Skinnable Web'Face

Simple Request: The ability to skin the web interface. this is one lacking feature of the Shoutcast DNAS and was one of the most requested imo.

i dont know how much youve delved into the phpbb themese in these forums, but if you look at any of the tpl files, there are placeholders in there for realtime stats such as {USER_NAME} which in the end will show up as "Vchat20" or "Jay". this is essentially what i was thinking as a skinning system for Steamcast.

yea I understand this, the only concern about this I have is the same as SHOUTcast's What real purpose does that serv? The admin interface is built for the use of the station operator not the listeners or the general public for that matter. Wouldn't it be far better to just have this integrate with your webserver through other means like XML, YP code or other top secret stuff I am working on? ;)
