So I am always finding good stations on Shoutcast, but when I want to save one to my playlists, I need to go to the computer, Google the originating site, open iTunes, manually type in the URL, save it to a playlist, and then rescan playlists. So I usually don't. What would be cool is an option under the right arrow, something like "Save to New Playlist", that would create a new playlist for the current stream. There's the Favorites option there now, but that isn't something I really use.

There's the SavePlaylist plugin which does this for you. It's installed by
default, but you might have to go to the Plugins menu to find it.

Awesome, that is exactly what I was looking for, thanks. When did that sneak in there?

I have added the Save Playlist plugin into my PlaylistMan plugin too. Once installed, press and hold Add on the Now Playing screen. A menu will pop up, containing an option to save playlist.

My website contains a version for <= v.6.3. I have a version that works for 6.5 but haven't released this yet.
