View Full Version : Shoutcast and Windows Media Player
6th May 2005, 11:37
I set up the .asx file so that my shoutcast server could play fine on Windows Media Player, but it still doesn't work for me. I've had a couple people test it and it varies for them too.
Can somebody test it and tell me what is wrong with it please? the listen link is at www.spinfm.com/listen
thanks for any help
they say that it works from windows mediaplayer v 7 and up but i noticed that it works best with either version 9 or 10
The windows media player installed on the listeners side is what matters, if they have an old version it's very possible they aren't able to listen this way.( often the player starts but shows nothing)
Hi Pioneer - I can confirm that your current setup isn't working. The issue is with the version of Windows Media player you're calling (I have both 9 and 7 installed and your page wants my PC to load v7)
Version 9/10 is needed to listen to a Shoutcast stream, I think. If you need code, PM me here or on LoudCity.

Wonder if somebody can point me in the right direction.
I want to set up a webcam broadcast over our LAN. So far
Ive got everything working perfectly. The only hiccup is
that everyone uses windows media player.
Ive managed to get media player to stream audio from my shoutcast broadcast. Is there a way of getting webcam broadcast/movie to play in windows media player?
any help much appreciated.

im pretty sure this is not possible...but im sure someone will put me right if im wrong..
you would need a windows media server to stream media video

SHOUTcast won't stream video. nick@ss is right... Windows Media Server will. If you have a small number of viewers, they can also connect to the free Windows Media Encoder. As far as Nullsoft solutions... I don't know much about NSV but your question should be asked there:

Thanx guys! Will check out the windows media server & encoder. Also found some code in the java forums. Might jus compile my own. Will see what worx out best and isnt going to cost an arm and a leg in terms of time and money.
