I join the plea of users who beg for a CLASSIC shoutcast experience.
That there exists such a crowd, I am made well aware of via any search engineâ€™s results.
But that there is a solution for our needs of simplicity, I am yet to discover.
I want that good â€˜ol winamp radio, Green and black.
Where what you had was NOT a miniature browser, with a picture banner displayed, and searching that demanded consistent use of bandwidth, but a simple window, that would download all the playlists from winamp. com/radio, then have you FILTER SEARCH that which you have already downloaded â€“ a few kilobytesâ€¦
Choosing the â€œclassic shoutcastâ€ that is offered at the top of this page will get you something that LOOKS similar, but works differently.
When this is selected, FILTER SEARCHING is accomplished by a live, online search and filter of the above url, AS OPPOSED TO, a filtering search OF THE PLAYLIST LISTING you have downloaded (as the older versions of winamp do) from that url.
If it were not for one factor, I would revert to my old winamp radio goodness, (found up to version 5.03 I believe). And that is that these older versions to NOT get the url info from the different genreâ€™s found under the main radio url (eg. winamp. com/radio/electro) but rather, from the main parent page ONLY â€“ i.e - winamp. com/radio.
If that werenâ€™t the case â€“ Iâ€™d be a happier man.
Do say thereâ€™s a solution for this bandwidth munchingâ€¦â€™improvementâ€™â€¦
Thanks in advance
