Stream your MP3s with Netvibes-SlimServer mashup

Reader Charles was looking for a way to stream his music library via Netvibes, his preferred RSS reader. When he couldn't find one, he mashed up a solution using SlimServer. Now he can stream his MP3s from any web-connected PC!

To do likewise, you'll need a free Netvibes account, the free SlimServer software and about 15 minutes to follow Charles' configuration instructions. They're very clear, though I had trouble getting SlimServer to work properly on my machine (probably owing to a router problem). If you have better luck, tell us about it in the comments. This looks like a very cool method for accessing your music library from any remote computer. Of course, you could always try Avvenu.

Compared to this, avvenu is a breeze to setup and use, but will only play your ripped music using iTunes player. Best of all you can share and its free.
