View Full Version : want to block some sites from my stream
26th June 2005, 23:09
some site put stream link their site with embeded windows media player code.
I think browser send referrer information when my stream opened by this site page.
Do have any way to block referrer sites from shoutcast server stream.
no, why do you want to block it? Embrace it and promo the hell out of your stream and get some traffic.

I'd agree with that, as long as their not claiming they own the stream where's the problem??

Just make sure the stream has your site and station name in frequently so that any listens from the embedded player know that it is your station.
You could always setup a webserver on the current port of your streaming server and put your listen.pls on it redirecting to the real server on the new port. You could then redirect the embedded player to a different stream or block the referer

If they are using an embedded Windows Media Player (likely they are) you can use something like this in an asx file:
<PARAM name="HTMLView" value="http://www.yourwebsite.com/playerpage.html"/>
<ref href="http://someaddress:someport" />

This will take over the embedded media player window and pop anything you want in there then redirect them to your stream. You could essentially just place your website URL into the PARAM variable and force it to popup anytime someone hits it from that site.

I have a similiar problem. I have asx file that redirect to mms files. I have several sites embedding these asx files. When embedded media player is actually calling to the asx file, not IE so checking the referrer is not an option.
If I try the Param solution you suggested is works if somebody goes to www.mysite.com/media.asx (my website will open within windows media player), however, it does nothing for th embedded player. Also, my own streams are embedded.
Short of DRM does anyone have any suggestions?

SHOUTcast doesn't support MMS. If you are using Windows Media Server or the such, you might want to try Microsoft Support.
