I don't think that your device will be added to the vector of controllable devices in the Slimserver_Streamer object, so it will be actually registered with SlimServer (this is why you can see it on the web control) but lmce keeps its own vector of devices.

I think that this is actually setup by the SlimServer_plugin, rather than the Streamer device.

have a look at
http://svn.charonmedia.org/trac.cgi/browser/trunk/src/SlimServer_PlugIn/SlimServer_PlugIn.cpp
in the register code, it adds two possible device templates - the squeezebox and sound bridge.
This is what I suspected the problem was when I was messing around with it, but it could be more than just adding it in here as a fix.

I have also real HW player, and it can be controlled from Slimserver and LMCE. Softsqueeze is seen on slimserver normally, but is dumb to any commands from LMCE..

If we get into squeezebox mechanism for adding such device to system, then I guess the way will be open also for other 3rd party media players...
