I've added a station stream URL which works fine on my SB3
and it appears that the station puts out a "now playing"
metadata so that SB3 outputs the currently playing track.
My question is slightly OT but I am wondering why I don't
see the track currently playing displayed whenever I access
the station via the same URL using Winamp (latest version
on Windows XP).

Can any radio stream gurus tell me why this might be the
case. I realise that this query is probably best posed to
a winamp support forum but I realise there is a good quorum
of folks knowledgeable about mp3 streaming radio here on
this forum !
The URL in question is :

http://89.238.146.146:7480

Must be settings in your WinAmp program. I clicked on your link, WinAmp opened and played the stream, gave me full metadata (artist, song) without issue.

Thanks Toby. I'll fiddle with settings so. Wish I knew where to start :(

Update on this - I uninstalled winamp and reinstalled it afresh (reinstalled plugins, etc) and now I see the currently playing track. Absolutely no idea what gremlins caused it to lose the "now playing" info.
