    ID3 Text in RR when playing internet radio station?

    I have a playlist file which connects to an internet radio server, and when viewing it in winamp, it shows the name of the song and artist currently playing, but in RR, the text only shows the URL of the server. Is it possible to get RR to display the same text as what winamp is displaying?

    yea.. if you use the latest RR, and you have winamp set to support titles, i like read metadata in background option... (its in winamp prefs, titles)

    and TRACKNAME too

    OK Thanks...I haven't updated to the newest RR yet, so this can't be done with previous versions (back when it was Road Runner) ?

    Awesome...got it installed today and it works great. I have some changes to make on my existing skins because some of the things no longer work, like track time remaining, etc., but that's stuff I can figure out later.
    Thanks!

    i know of nothing that no longer works... there are som some changes for sure, but in most cases things should work exactly the same, the skin might need a tweak, because of added error checking, or bugs that where there...

    So this SORT-OF works. I have to connect to the internet before I even load RideRunner or else the text won't display. If RR already launches (which it does immediately as soon as XP boots), and then I connect to the internet (bluetooth tethering via iPhone), I am unable to launch the internet radio station. I must close RR and re-launch it (which I could probably just re-start winamp). Isn't there a way to tell Winamp to try to connect to the station anyway. I am not understanding why it has to be restarted once the connection has been established.
