WTF is this?

Looks like someone has integrated the Shoutcast directory right into their website:

Ohh that's naughty, you are not allowed to do that, unless you license it and even then it gets the data by XML, that site looks like it just harvest the HTML data. It's very slow though, little point in using it.


Do not PM me for tech support !

haha, the search does not work.
oh pizzah, they even took the download section
http://www.ruv.net/webgrab/wg.php?we....com/download/

They just take the file directly from shoutcast.com and apply their own style to it..

Impressive they know how to do this. but very wrong. thats bandwidth leaching.


someonebody's gonna get an email from tom pepper soon, i just have that feeling.

yeah, i'm back.

it's not impressive, it is no technological leap to rip content from another dynamic directory, it's been done quite a few times and each time they get banned. It's been happening since SHOUTcast's directory was released to the public, nothing new.

Well, anythings impressive to me.

Of course, I would never want to either.

I kinda see how they did it (considering the name of the script is in the URL of the page). I just noticed it doing some searching on the web and thought it kinda dirty for them to take a directory of stations (one I'm listed in), place it on their website and put banners on the page to make money off of mine, the other broadcasters and Shoutcast's hard work.

Dirty scoundrels.
