I don't think the mDNS issue is the reason why you are not able to play
anything; I have the same mDNS whining in my slimserver.log, but I can
play audio just fine.

The "ERROR: Couldn't open song" on the other hand, could be because you
are trying to play file types that Slimserver can't do out of the box.
