Shoutcast streaming channel

Hi

I would like to create a stable shoutcast mp3 streaming channel for my online station

I have checked the forums for the last year and I can't find any clear understandable documentation to make the song metadata and artwork appear. My other problem is that sometimes the station starts playing immediately other times it take up to 5 minutes to start the stream.

Are there any whizkids that can help with easy steps to resolve my issues?

Thanks in advance

Re: Shoutcast streaming channel

This might help with the mp3 streams that take 5 minutes to buffer before they start playing: http://forums.roku.com/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=63904#p482905

Re: Shoutcast streaming channel

Roku doesn't support pulling Shoutcast metadata from an audio stream.

I've brought it up a few times, but it's not a priority. See this thread: viewtopic.php?f=34&t=86940&p=491503&hilit=shoutcast#p491503
