Did you really see meta-data? Or did it show data from the playlist-
file? Or did you see the data (name and genre) provided in the http-
header upon connect?
Shows "CLUB 977 The 80s Channel (HIGH BANDWIDTH)" in WinAmp. But this
is due to the "title" set in the .pls and/or provided in the http-
When I open http://184.108.40.206:80/stream/1040 directly in WMP 9, it
also shows the station-name provided by "icy-name" in the header and
the genre without problems, it seems.
So WinAmp seems to have general icy-support. But maybe it doesn't
support updates sent in the data-stream but just information provided
in the http-header?
<p>Max, would really appreciate if you could tell us a reproducable URL
where you see metadata actually working.
