ClearChannel Internet Radio
I have been using my carpc for a while to listen to internet radio from many different radio stations. The problem I've come across is that a lot of stations go through a lot of trouble to make sure you only listen to them through the web browser, and not directly to the stream itself, that way you can be subjected to the advertising on the page. Clearchannel, which operates a LOT of stations in the country have a standardized streaming format, and I think I would be able to make a program that can get the stream info, along with artist/title/album info, from any clearchannel station. What I don't know, is how hard would it be to make streetdeck use this information? I'm new to StreetDeck, but the DigitalMod feature seems to be capable of this.
Anyone got any sample code I could use to make the mod from? I'm really only familiar (enough) with VB.Net, and could easily code up the parsing code to get the stream address, just need to know what I need to do wiht that once I get it.
