Web Based Flash Player for Icecast

Post by SdZ »

It supports icecast but i cant seem to get it working with shoutcast. Havnt tried steamcast servers yet (sorry Jay). Should work.

A great way to get more listeners in and doesnt require a seperate player. I came across this a few months ago :

http://musicplayer.sourceforge.net/

It even supports Autoplay meaning that it starts playing your radio as soon as someone lands on the web page.

I have an example of it setup here :

http://www.internet-radio.org.uk/tools/flashplayer/

I also have it embedded in Myspace here (with autoplay on, its the myspace way right ;) ) :

http://myspace.com/level1radio

Depending on the populatrity of your page ive noticed it does bring in some extra listeners and according to my logs some do hang around.

Ive done some more research and it turns out that flash will dfinatly NOT play shoutcast streams. From what i have read it is something to do with shoutcast using non-standard icy headers for the stream which flash cant handle at the moment. It appears that either macromedia or shoutcast could fix the problem but neither have yet :(

Damn shame but still it works well with icecast.
