Peter,

Thanks, what I was referring to was the list that is directly under the
client of each "ShoutcastBrowser Recently Played". You are right, I didn't
realize it, but if you drill down on each entry in the client's playlist,
then you get the detailed information, but that can be a very long list.

For example, the first hyperlink in my list is Virgin Radio, but it is
listed as (in text, not a URL, the actual underlying HREF is the second one
below).

http://www.shoutcast.com/sbin/tunein-station.pls?id=7546&filename=playli
st.pls

But the underlying URL is actually another slimserver playlist:

http://music.gauthier-family.org:9000/en/browse.html?dir=__playlists%2FShout
castBrowser_Recently_Played%2FLaptop.m3u%2F0&player=70%3A5c%3A31%3A35%3A46%3
A4a

Which then in turn lists the details of each stream of the Virgin Radio list
like this:

(#1 - 835/21544) Virgin Radio - todays best music and classic tracks, live
from London, UK
(#2 - 400/5250) Virgin Radio - todays best music and classic tracks, live
from London, UK
(#3 - 2242/18742) Virgin Radio - todays best music and classic tracks, live
from London, UK
(#4 - 50/50) Virgin Radio - todays best music and classic tracks, live from
London, UK Play


I don't know if there is anyway around this, but it would be nice to have
the text for the top hyperlink not be an apparent URL, but the descriptive
title of the station.

Regards,
