Exaile: Shoutcast Plugin 0.4.8

Some of you might have noticed that the Shoutcast plugin hasn't worked for a while, and wasn't fixed with the 0.2.14 update. This is because they changed the way that their site looks, and so the plugin wasn't able to parse it.

A quick look at our forums showed that someone had figured out how to fix it (at least until they change the format again), and so I've made the changes and released version 0.4.8 of the plugin (thanks JDorfler).

Exaile 0.3 uses Shoutcasts API, so it should be less susceptible to these UI changes.

Hi Adam, seems like there is something wrong with your rss2 feed. the url's in it give 404's.

Ok, it should be fixed now.

Have you tried parsing from the following link?

www.shoutcast.com/sbin/newxml.phtml


it passes back an xml file and you can pass in variables such as genre=24hrs to get the listing for each genre.
