View Full Version : saving all the shoutcast directory pls files for use in os x
6th September 2007, 00:18
I was a windows user for some time using winamp, but now I use os x (intel mac) and miss the shoutcast radio stations directory it automatically loads inside winamp with the top 500 stations that are searchable and all. Is there a way to save all of the .pls files or do I need to click tune in and download each .pls file for each station and load them into a playlist inside itunes? or maybe a mod for itunes that does the same thing like in winamp.

dude. Use the web and videolan for the mac. Do not save the .pls files as IP addresses can change.
Just my $0.02

There isn't any way to get a cached version of wherever winamp saves them in xp? I've searched around through the directories but I can't seem to find something that resembles it. I really wanna have all of shoutcast in itunes.
I wouldn't mind redoing the list if the ips change, I've been using the same links in itunes for a while now for the DI radio stations.

then the only way you are going to get that is to save the individual playlists and add them to itnues.
please note that iTunes will not play any aac+ stream as iTunes does not support the audio format.

Some days ago, I wrote a program for to merge and export selected streams into a pls file.
It is called ShoutScan and can be download on heinelt.info (http://heinelt.info).
It is a Windows application and pretty easy to use. For sure, it is free of charge!
