View Full Version : embed new player
27th August 2009, 06:49
Now that shoutcast has a web player, is there an easy way to embed my station on my site, preferably without related stations causing confusion. My current idea is to just put an iframe with my station tuned in. However there's a lot of scrolling room and this could cause much confusion. All I want is the rectangle with stop / play button and volume control.

<param name='src' value="http://yp.shoutcast.com/sbin/tunein-station.pls?id=437">
<param name='autostart' value="true">
<param name='controls' value='ControlPanel'>
<param name='console' value='video'>
<EMBED src="http://yp.shoutcast.com/sbin/tunein-station.pls?id=437" width="160" height='30' controls='ControlPanel' type='audio/x-pn-realaudio-plugin' console='video' autostart="true">
As far as I know, it's the only embedded player that accepts pls playlists and shoutcast streams without monkeying around.
Yeah. I know it smells.

thanks hippie, but I want listeners to only need flash installed, I know for a fact people lose interest when they are required to install any special components. At this point the iframe solution is probably better.

I dont think there is anyway to embedd the player as your own.
you need to look for alternative plash players / servers to offer flash

Have a look at this (http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?postid=2152415#post2152415) slightly old post for some suggested alternatives.
