Shoutcast only works in quicktime or direct- not flash

Hello I am a veteran server admin but new to Shoutcast so hopefully someone can point me to some previous threads or tell me what to do.

I purchased Shoutcast Admin Pro and set it up on one of my boxes successfully, and have set up a station using a default mp3 playlist, which can be heard fine via Windows Media Player or via Quicktime, BUT ONLY IN IE! If I pull up the same page in Firefox- nothing. Further, no flash player of any kind will work, and I have tried numerous paid and free ones.

See the bahavior here:

or here to get to other flash player:
http://abidinglife.com/radio/flashden

Again, in Internet Explorer the Quicktime and Media PLayer works fine, and connecting directly works fine:
67.19.1.42 port 6000

Thanks for any help you can give.

Bob

Flash players should work fine. add ;/ to the end of the ip:port, like http://67.19.1.42:6000;/

This makes the server give the mp3 stream and not the http page.

Works for us, good luck!

That makes no difference as I had already tried that. The real issue I think must be something else, otherwise there would not be a disparity between browsers, etc...

Thanks tho.

Oldskoolradio was almost right

to play in flash

http://67.19.1.42:6000/;play.mp3

The ';' tells Shoutcast (sc_serv) to assume media play and return as such. Shoutcast will ignore everything after the ';' as well.

It also helps winamp know what input plug-in to load, which is why it's required for nsv streams ( iport/;stream.nsv )

flash players, firefox

Well it turns out that the problem is that Firefox and Safari, and apparantly Flash program block access to port 6000. Any tips on how to make it work across all browsers?

Change the port?

Your mileage may vary!

You will need a crossdomain policy file on port 80 that has the attribute to-ports="80,6000" or to-ports"*"

A simple web server can do this for you if you dont want to set up apache.

research "flash crossdomain.xml"
