Does shoutcast.com host a list of URL's to direct streams?
Hello all. I am new here (first post) and understand that I do not use shoutcast, myself, but have run into a php coding problem that I need help with, regarding shoutcast. I hope you all can help.
In researching the shoutcast site (and these forums) I have noticed that while shoutcast.com lists the sites of station, the URL's presented are mainly for the stations homepages. Is there a way to get a list of the url's of the actual streams themselves? Something I could plug into my own listener (client), I mean. If such a list exists, having it itemized by genre would be icing.
What I am trying to accomplish with my project is, is to have a php script on my own site that could periodically (once or twice a day) poll shoutcast.com for a list of url's (of the type I need), and update that onto a flat (text) file, which would also be on my site.
The primary purpose being to maintain a list of *active* stations, and to update the list, if a station happens to go offline.
Being new here, and a non-shoutcast user, I welcome *all* tips, tricks, comments, and advice - including negative ones - as long as they are contructive.
Thanks in advance.
