I didn't really get help last time I emailed this so i'll try again.

when using shoutcast it makes a listen.pls  file so if someone clicks the link http://live.domain.com/listen.pls  winamp will automaticlly open and play the stream.

right now for anyone to listen to my icecast server I tell them to open winamp and enter in http://rcscanner.dyndns.org:8000

<p>What I would like is to have a link I can give them in a email they can  just click on that would work like the shoutcast listen.pls. because right now clicking  http://rcscanner.dyndns.org:8000  will just open a broswer window and do nothing else because it doesn't know what the server is and what program to play the stream with.

I run the icecast server in windows and according to the DOCs you can't run the webserver in windows so putting a listen.pls on the icecast webserver won't work.

<p>I stream using mp3
