Sorry for the brevity earlier. The squeezecenter software is intended
for use in supporting the Squeezebox family of hardware music players
made by Logitech, hence the "congrats". You *don't* actually have to
create any account, and I'm not sure why they ask you to. You don't have
to buy a player either; I use the included Java Web Start "virtual
player". On the web interface, look under Extras -> SoftSqueeze and use
either the applet or the JWS. Or you could buy a player [later], or
You also need to put your music on the server in order to serve it (!).
I have mine in a hierarchy of directories for artists and albums, but I
guess you could just put your (properly tagged) mp3s on the machine
somewhere. Tell squeezecenter where it is and have it re-scan.
