SHOUTcast service

SHOUTcast service

SHOUTcast service

Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  8828
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..

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
