This is an extremely nice snippet and about what I'm looking for.Loudmouths
are a social discussion group that met on a community radio site called ShoutOk.com. The site is buggy, poorly written, and barely functioning. But it is the source for a Talk News Radio station so we had to use it. We got fed up with it last week and built this site (Thanks to TP, SMF, Tufat, and others) for under $20 total cost.
The only thing we did not have when I discovered your post was a way to stream the station and a user blog. The User Blog won't happen soon, but I am so thankful for your snippet. It will allow us to prove that you can get a quality community for a bare minimum (if that) budget.
Now, I have some requests of you geniuses. I would like to present my users with the option of selecting the player and to also have the option of running the player as part of the page as well as the popup it currently provides.
While I'm at it, does anyone know if there is any legal problems that may occur from streaming radio stations through a player embedded in another site? We are concerned because our site once it streams the radio, will cause a mass exodus...that is how bad the site is. I hate to hijack people from a site, but when the site is completely disfunctional, we feel it's our only option.
