    Has anyone tried doing this? Is it possible? It seems like it should be a very simple process, but whenever I try to do it, Kinoma opens up and gives me the same blasted Unsupported media format message that I am becoming all too familiar with on this phone. It seems like I should be able to force ptunes deluxe to stream these mp3's, but I can't find any documentation that will tell me how to do this. I can use Avvenu to download mp3's to my sd card and play them in ptunes, but streaming would be a pretty cool trick. Any suggestions?

    I personally don't know how to do it, but I have heard that you can set up your computer as a shoutcast server and stream it through ptunes.

    You can try Orb. Do a search on orb and streaming. Its worked pretty well for me.

    orb MASSIVLY slows down my computer to the point of not being able to run other programs. I had to uninstall. bummed.

    I've been trying to use Slimserver (freeware available at slimdevices.com) but having limited luck so far. I can find all of the music on my PC by logging in using the handheld interface. I can cue up a playlist from any of the 600+ albums stored there in FLAC. The PC will transcode to mp3, and I limit the bitrate to 128kbps or even 64kbps. I can connect to the stream using Ptunes. Unfortunately I get constant buffering interuptions. I know I can stream @ 128 kbps from other sources (radioio etc) with no problem, so I'm not sure what the problem is.

    How much disk space do you need for that?

    Well, I've got 280GB (about 600 cds) filled so far, but I'm only 1/2 way through ripping my collection. Since this is taking me forever, I decided I just want to rip one time. With FLAC, as a lossless format, I should never need to do it again. I've run out of space though, and need to buy a 500GB external drive. They are pretty cheap these days.
