ok, so i am running a station like evenings only.

http://www.diorsplace.com:8000/listen.pls


is there any way, i have it set up, so if I am not running my server (which will be most of the time), i can have it redirect to 4chan.org radio?

that runs at http://www.no-sry.net:10000/listen.pls

can i manually make a pls file on my server, with contents
http://www.no-sry.net:10000/listen.pls


?

i guess i can try now, but what gets me the the port 8000, how can i get this to redirect to a pls file i have on my computer?

simplest answer as you already pointed out is to create a .pls file with your server's IP as the first entry and the secondary / backup server as the second entry

ok, cool thanks ill try that! teh only thing that was getting me, was the port 8000 thing. like if i were to put a listen.pls file in my home directory like this

www.diorsplace.com/listen.pls (this file contains secondary server)

and the user types
www.diorsplace.com:8000/listen.pls

will ilt still evoke the listen.pls file I put, or the automatic one the server detects (lets say the server is off disabled)

ok, well i guess i can start to play with this and experiment for myself


I appreciate the reply

above wouldnt work in VLC player, which is getting real popular and also can listen with AAC+ format.
This seems to work with all Vlc winamp etc
