I did try it, that's why I'm asking :)

I couldn't get the audio to skip, but it does sound degraded. I'm no
audiophile, so I thought that I'd ask here...

On the same note, how can I get the window of a currently-open
instance of Amarok to display over SSH? I only know how to open a new
instance. Can I do it with the PID or something?
