Launch Shoutcast player from desktop shortcut (URL)

I would like to be able to launch the Shoutcast Flash player directly from a desktop shortcut (Windows 7 or XP). If I use what is in the player's title bar (http://www.shoutcast.com/shoutcast_p...&play_status=1) , I get a full browser. I want to be able o launch the SC player directly. Are there additional switches to the above URL? Or is there a way to convert the "Embed Code" into a URL string that can be launched from a Windows desktop shortcut? I've tried various permutations and combinations of the embed code (below) with no success.

<embed src='http://www.shoutcast.com/media/popupPlayer_V19.swf?stationid=http://yp.shoutcast.com/sbin/tunein-station.pls?id=718929&play_status=1' quality='high' bgcolor='#ffffff' width='398' height='104' name='popupPlayer_V19' align='middle' allowScriptAccess='always' allowFullScreen='true' type='application/x-shockwave-flash' pluginspage='http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer' ></embed>

Thanks.

J

PS Also, the "Email This" link in the bottom left corner of the player does not seem to work (in Win 7/XP, firefox/chrome/IE).
