Although I have researched a lot about this matter I
still didn't find any good solution.
The problem with Icecast OGG system is that common
people doesn't want to download any other software in
order to listen to a radio station, even a plugin...
People doesn't like to have to download Quicktime, nor
Winamp. They already have Windows Media Player on
their computers, so they already listen to LAUNCHCAST
I agree that Ogg files quality have no comparison with
the old Mp3. Ogg mono files at 32k - 44.1khz is very
near CD quality. I would become a satisfied listener
with radios at 32k -44.1khz.
The problem is making Windows media Player to play it!
And this may not have any solution.
I got to solve this problem on Shoutcast systems which
broadcast in MP3. I got to make WMP play the MP3
stream very easy, without a listener having to
If people want to know how, I suggest looking my
I have Icecast streams also, which have much more
quality, but I can see, I have 10 listeners of
MP3-WMP, while having 1 Icecast listener, and I guess
the only explanation to this is that people listen to
it with WMP.
