Thanks, Simon. I think this will be helpful. Sorry for spreading misinformation; I recall (perhaps wrongly) that MinimStreamer came out about the same time as the internet radio feature was enabled and I thought they were connected.

There is some connection. MinimServer provides the capability for the user to create radio playlists and send radio stream URLs to the renderer for playing. In this mode, the renderer plays the stream directly from the network URL. This works fine for some renderers (like my Linn DS) but it doesn't work with a number of other renderers. This capability was introduced in MinimServer 0.70.

MinimStreamer was available with MinimServer 0.8.1 and adds the capability to act as a "proxy" for the radio URL. In this mode, the renderer plays the stream via MinimStreamer instead of directly from the network URL. This brings into play MinimStreamer's transcoding capability and also enables MinimStreamer to do some other tweaking of the stream to enable compatibility with most renderers.

Explaining all this would be far too complicated for the headline installer paragraph. Smile

Yes, perhaps. I keep looking for the perfect CP (not that there is one, I suppose) but people do say good things about Bubble.
