Nice work. I'm sure the larger shoutacst proponents will get some serious use out of this. It will also encourage some of them to make the movet to XOOPS. I have rarely, if ever, seen a shoutcast server site run on a CMS.
This is a module that can have far reaching effects if built correctly. Congrats on a job well done and good luck on the final release.
One feature I would like to see added in future releases, is the abilty to have a client side block. Meaning, regular XOOPS users, who listen to shoucast streams on a regular basis. Something I could personaly use and would like, is the ability to add links of my favorate streams in a side block, and have a main page with descriptions and such of the server, where I can provide a link to the streams website, etc. Sort of like a condensed version of shoutcast.com, where the XOOPS admin selects what streams they would like.
It would be nice if shoutcast.com themselves privided a dynamic way to collect info from their own site, but I don't see that happening anytime soon, unless Nullsoft gets a hold of it. Considering it (Nullsoft)is now an AOL enterprise, there will never be anything open or free about that sort of feature. //end semi-rant
Anyway, good job, looking forward to future releases
