Icecast listings

Asked by eightinches on 2008-04-03

I wanted to suggest that you list the Icecast listings rather than Shoutcast. The bigger stations are listed in both anyways.

To me, it makes more sense to support open source software rather than AOL/Winamp/Shoutcast. Shoutcast is also the most unstable software for streaming and there is no reason we should encourage them. You can run an Icecast server on linux with multiple mountpoints for 6 months without having to reboot it. You can't even come close to that with Shoutcast.

Anyways, enough blabing... my opinion is said.

An icecast plugin would actually be pretty simple to make. I'll look into it.

It looks like the icecast directory is down. How long has it been that way?

eightinches (alex-techno) said : #3

I don;t know. I was unaware that it was down. Maybe post a message in their forum to see if they are aware of it.

Thanks gain for considering my suggestion.

Keep up the great work with Exaile. It's a great project!

Cheers
