File Type And Player Support
StreamPoint supports MP3, AAC and WMA file types played in Windows Media Player, iTunes, and Musicmatch Jukebox media players. One of the benefits of the StreamPoint software is that there is no need to worry about whether DRM protected files will play on the Wireless DJ system - now or in the future. The Wireless DJ does not decode any DRM protected content internally and neither does the included StreamPoint software. When it comes across a song that is protected with DRM, StreamPoint automatically plays it through the application that contains the proper DRM decoder, and the audio file's usage license. The output is then streamed to your stereo.
Unlike some devices, StreamPoint does not pipe all audio from the PC directly through to your stereo. In fact, you can usually play music on your PC using Windows Media Player while someone else is listening to music in another room through StreamPoint. However, if StreamPoint needs to use iTunes to stream a DRM protected file, the person at the PC must wait until StreamPoint switches back to Windows Media Player before they can play music with the iTunes player. (This limitation with iTunes does not apply to Windows Media Player, though - I was able to stream one song with StreamPoint and play another song on through WMP on my PC without any trouble.)
