how to get listed on SHOUTcast/Icecast/RadioToolbox yp dirs

Post by THEARTOFWEB »

Hi,

I was wondering how to go about getting listed in the SHOUTcast/Icecast/RadioToolbox streams directory. I'd like to point out that I'm not using nor SHOUTcast or Icecast to broadcast. Instead I'm using a program I've written up on my own. I'm almost positive there must be some http connection between the server and the yp host. Yet, I dunno anything about that.

any help?

thanks

The shoutcast yp is a closed list there is no official documentation on how to get listed there. Steamcast and Icecast both use the same directory protocol and you can find those at Icecast.org

So, I read the protocol spec. I know how to go about getting listed. The following is the address to access Icecast YP:

Code: Select all

Directory=http://dir.xiph.org/cgi-bin/yp-cgi
What is the following?

Code: Select all

Directory=http://www.oddsock.org/cgi-bin/yp-cgi
are there any YP to get listed on?

What's the address to get listend on the RadioToolbox YP? I thought only SHOUTcast server could get listed on the SHOUTcast YP. Yet, I have found streamcast does also:

To get listed on our yp check out http://www.radiotoolbox.com/steamcast/getlisted.php

Yes, steamcast does get on there however I cannot publish the information for security reasons. It isn't difficult to figure out though. The only thing is you will not be able to list your script because you can only list an ip and port on shoutcast. Not mounts or paths. Also they throw a battery of checks at your server that have to pass.
