Getting Listed on Icecast YP

I'm still trying to fathom out Icecast as it seems the next logical step when shoutcast goes down.

Does anyone know where the "public" listed stations are??

I think you have to add yourself to the directories to be listed with icecast

Found out why it wasn't listing us you need the server address in the config file and not "localhost" as the servers name.

Code: [Select]
<hostname>your server IP or web address</hostname>
http://dir.xiph.org/search?search=suburbs seems to only way i can find my station though.

At least It's listed now!!  :bash:

Cheers KingsbridgeRadio, this will save me some research.

The whole shoutcast thing is a bit of a worry. I really can't see no one somehow trying to take it on as there are Software Apps (desktop and mobile/tablet), DAB/Internet Radios, Smart TVs...even my car has access to Shoutcast directory that use the listings.

I just hope AOL see sense and try and spin it off.
