    [Tutorial] listen to any to any Shoutcast stream on 2.0 jailbreak

    1. download a simple streaming radio app from appstore, ex: Radio 105
    2. goto shoutcast.com and right-click a 'tune in' link to save a playlist to your desktop
    3. open the .pls file with a text editor and copy one of the http: URLs defined by File=
    4. scp into your device and goto /private/var/mobile/Applications
    5. find the bundle that contains the radio app (should be the newest folder created ifyou just grabbed the radio app for the first time)
    6. the bundle will contain a folder 'Radio 105.app' or similar, go in there
    7. edit in-place or download-to-edit the file 'config.plist'
    8. change the line after <key>ShoutcastURL</key>, it will start with <string> and contain an http:// url that points to a stream
    9. change the URL to one you got from step 3, then save the file back to the device
    10. try the radio app with your new stream!

    *you may of course change the other items in the plist to whatever you wish
    **this works with any of the 'Radio 105 Network' apps, meaning you can download and modify several apps and keep whichever custom stations you want for each.

    make sure if you are adding a link that ends in a port that you add a trailing slash at the end, like so:
    Code:
    <string>http://74.52.13.138:8000/</string>

    gonna try to make a radio statio switching app, like a radio pwner

    it should be a simple maintatinable list of stream urls that will be fed to the radio of your choice just as it's loaded. I will include maybe a dozon good stations with it to demo.

    does anyone have any requests?

    Thanks so much!

    the shame with Radio 105 .. Is that it doesn't show the currently playing song. =-(



    I don't think people realize how powerful this is..

    http://www.shoutcast.com/
    >>
    Any station on there, download the .pls open in wordpad.. And you can listen to that radio station on your iPod touch if you got wireless connectivity.. And I guess iphone users with unlimited data or whatever can enjoy even more..

    Personally I wanted h2kradio.com which does NOT show up on the official SHOUTCAST App or on TuneWiki. so now I can add whatever radio stations I wanted.
    I ADDED 2 stations to the list.

    Code:
    	<array>
    		<dict>
    			<key>description</key>
    			<string>H2kRadio</string>
    			<key>streamURL</key>
    			<string>http://www.h2kradio.com:7001/</string>
    			<key>title</key>
    			<string>H2K</string>
    		</dict>
    		<dict>
    					<key>description</key>
    					<string>TECHOBASESTR</string>
    					<key>streamURL</key>
    					<string>http://78.159.104.184:80/</string>
    					<key>title</key>
    					<string>TECHNOBASE</string>
    		</dict>
    		
    		
    	</array>
