Url parameters?

Are there any channels that accept URL parameters yet? I would like to integrate them into my remote

Re: Url parameters?

A couple of my channels do, but the only one with real utility is the SHOUTcast channel, which allows you to launch the channel directly into a custom SHOUTcast station. The URL query parameters, if you're interested, are:

  • url - The URL to the SHOUTcast stream

  • name - The display name of the station

I may add to this in the future, depending on demand, but those get the job done.

Is there a certain list of channels that you use?

The SHOUTcast channel uses the SHOUTcast directory, which includes tens of thousands of stations, but I've had a few requests from users asking for the ability to add their own private SHOUTcast channels that aren't in the directory. There is no specific list.
