Subject Re: Serving ICY streams from a servlet
Date Tue, 26 Feb 2008 07:00:14 GMT
I agree that the Shoutcast protocol concocted by Nullsoft and by several
media players is more of an ugly trick from a protocol perspective. If
anyone has a better suggestion for a streaming protocol (RTSP or RTP?)
which is supported by the mentioned mediaplayers I am open for the
suggestion. Probably could make a Coyote connector for that if need be.
