Play windows mp3 from linux using smb


Hi is there a way for juk or amarok or what ever to make a mp3 play list from my xp box and be able to play them in linux without copying the mp3ś over to linux using SMB? My xp is on a different pc then my suse 9.2 running kde 3.3.1 I have smb set up and its working fine I think. I can access my windows shares from linux to xp and via. I can access my windows printer from linux, This was a job to get working for some reason. And I dont even no what I did to get it working lol. Im new to linux but I love it.

here's an example for you, i have a similar setup, and my fstab contains the line:
Code:
//patsy/psc    /home/psc/smb    smbfs    uid=1000,gid=100,credentials=/root/patsy  0  0
where:
uid 1000 = user 'psc'
gid 100 = group 'users'

now the file /root/patsy contains:
Code:
username = psc
password = mypass
and has permissions 400 for root:root

i suppose you wouldn't, because you use smbclient... putting an entry in would give you a permanent mount, and in add the samba share to your FS, letting you seamlessly access those resources... i just copied/pasted that post from many other posts i put that in...

... if you want something temporary, you can use the mount command if you just specify smbfs as the FS type...
