I run Slimserver 6.02 on Windows2000.

I have 2000 streams and minimum bitrate 0.



Something has happened with Shoutcast with the number of jazzstations. Now
they are 12 and what I remember they were about 37.



What has happened?



Kind Regards

winamp development was shut down by AOL a while back. given that winamp was
responsible for shoutcast as well, I have seen some speculation that shoutcast
would also suffer. Try checking the website (shoutcast.com) to see if there
are only 12 jazz stations to be found.

What version of slimserver are you running? I've been working a lot on
Shoutcast recently...

Happy guy, btw: I can't even download 2000 streams as there's one entry
which makes XML::Simple cough... But with 1000 streams I get 17 streams in
Jazz.

With a little work around that XML::Simple problem I now got 51 stations
in Jazz (out of 2000). I guess there's nothing wrong.
