It would be very nice if the player could handle
streamed mp3 (coming from a streaming server such as
icecast/shoutcast/darwin/...)

I tried but with last release it seems to download the
mp3 without detecting that it's a stream. that's to say
it stucks on "loading playlist" and loops forever I
presume.

Maybe just pushing the streamed mp3 to the output
buffer could do the trick (I suppose : I'm no flash
developper).

    I tried and it is playing streamed mp3s' but with a few quirks.
    Here's my setup.

    WindowsXP sp2, icecastv2, winamp5.3, OddcastV3.
    In that setup the player plays smoothly without hiccups.
    (the player under IE and Firefox)

    VMWare CentOS4.4, icecastv2, ices0-0.4 (the vmware is
    running insided the windowsxp box)
    In this setup the player plays the song but it stops every 2
    secs and plays again. It seems
    the problem is with the vmware thing.

    How did I setup up the player? I just made the song_url the
    source of the stream.
    musicplayer.swf?song_url=http://192.168.1.118:8000/stream.ogg

    Will try to run the linux server on it's own box so I can
    narrow down the fault.
    It seems the player need some bigger buffering and there's
    no way to increase it by passing a variable.

    Okay. Thanks chrooted, by passing directly the url of the
    stream via song_url= it works.

    Details:
    ices 0.4 + icecast 2.3 on Fedora Core 5 == [ mp3 24kHz mono
    on a 1Mb/s line ] ==> xspf_player 0.23 on Win2k / Firefox 1.5

    it would be nice if the player could catch the id3 tags
    inside the stream from time to time.

    I use this for hitzradio. All you need to do is change the server url, but keep the semicolon and everything past it.
