It does appear to be down at the moment.
With the announcement of winamp's demise (or sale ) there may be
some licence or tech issues in regards to shoutcasts mp3 licensing.

DrO may be along shortly to spank & educate me regarding this.

So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish.

DrO appears to be the only remaining shoutcast staff on these forums.
He has not posted on this forum since 31st dec 2013.
Be patient, he may be on holiday/vacation.

Winamp looks to have been sold, this WILL affect sc mp3 encoder licensing.
It MAY take a long time to sort out.

So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish.

This whole Winamp sale (???) / closure thing is so confusing. If anyone knows if you can purchase an mp3 license key on SHOUTcast yet, let me know please (this thread is a month or so old, so I'm hoping things have changed).

I love Winamp, so I hope this lives on. Seems like it could be a great opportunity to make a strong presence in the smart phone database. I love listening to tunes when jogging (and having music has given me the motivation to lose ~10 pounds of fat so far), and I'm a Winamp fanboy, so I'd love-love-love to see an app migration.

Fingers crossed!

add video streaming and just charge $20 for everything, then jazz up the admin backend with some htaccess deney all ip from even seeing a page, make your own codec and player that can obsure streaming urls etc, and charge $295 for the full version + whatever for number of relay licences

Ok, since we can't purchase a code, is there an alternative to sc_trans anyone can recommend, I'm current running under Linux and use the DJ port on a regular basis for live cutting shows from several of our DJs that work remotely from their own setups ....

Is there any update regarding the MP3 licenses or alternatives?
This is really annoying as nobody can help to get further or provides alternatives to move on?

To cut it short: is there any way to get my hands on some of those MP3 licenses?

there is no further update on the matter as it's already been stated that sc_trans has been dropped. if you badly want to use it, just find someone who is using it and copy their key (there was never a way to track such things from happening anyway and give 2 fingers to to licensing companies which lead to having to have that functionality in sc_trans).

No need for mp3 unlock key

Since this thread is pretty old, I know many of you know by now that you can use Centova Shoutcast v2 with liquidsoap instead of the sc_trans and will not need a mp3 code. This is what I use personally and what many of our clients use.
