problems. However I would like to stream local audio files from my PC
to my Zire - I just am not sure of the correct URL to input for my
home PC. This assumes it can be done which I would imagine it could.
Do I need to setup some sort of server on my PC or can I just input
the location from my PC and start streaming?
Any insight into how to do this would be appreciated,

Sorry misunderstood what you were looking for. I've never streamed
local files directly so I am not sure how you would do it. If anyone
else has, please let us know.
That being said I have been able to play my local files via the
Gloonet service that is currently in Beta. The announce on this group
is here http://groups.yahoo.com/group/pockettunes/message/4266. Of
course it is in Beta and is really intended for when you are away from
your computer with your music files but you could try it.
