View Full Version : Shoutcast radio hangs on some stations
October 25th, 2008, 06:27 PM
when trying to play some shoutcast stations like 1.FM Chillout lounge i get the progress indicator at which point it hangs. i can't back out or take any other actions other than pulling the plug on my Apple TV. i'm able to replicate this issue.

I tried this today for the first time on my Linux distro on Ubuntu 8.10. Shoutcast failed all 3 times... Resulting in COMPLETE CRASH of BOXEE.
Tried 3 different stations, the first one CHIRPED like it was going to go then BOOM down it went.

Same issue here, have to force quit boxee and restart.

Well I guess I'll have to bring this one back from the dead. I don't think this is just Shoutcast. After doing alot of searching I've come across people on all platforms having problems with streaming radio crashing in general. Most of the stuff I read was problems on linux, but I have the same problem on ATV.
So far 4 of the shoutcast stations have forced me to hard reboot my ATV. Will update if I find more streaming radio stations/channels that have crashed on my system.
Anyword on a fix for this yet?

Shoutcast is just broken.
Marcel has asked for debug logs in the past, lets hope it's getting fixed
