stuff???

My problem is (among many) I can get the server up and running (on a w2k box with IIS - but port set to 8080) - I can log into it and see all the directories of mp3s (which are stored on a server - and the BrowseAmp is on a seperate box). But when I click on play, stop and all the control things nothing seems to happen - and even if I manuall press play on winamp on the BrowseAmp PC - I still can't hear anything on the pc that's logged onto it's webpage.

Any clues?

BrowseAmp does not broadcast the music, it just controls it. If this is what you are looking for, look at ShoutCast or some other WinAmp streaming plugin.

When I want to stream, I just run Windows Media Encoder on my "music" PC. WME does add about 13 seconds of delay, though.

Anyone know of any software that doesn't have such a noticeable delay? I'm using the Shoutcast thingy that plugs into Winamp but get a 20-odd second delay  :(

You can reduce the buffer size in the ShoutCast options screen to get less delay.
But expect connection interrupts then...  :(

There are some Winamp plug-ins that allow you to syncronize two Winamps on a network. Bit of a kludge really, I never had much luck with them.
