Hi all,

As we have moved to the Xiph server at OSUOSL - we have now disabled

A great news! 13K+ stations is much better than just 1K!

Personally I'm very

I am maintaining two Icecast-related projects, which both have been
switched to use compressed downloads:

- an XBMC add-on to listen to Icecast stations (part of the official
repository; see www.xbmc.org for details)

- an Android Icecast player (
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.voody.icecast.player) -
the updated version 2.0 has just been pushed, will be live in about 24

Although it's not difficult to figure out, I'm available to answer
questions on his to implement compressed download (transparently or not),
how to deal with download progress bars in the case of compressed downloads

With my best regards,

Assen Totin
