How Do I Start Shoutcast?
Posted 27 April 2004 - 11:23 PM
I'm a noob who wants to use shoutcast? I have xbmc 4-19-04 and I also find "shoutcast update" in the script folder.
I do I get this f..ken shoutcast started?

you need to open the update script on your pc with notepad and edit the configuration settings to get the type of music you like. Then save it in the scripts directory on your xbox. Make sure you have the folder for the radio stations set where you want it.
go into xboxmediacenter.xml and add the path to your shoutcast radiostations; which is the radio station folder from above. Then you need to make sure you have your networking stuff all correct. Save the xboxmediacenter.xml and upload it to you xbox.
Next start xbmc goto settings, general, scripts, and run the shoutcast_update script.
Then go to your My Music tab and go into your radio station tab "whatever you called it" and select the stream you want to listen to.
I'm done holding your hand now

-create a folder in your xbox called shoutcast (preferably on the same drive as all the other files you goto with xbmc...eg videos/music)
-on your pc goto the shoutcast home page and right click the 'tune in' icon next to each channel and save the links to a folder
-now all you have to do is take the links that you copied and ftp them into your shoucast folder on your xbox
when you want to stream a station just open xbmc and then goto the shoutcast folder and open a link
-this will work without python installed as well
-as long as your xbox is set up to be online,you should have no problems,some stations will not conect though....but other than that it's all gravy.
