I've seen a lot of requests for an RSS feed and I'm going to start working on coding one up (provided it is okay with SS).

One of my goals will to minimize the bandwidth consumed by the feed. I'll use PHP which will grab the playlist once every min or two, and parse that into a RSS feed. This way, even though there might be hundreds of people using RSS, the SS bandwidth consumed would only be of a single viewer downloading the playlist page every min or so.

At this time I am planning on hosting the script on my website.

Please let me know of your thoughts.

Ok, I have all the parsing done. Now for building the RSS stream...

Hi Tirian. I had something similar written but it's a windows app. It quietly sits in the system tray so it doesn't take up any taskbar space. Though it just gets the "Now Playing" section. I've written it more than a month ago, so if someone's is interested in it let me know. I use winamp not the live365 player(though perhaps I should) so I want to know what's playing without continuously loading up the site.

Thanks Albi,

I should have the stream up and running by the end of the day (hopefully). I have a big robotics project due that'm working long hours on so I've had a minimal amount of free time.

Techo,
Thanks for the offer, but as I use Linux, it would help me very much Smile . The main reason I wanted to use RSS is that it will allow the end user to use whatever reader they want or even take the stream and integrate it into another program since all the parsing will be done for them.

BTW, I love your avatar!

Thanks m8. Goodluck with your project Smile

About the RSS, which reader would you recommend? I don't have any of the IM programs running so if there is a nice lightweight reader I would certainly like to try it out.

Albi, it's similar in sense that is also gets and parses part of the site's que page then displays it in an out of site form. Being a windows app and not web based I know it can't be run on Linux or MacOS, without any emulators of course.

Some RSS readers

Mozilla Thunderbird (e-mail client) and Opera browser have built-in RSS support

Mozilla Firefox extension: Sage

Search for RSS on http://sourceforge.net/search/ for some free and stand-alone RSS readers (Windows only if I'm not mistaken)


This RSS feed might be nicer if, in the end, it got integrated into the site. This way it can read the queue directly instead of parsing HTML which is a much neater solution IMO.

  • The image of the RSS stream is set the cover of the currently playing soundtrack
  • The currently playing as well as the next 9 soundtracks are included into the RSS feed
  • If you click on the RSS item it will display the information of the album.
  • The title of each RSS item includes the song name and album.
  • The description of each RSS item includes:
    • User Rating
    • Votes cast for rating
    • Percent
    • Score (in %)
    • Member who requested the song
    • Message attached by member (if exists)
  • The RSS feed updates itself every 2 min.
  • The RSS feed only updates if a user has accessed the feed recently
Here is an image of the feed on my desktop showing only the RSS titles:

I made a slight adjustment to the script. It now caches pages that it downloads. This way it reduces the amount of streamingsoundtracks's bandwith it uses.

Unfortunately there is a NO PAGE FOUND at that address currently.

Admins - Will you please create an RSS feed and if you will not then please make an explanation as to why not? It would soothe many souls.
