Since winamp 5 doesn't have a mini browser, the old way no longer works. I just found a new way to do it that works with winamp 5. Here's the solution..
AudiStream found hereâ€¦ http://www.winamp.com/plugins/details/137166
AudiStream is a program to tell others what songs youâ€™re listening to. It has some request signing up for an online account on a website thatâ€™s gone. The program seems to be long abandoned, but it will work for our purposes with out signing up for an account. Hereâ€™s the stepsâ€¦
Download the files and extract into your winamp folder
Start up winamp, decline offer to set up an account
Right click in winamp to get tool bar open
Go to options > preferences. This will pop up the preferences window
Scroll down the left hand side window and select general purpose under the plug-ins section
Click audistream in right side window
Click â€œconfigure selected plug-inâ€ at bottom
This opens the audistream configure window
Click web posting
We are only going to fill in the 1st line just below the example of http://www.domain.com/~user/script.cgi.
Do NOT fill anything in to username or password. The url we are going to put in will look like thisâ€¦.
you will need to fill it in with the correct information. 1st put in your shoutcastâ€™s domain or ip info. Then put in your port number. Shoutcastâ€™s default port is 8000. Finally put in the admin password for your stream. Fill all of that in and click save. Close out the preferences window and your ready to go. Now ever time this winamp plays a song, it will over write what ever id3 tag your shoutcast server currently has. Use this carefully. I use a special install of winamp just for this. If not, you could over write some other djâ€™s tags accidentally while playing songs on your computer.
The only issue i have is sending to 2 different shoutcast servers. I tried renaming the .dll to have to different copies like i've done with other plugins, but no luck. Any one know away to stack none dsp plugins or to duplicate this one? thanks.
