Re: New radio station

Yeah I'm not sure either. Having to go to the site every time, totally defeats the purpose of bookmarking in winamp.

Hi Ron

I'm not sure exactly how it works, but in theory,when you broadcast, and you have a specific checkbox checked in the plugin, your show will be listed in the Shoutcast yellowpages and any other public directories. So people can do a search for the station from there as well. I don't know how they count connections, but it's an interesting question to ponder.

Hi Chris,

You know I was wondering about that whole business. I like to bookmark all my stations in Winamp and use it directly. But now that I am aware of this licensing issue, I will forebear and do it so as to be counted. I wonder why they just don't monitor the connections to the site from where ever. By this I mean that if you use the Winamp library for example, you can see the number of connections listed minute by minute as you refresh the listings.
I wonder why Shoutcast couldn't do something like that to monitor the
traffic. That way they would never miss anybody no matter how they logged
on: Winamp, Real Player, Windows Media Player, VLC Player ETC.

Hi.   Really now, is it that hard to bookmark the website and click a
link?  I understand bookmarks, and I understand how they make life
easier, I get that.
All I'm asking people to do is to add the page on the SW cast.net
website for the station into their favorites in Internet explorer or
firefox, , and simply click the listen link for Winamp.  If you add
that stream as a bookmark in Winamp, it'll change occasionally. so to
get it again you'd have to keep coming back anyways.
I know it's not the ideal solution. In a perfect world you would be
able to get a direct link into Winamp, add it as a bookmark and be
done with it.  But because of the way their system works, it doesn't
work like that.
It really isn't that hard to do, simply go to your browser, go to the
website, click the appropriate link and you're listening. It's only
one extra step and I don't think that's too hard for anyone on this
list, or in general to do.
