SHOUTcast service

SHOUTcast service

SHOUTcast service

Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  8476
Submitted:  Dec 9 2009
Updated:  Jan 3 2011


this is a simple SHOUTcast service, it trys to replace the default shoutcast service that is not included in amarok anymore (talking about amarok 2.2.1 andy few older versions :))

you can browse genres and search for stations

for any suggestions and/or bugs (bug fixes preferred :D) send me an email

hope you like it!
-update 2.11
another temporary solution

-update 2.1
changed url for fetching the results, I hope this time it's gonna last longer..

-update 2.0
it was time to get searching working again!
here are the changes:

- searching via amarok's fiter
- specify wanted bitrate while searching: add 'br=192' to the query for stations with bitrate 192; e.g. 'house br=192'
- added shoutcast's top500 stations at the top of the ganres (you can limit number of fetched stations in preferences)
- preselected list of common genres (instead of showing all 300+ of them); this can be changed in preferences
- preferences
- set limit of fetched stations when browsing, searching and for Top500 (shoutcast's top stations)
- make a list of your preferred genes by enabling/disabling them

note: there might be some issues with fetching and displaying stations if you have less than 6 genres selected, so make sure, you select at least 6 of them!

-update 1.01
a really small update, script stopped working because shoutcast urls were changed. Thanks to a-glazachev's comment I hadn't even have to look them up :)

note: search had to be implemented in that way because i couldn't get the amarok's filter option to work properly...

(shoutcast service 2.11)

 Broken Filter

The problem with using the filter in scripts is a known issue, and one I consider a showstopper for soon to ne released Amarok 2.2.2 as it breaks many scripts, including the Librivox script which is included by default, so I am going to try very hard to fix it.

Other than that, this script works very nicely, great work :-)

 Shoutcast, Amarok

Much appreciated! Since I used to listen to various Internetradiostations before,I was at first very dissapointed with Amarok 2.2.

Many thanks, now it works perfectly well!

 How do I search

Hi there. I accept your apology about search working in a strange way, but can't figure out what that way is. How do I search for a station?

yes, I know that search is not working anymore - new version of amarok fixed some scripting bugs but apparently also changed some previous functionality. In short, I can't insert search results as I could before. I tried to fix this as soon as I saw that it's not working anymore but I found out that the easiest way would be to use now working search filter, that means I must change quite a lot of code.

Now, besides not having a lot of time, there is another thing that stopped me to update and fix this script:

it seems that winamp api will not be accessible to not registered users very soon..

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
