View Full Version : How to create the playlist automatically
3rd June 2000, 05:14
Currently, I am doing a project which involve audio streaming on the web. So I choose shoutCast as my server. But, I am required to create a playlist which enable user to request a song and the song will be played automatically.
If there any script or software provide this feature??

Put the mp3s you want to stream into the /content folder in the directory you extracted SHOUTcast into. (either below /console or /gui depending on which one you're using)..
now make a web page with links of the following format: <a href="http://my.server:myport/content/song.pls">play this song</a>
No, you don't have a file named song.pls in that directory, but SHOUTcast will create the playlist if it finds a .mp3 file with the same name.
(this information is available here.. see question D1... http://www.shoutcast.com/support/docs/docs.phtml?filenumber=120&language=english&layout=normal&prevlayout=normal
P.S - this works fine for me, but what i'd like to do is be able to link to a PLAYLIST from a web page and have that stream on demand.. anyone know how to do this?
also I am working on a project called Demcast, which is PHP, and will do many of the things you requested. It is in developement right now but requestable songs is one of the next features
guess it would help to mention the page http://forums.winamp.com/ubb/smile.gif
