    Figured it out myself. The problem was in the encryption code. I think the Airport Express generates the HEX code from ASCII differently than my router does. The solution was to use a HEX code generator (I used this one: http://www.andrewscompanies.com/tools/wep.asp) and then enter the HEX code directly.

    Now it works and I am currently listening to music wirelessly and blissfully!!

    • I found a better way to transmit to Airport Express. New version of "Airfoil" available at http://www.rogueamoeba.com/airfoil/windows/ works very well. Simple, reliable, better sound quality. It will send to multiple Airport Express units. Can be used with several applications, too. It costs $25 but it's worth it.

        While Airfoil is a good product—had it existed for Windows 6 months ago, I would have never developed an output plug-in to do the same—it still needs to be run separately from Winamp. Personally, I want to double-click a playlist and have it start playing in Winamp to my AirPort Express right away. I do not want to have to remember to do anything else (like run an external program).

        The Remote Speakers Output Plug-In is: 1) free, 2) open-source and 3) runs completely within Winamp. So, I will continue to favor it over Airfoil.

        • The problem I found with thae Remote Speakers Plugin is that I couldn't find a way to use it as well as the crossfading output plugin at the same time.

          BTW, Airfoil for Windows does not yet support multiple Airport Express units as I had originally thought. Hopefully that will come with time...

            Hello. Just wanted to let everyone know about my new driver for the Lyra Wireless system. It supports winamp and a number of other media players. A free demo is available at http://www.hendersonsoftware.com/pro...lye/index.aspx

            • Several earlier posts mentioned winamp crashes with the Multiple Output plug-in. It appears some folks are not having this problem. I continue to have it. After testing several configurations, I believe the MO plugin is the problem, not the Remote Output plugin. I would appreciate any suggestions (I've email the author of MO plugin but no response).

                Hi,
                I have been busy for a while, so i couldnt reply...
                In any case you will have to provide me more information about
                - what versions you have, MO plugin, Winamp, Windows OS, etc.
                - what other output plugins you have
                - what configurations you tried
                - and when the crash occurs.

                so i can locate your bug, unfortunately i dont have the airport express system so i cant work directly with this plugin.

                • TazDevil - I determined there was a more current Multiple Output plugin. Problem fixed.

                  • hello all

                    I'Ve just bought Airport Express today and am using it with Winamp and the Remote Spakers plugin. When I enable the multi output pluging, I notice severe lag in my music over my wireless network, sound is a few seconds off sadly.

                    Any ideas what might be wrong?

                      The AirPort Express has a buffer internally that is about 5-10 seconds deep. A future version of the Remote Speakers Output Plug-In will report the correct output latency to the player so that auido can be synchronized.

                      • Does this plugin also allow the use of other output plugins such as the SqrSoft crossfading plugin (my personal favorite)?

                          You'll have to provide more detail on how the cross-fading plug-in you describe fits into the picture. All I can tell you now is that the Remote Speakers Output Plug-In uses the same interface as other output plug-ins for interaction with the player and directs audio to the AirPort Express. And that the Multiple Output Plug-In also has the same player interface and directs audio to other plug-ins that implement the output plug-in interface.

                          Are there DSP cross-fading plug-ins available? Neither the Remote Speakers Output Plug-In or the Multiple Output Plug-In will override your choice of DSP plug-in.

                          • It is called "SqrSoft Advanced Crossfading v1.75". It shows up under Output (not DSP) Plugins in Winamp Preferences. The plugin itself has a setting where one can select a secondary DSP plugin. This is designed for shoutcasting. I'm wondering if the Remote Speakers Output Plugin would work here.

                            • I am guessing that the cross-fade plug-in you describe outputs directly to the local PC speakers or hard codes the use of DirectSound or waveOut output. If this is the case, then the Remote Speakers Output Plug-In is incompatible. If the plug-in allows the selection of an output plug-in (i.e. it is configured like a filter rather than an endpoint) then it should work with any output plug-in, including the Remote Speakers Output Plug-In.

                              • Yeah, I think it is an end point as you say. Oh well....

                                Thanks for your info.
