I've made a bunch of improvements today and i'm hoping to push a release out by the end of this week. but i'm not understand how i can send the data from my label to TRACKNAME. I'm gonna feel like RRShoutcast is incomplete until i figure out SOME way to get the currently playing shoutcast song showing/updating in a label.
    We (Chuck, Mitchjs, JohnWPB, myself and others) have had many conversations about showing the current playing Internet radio stream data in Road Runner. Settings have to be exact in Winamp and here, GDIPlus.dll and some other stuff has to be appropriate versions. Once all is set, the TRACKNAME label will automatically display the artist and title of Shoutcast radio stream, but (yes there's always a but) it has to be refreshed with RELOADLIST. It doesn't update otherwise. Chucks comment above explains his method for updating it, mine is a lot more complicated. The easiest way is a timer or I also prepend my exit commands with RELOADLIST so everytime I switch screens its updated.

    I also highly recommend you also display the radio stationID with the "Include Stream Name in Title" via checkbox in Winamp>>Options>>Preferences>>Plugins>>Input>>Null Soft MPEG Audio Decoder>>Configure>>"Streaming" Tab
    Without the above, Since your plugin doesn't keep the highlight on the current playing stream, I often get lost trying to figure out which stream I'm playing. We covered pretty much everthing Internet Radio in RR in the above referenced thread, you may want to read through it all.

    P.S. I'm just brainstorming here but couldn't my comment #2 be accommodated by loading the genre list of stream data into an array so when I select a particular stream in the list - the Winamp data for Name, Now Playing, Genre, Bitrate, Type, and Listeners could populate the RR labels. Again the shoutcast label for "Now Playing" needs to be changes to "Last Song Upon Load" or something like that and add TRACKNAME under the heading of "Now Playing" on the skin.

    don't forget you have to have a playlist in all skins with TRACKNAME in it for this to work even if you cant see it.

    Get no argument here, but remember three years ago when I started this, no one cared.

    the problem with that is RR doesnt know the difference between audio and internet radio. Maybe a new ACTIVESOURCEID should be created for internet radio.. and my plugin and other internet radio plugins could set the source programatically so that rr knows when internet radio is playing and AUDIO is pressed to reload the audio playlist. Right now i'm doing this with timers in my plugin. I'll have to holler at mitch if he's around today

    Wow, I'm late to the Shoutcast party. I can't believe I've missed out on this all these years. This plugin looks like a great addition to RideRunner. Nice work, Sonic!

    Just curious whether there has been any progress on the "Now Playing" issue. This plugin has such great potential that it would be a shame if that critical piece remains missing.
