!NEW! SHOUTcast DSP plugin 1.9.2 [beta]

[edit]
see http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?t=324251 for the more current version of the plug-in which evolved out of the work on this v1.9.2 beta

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SHOUTcast DSP plugin version 1.9.2 beta build 001

YOU NEED THE LATEST VERSION OF WINAMP TO USE THIS PLUGIN !
http://www.winamp.com
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What's New:

Now works with
xp/vista/windows 7

Default encoder always aacplus:
This was very difficult,on first glance it was easy to assume this was all
windows UAC related (XPsp3 & above).
This was only part of the problem,there were serious
problems with the gui code itself.

Settings and configuration:
Settings now save correctly and are there on restart.(windows UAC)
dsp_sc.ini now can be found in the users $APPDATA/SHOUTcast folder.

Title updates:
Url updates removed (did not work anyway) and
was causing title updates to fail under certain circumstances.
The "auto" check box has been replaced with "winamp" it still functions
the same way.Tick "winamp" for song titles to be sent from winamp.
Untick to manually send titles (for live dj's).

Crash on connection time out:
Now in theory at least, if your connection to the dnas times out
the dsp will disconnect instead of crashing.
I had no access to a dnas to test lag so fix is based on theory.

Added new lame encoder:
Updated to latest lame.

Removed standard aac:
For now standard aac is removed,it was
causing some issues.Aacplus is still included.

New GUI Items:
you may notice a slightly different gui layout,
with some new disabled boxes.
Don't worry these are here and disabled for a possible future version.
Also had to remove the "Time connected" feature,it had stopped working,
and I ran out of time to find out why this is the case.

KNOWN ISSUES
Winamp song titles may not be sent if you only have one
playlist item.I have applied a fix but obviously not in this version it seems.

HOW TO CRASH:
If you try to close winamp or the dsp while connected
you will crash the dsp and winamp.Always disconnect before closing!

# WINAMP PREFS CONFIG BUTTON AND EMPTY GUI
Config button in winamp prefs does not reload the gui correctly
under certain circumstances. TODO OOPS ;)

# MIXER
Mixer button does not work on vista and win7
Its a simple fix but no need....
Fix: click the speaker icon on your windows vista task bar ;)

#SHOUTCAST 2
This version does not support the shoutcast 2 protocol.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Instructions:
1. Download the attached zip file
2. Extract zipped shoutcast-dsp-1-9-2-windows.exe
3. Run the installer
