View Full Version : SV: SV: What has happened with the number of Shoutcaststations?

I don´t mean that I need a special Swedish manual but the language is a
problem to understand full.

What I mean is that there would be a need for some kind of manual how to set
up and adjust not only Slimserver but also for the different plugins and
what the do.

For ex I search for how to add some more stations and how I do that and what
plugin I should use.
Another thing I wrote about (and got no answer) - how to make some kind of
list for only the stations I want to listen to. As it is now I have to go to
Shoutcast - jazz - inside jazz, instead of just pointing at Inside jazz in a
list.

So one manual to clearify for us amateurs (could be in English)

Kind Regards
Tore Johnsson

As a swiss german living in the french part of this country and trying to
follow these discussions in english I know that problem...

What exactly don't you understand?

> There is a lack of information how to make the different adjustments.

May be I could explain to you and you'd send me the swedish translation
for that explanations to integrate with a future release?

But maybe your neighbour would like the full documentation in swedish ;-).

I have answered to that question before - but maybe not to your request.
There are several ways to have an easier life:

- save your favourite stream as a playlist (using the web interface or the
"Save playlist" plugin)
- use Shoutcast's "Recently played" menu which contains the last few
streams you had selected

(- wait for 6.1 which will contain a "favourite" plugin: you'll have
access to your 10 favourite streams with a single push of a button (0-9))

Does this help?

Maybe both these work with Shoutcast, I don't know.

but it's worth mentioning that the two methods are not identical when
trying to save an AlienBBC stream. Saving using the Web interface
works (though for some odd reason I only get the Save option with
some skins, not the default), but the Save Playlist plugin does not
provide correct information. It misses out some necessary lines that
can, however, be put in manually.
