Frankly, the only reason that I'm even considering relaying WMA9 is
because a large number of listeners to the streams may not be all
that technically savvy and WMP comes with XP - I'd like to prevent
having to ask the users to download another player if preferable. I
don't have very much experience with WMP 9 or WMP 10 etc. Forgive me
if this is a silly question, but can they stream from mp3 audio
streams? If so then I wouldn't have to worry about steaming WMA
format at all.
