This is great news!

Will Shoutcast work again on older versions of Winamp?
I try'd out the latest versions, but i stopped upgrading on version 5.53 and will not upgrade anymore, because i personally don't like what is becoming of the player.

Waiting for response, Thanks.

Hi Guyz...
today i just felt i wanted to listen to my fav genre music on the so good shoutcats library. This was so easy, you could see what was on air, which kind of music it was, what was the bandwith, hide some columns ou diminuish the width of those wo weren's important. Wanted to listen to some good radio at a high bandwith ? I was just clicking on "listener max" and then choose a high bit rate. Getting bored of that music, wanna change for a better quality ? It was as easy as clicking on "bitrate" to get on top all the high band with radio, and then scroll down till the bottom. ok, it was kind of odd and old fashion skin but it was SO FREAKING EASY to surf on shoutcast on winamp, all the information were so easilay accessible.
And today, guess what... i got pissed off. It's such a pain to navigate, to go to a radio to another. Only 10 results per page, no bitrate ranking, no column to check quicly all the information in 5 sec... now it takes a 2 sec lap to go from page one to page 2.
Some are gonna answer, yeah but can still go on classic shoutcasthttp://classic.shoutcast.com ... but hell yeee, it ain't the same at all that the classic shoutcast on winamp library guyz, only have 100 results/pages (well better than 10 anyway...), no column that u can change, and u have to download the shoutcast playslist and go back to your winamp to press "play". easy nope ?
well maybe this needed some change for skinning and stuff like that, ok it looks more fancy nwo, but hell nope for navigation guyz, or just let people choose the way they like (the same way than u choose "modern" or "classic" winamp).
And i search for half an hour where i could leave a comment about that, and come to that forum to complain (well i'm not gonna complain about that, thanks for that nice forum where we can express our opinion ), but how many ppl get frustated and won't do that ?
Go have a look on winamp blog, most people are not happy with that...
http://blog.shoutcast.com/2008/09/10...log/2#comments

ok it's just what i've flet about the new shoutcast radio library, i didn't read all the posts until now, looks like there's a way to get back to the old fashion version. But it'd be better if u can let people choose in the future, or improve the navigation, as the way as it was before

Cheers, sanka2man from France
PS : I use winamp 5.5 for now

Guys I have some bad news. :-( Due to a late-breaking bug found over the weekend today's install to revert back to the old-style SHOUTcast listing on Winamp has been delayed until Thursday.

Thanks!!!

I hate the new look. It is totally awful! I will never search for another Shoutcast stream until the site changes.

Who thought that eliminating the information that was displayed on the old format would be pleasing to the users?

Before you can scroll ONE page to find a station now you have to click over and over and over and over, there is no option to VIEW ALL this is totally retarded .

THANK YOU ALL FOR MESSING UP MY WINAMP.
I'M UNINSTALLING NOW...SEE YA!
I Agree...
This is too hard to see and too many clicks to find something.

VOLIA! If you REFRESH your Winamp directory you will see a little link on the top-right that you can hit to return to the OLD classic listings!

(I hope something like this doesn't happen again).

Suggestion:
Instead of hitting 'Refresh' and clicking on a hyperlink to flip between the two styles, why not put the options in 'Options'>'Preferences'>'Media Library'>'Classic View'/'Modern View'.

Spotted a couple bugs with the classic listing in WINAMP:

* Search for station doesn't work. Tried searching for mine ("ocsd") and couldn't bring it up, also searched for more poular stations by station name including "977" and "Big R" and didn't retrieve any results. Search also doesn't work by genre for certain genre's, ("dance", "rap") but some do work, like ("jazz"). Search by artist works fine.

* Drop-list genres on the left side of the page next to "Config" doesn't work for all genres. Certain genre's do work. I am able to pull up "Pop" & "RnB" but cannot retrieve other genres including "Jazz" or "Rap", alot of the ones that cannot be retrived hang on the Loading prompt for a couple seconds and then time out.

i doubt it will be a permanent feature as once they are happy with the new shoutcast.com i would be surprised if the old one stays running forever.

I may be wrong.

In address to my last comment, these bugs are very sparse. I just typed in my station name again and was able to pull them up ("ocsd") but still can't pull up others including ("977"), so its a very limited issue

@ bjjocsdradio - these errors have always been there to a lesser or greater extent, nearly always with Error 503 or 'Failed to Load'. Doubt this is AOL exceeding their bandwidth allowance, could be maintenance but more likely database error.

If you decide you like the new style better than the old style after all, you can revert to the new style listings by deleting the following lines from 'ml_online.ini' :

ScRadioBeta=classic
ScTvBeta=classic

or just delete the whole file.

New ShoutCastTV - I hate it, still ... please return normal mode

I have tried every variation I can think of installing those scr and sctv downloads, and editing the ml_online file.

NOTHING WORKS, it does NOT restore the "old/GOOD" ShoutCastTV within WinAmp

PLEASE provide a FIX, the new SCTV is, for all intensive purposes, UNUSABLE.

Read the note 4 or 5 above yours. Provides directions to get the "classic" version back without resorting to what your trying to do. Use F5 from the Shoutcast Radio screen to refresh the view and the classic link will appear for your use. Not sure if this applies to TV but it's nice to have the radio back.

I got my classic SHOUTcast back!

I'm sure I'll like the redesign once it's a little further along and some of the issues brought up on this thread have been addressed. But in the meantime, thanks for the link back to the old SHOUTcast page.

Cheers, faisal, thanks for all the hard work.


P.S.
Please don't used paged results for the redesigned site.
Sortable columns are so much better, IMO.

Thanks for providing the end-user an option to return to the original "classic" view of Shoutcast Radio. The channel selection choices and description views are FAR BETTER in the original "classic" single-page view (even with the longer vertical scrolling).

I really didn't like the new beta version's "flipping" through many endless and extremely TIME CONSUMING method of viewing online pages just to be able to see and find the many diverse music channel choices Shoutcast Radio has to offer. I know this "new page flipping" method is a way to display more advertisement banners per page, but please find another way to enhance your sales and revenue prospects without destroying the end-user experience and our ability to RAPIDLY and efficiently find the many diverse music genre channels available on Shoutcast.

I vote to keep old style view as an ALWAYS available option.
I don't care what the beta offers now or in the future it will never have the same ease of use as old style.

Like I've said before I don't care about advertising, I just want Winamp to be EASY to use.

Unfortunately advertising is a big part of moving
things forward,AOL after all is a profit making corp
and the use of adverts is the only thing that keeps
winamp and SHOUTcast free.

The beta stuff is the future ,like it or not eventially
it will be up to you as a user to adjust to the changes
because the "classic" features will eventially be removed
and replaced with evolved versions.

So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish.

OK...

The sponsors are important, I understand.

But do not be a viable list "classical" enter each 20 results 1 advertisement followed by 20 other results and maintain the list of a single page, that would not be so upset.

Suggestions?
