WinSlim (BETA)

WinSlim is a simple remote control application for SlimDevices’ Squeezebox players (or more specifically, any player connected to SlimServer). It allows quick access to basic transport controls without loading the web interface. This application has come about as a side effect of me writing the SlimCliLib library, but I thought it may be useful as is, so here it is.

Status: Still under active development – expect bugs but also expect new releases.
Current Version: 1.0.2204.846
Current License: Closed source freeware (source will be opened soon)

Features:

  • Control any/all players attached to your slimserver from one control panel
  • Play, Pause, Stop, Next, Prev, Volume, Power Controls
  • Small Size, simple operation
  • Trigger library rescans easily
  • Realtime library statistics update – see exactly when the rescan is complete!
  • Reacts to Media Control buttons on your keyboard (Note: may not work if software such as Logitech iTouch or SetPoint is running)
  • Displays current track Title, Artist & Album
