obviously if stations want to use another service which still supports it then so be it, but as i'm only seeing 8 on there out of the 80-90 which had been known about at the time the support was dropped from SHOUTcast, that doesn't show there's much interest for something which happened over 3 months ago.
and on an unrelated note, i'm surprised that the Ogg Vorbis stream count is so low despite the number of stations i'm aware off who've always refused to use SHOUTcast since it doesn't have Ogg Vorbis support (which based on those numbers alone, makes it less of an incentive to try to support formats other than MP3 and AAC).
Actualy..., well, DrO... i was looking arround the web, and maybie it would be a good idea restart the Shoutcast TV directory because i notice than exist a very active proyect to make video streams through NSV on the internet
(i'll post the link another day)
So, maybie, like it is an open source proyect a directory can be created just like one add-on to that program, that way without having the need of bring lots of support to the format we can recover Shoutcast Tv
As a side note an icecast addon to place it NSV icecast stations on a ShoutcastTV directory also be usefull with this.
