I've been wondering this myself. The Windows version of Shoutcast interacts heavily with WinAmp, which as far as I know only available for windows. From what I've been able to figure out, the Linux version is the DNAS server only. Anyone else have any ideas on this?

I've come across the same frustrations with having the users choosing to "open the file from location" because I'm using a windows winamp streamer to a linux shoutcast server. if i was using windows DSP to serv than I could just have the users access the .pls playlist directly.
Try out Litestream. It is a linux based streamer and server. You can mix and match how you want to use it like streaming your winamp stream in windows to a linux litestream server... or... stream a litestream source to a windows or linux shoutcast server. YOu can make many different arrangments with this tool.

I've come to learn that you can run the Shoutcast DNAS on a Linux box, and WinAmp on a Windows box to control your playlist. There is an addon available from Audio Realm (www.audiorealm.com) which allows more flexible handling of playlists. This will require you to either use Samba to get at the files on the Linux box from WinAmp, or to move the files to the Windows box.
Not exactly what you're looking for I'm sure, but it's an idea. :)
