After a quick read I would guess the instruction in Slimserver would
work because shoutcast uses port 8000 as default
Try this but change the ip address to your server address change the
title if you want

PS have not tried this (let me know if it works)

[playlist]
numberofentries=1
File1=http://62.49.59.50:8000
Title1=Monkeyfunk
Length1=-1
Version=2

This will work for stations currrently listed on the shoutcast web page.
I would like to use shoutcast to stream from winamp to the squeezebox.

In windows right click on the tune in button on shoutcast and save as (
save in your music folder ) it will then come up when you browse

Works for me

I would like to listen to radio stations such as the BBC on my stereo
using a squeezebox interfaced to a PC running XP. Following a recent
discussion here on this topic, I have installed the tara plugin in
winamp, and that is working fine. I have also installed the shoutcast
plugin into winamp. I am now stuck.

Could someone provide the details on how to configure the shoutcast
plugin to get it to stream its output into a playlist file to be read by
the squeezebox. An example of a playlist file would be great. Do I need
to install the shoutcast server and actually broadcast to the world?
What do I use for a url in the shoutcast output configuration?

Needless to say, this field is new to me, so detailed instructions would
be much appreciated. If there is a better way to do this with XP, I
would also appreciate hearing about it. Thanks in advance.

Karl,
Thanks for the idea. I tried to configure the shoutcast plugin in winamp to connect to localhost:8000, but it would not connect. I set <localhost> to the ip address of the ethernet card used to interface the squeezebox to. I can see the input on the level meters of the configuration panel, so I know I am getting input. But I cannot connect to the ethernet card or the squeezebox. Any more ideas?
John
