Hi All,

I have set up my zaurus to listen to audio streamed from my desktop pc via winamp and shoutcast using the excellent instructions provided by speculatrix at http://www.speculatrix.f2s.com/normsoft/wi...-streaming.html

This works fine for some things- I can listen to mp3s streamed from winamp on the zaurus over wifi, but I want to listen to a digital radio station (the bbc actually), and I thought I could do this by getting the winamp shoutcast plugin to take input from the soundcard on my pc, or by using the real audio plugin for winamp and connecting to the audio stream directly. Whichever method I use, the sound quality on the pc is fine but on the zaurus it's rubbish and it's really quiet.

I have no idea where the problem lies- is it just not practical to do what I want to do, or is there a setting I have got wrong in the shoutcast server (so should ask this question in a different forum) or if it's an issue with kino2/mplayer.

Would I have better luck with a different shoutcast player on the zaurus?
