I do sometimes wonder if the 'search forums' link is broken or if people are just too damned lazy to look for a question that is asked about eleventy twelve times a day.

That's not what the guy was asking, I have the same problem, I need a java applet or a flash thing to be able to load a shoutcast stream in computers that dont have real player installed, because windows media player wont support shoutcast streams and if the person doesnt have Real Player installer and its a lamer, he will not be able to listen when loading a radio station website. Understood ? Any solutions for this ?

Thanks.

Windows Media Player *will* support shoutcast streams. (For proof, follow the link below to ASF Radio - it's 100% SHOUTcast)

If your listeners don't have Windows Media Player, iTunes, Winamp, RealPlayer or any of dozens of other players, then chances are they're not into streaming stuff on their computer. Flash won't work with shoutcast. Google for a java MP3 player and see what you find.

That's the problem... a Lamer that just have Windows Media Player will not be able to listen to a shoutcast mp3 stream, it wont play it, only quicktime, winamp and real player will play it. I will try to search a java player, else, I dont have any solution than teach people how to install real player

I checked a java player but I got the same problem, many lamer windows users doesn't have Java Virtual Machine, so they will not be able to listen... The best solution is to find a way to make Windows Media Player to play shoutcast streams.

Windows media plays them fine, although you get no title.

Check out Our site you can either play in windows media player, or try the 'open a popup player' link, for a little embedded win media player.

I want like how you have got it Oldskoolradio. Now how do you make the connection to the .asx file for the media player that opens in the new window to the file that is running on the main site i have it like in the link the Evil Lu said (Like ur popup window) but i want it directly into the media player so that when you click media player it will launch a new media player window but how do you connect that radio to the asx file and the files for real player etc.

for opening in all the different players,

embedded players as lu mentioned,

or like this to get the player to open with the site in it
http://forums.streamsolutions.co.uk/...hp?p=3228#3228

you need to host these files on a web server and have asx enabled in the mime options which can be found in the webhosts cp ,,, if you have no cp then you need to contact the webhost to enable it,

i hope this helps

I think you don't understand the concept of this player,

a windows media player can't handle the /listen.pls at the end of the link, but if you leave that out, Windows media player PLAYS any shoutcast stream (besides AAC+) just fine.

search these forums on how to make an asx. or asf. link on your webspace.

freedomaudio seems to be a big hit amongst shoutcasters as far as a java player is concerned.

What we did was set the link to load a .m3u file and it brings ups whatever player they have installed as the default and plays nicely. Works for Windows Media Player, Winamp and iTunes. Not sure about Real Media Player yet.

often times you shouldnt need to worry about that. ONLY if the link doesnt work (ie. it displays the source of the asx file instead of trying to download or open it in windows media player) would you need to check to see if the mime type is there.

if it says its conncting ot media, then the mime types are setup correctly. what that means is that you cant connect to the server. if this is you connecting to a server on your own machine, your modem/router may not support loopback using your external address.

Player Codes

This is the code for Windows Media Player, It will also load your web page inside of the player! Create the file in NotePad and save it with the extension yourfile.asx instead of yourfile.txt. You will save this file and upload it to your website directory. Then create a link on your webpage that will address that yourfile.asx file.

Ex. "www.your site.com/yourfile.asx"

:THE CODE:

<ASX version="3.0">
<entry>
<PARAM name="HTMLView" value="http://your webpage.com"/>
<ref href = "http://your ip:your port"/>
<Copyright>Your Name</Copyright>
<Author>Your Name</author>
<Title>What ever you want</Title>
<Title>What ever you want</title>
</entry>
</ASX>

**********************************************************
This is the code for Real Audio Media Player. Create the file in NotePad and save it with the extension yourfile.ram instead of yourfile.txt. You will save this file and upload it to your website directory. Then create a link on your webpage that will address that yourfile.ram file.

Ex. "www.your site.com/yourfilename.ram"

:THE CODE:

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:-1,(Your Website Name)
http://your ip:your port#

************************************************************
Also you can make an m3u file in NotePad, then upload it to your site and create a link that will address that *.m3u file. This will automatically load your playlist into whatever player the visitor uses. When you create the file save it as a yourfile.m3u file instead of a tex file.

ex. "http://www.yoursite.com/yourfile.m3u

:THE CODE: (in his example, there are 3 IPs and 3 ports)

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:-1,YourSite.com "Your Message")
http://YourIP#1:Port#1
#EXTINF:-1,(YourSite.com "Your Message")
http://YourIP#2:Port#2
#EXTINF:-1,(YourSite.com "Your Message")
http://YourIP#:Port#3

************************************************************
I got this info from the forums and from other sites.
