Hi,

I'm looking for a tool that checks the SHOUTcast info for an online radio stream (more than one stream would be nice, but is probably a lot harder to code) every x minutes (as specified in the settings/.ini), and would notify the user with a sound and/or popup notice (selectable in the settings/.ini) when specific keywords/phrases (as listed in the settings/.ini) fully or partially match the "Current Song" info (see http://stream2.jungletrain.net:8000/ for an example of such stream info; this is a good station to test the code on, because they publish the upcoming live shows at http://jungletrain.net/shows).

It would only do so during the times specified (in the settings/.ini).

Other feature ideas:
- display the most recent "Current Song" when you hover over its tray icon
- allow the user to choose if he wants to be notified by a tray bubble or a 'in your face' popup
- allow the user to start his favorite player directly from the popup

For obvious reasons "SHoutcast Information Tool" might not be the best name for this, but how about "SHOUTcast Radio Notifier"? It's unknown to Google as of now. 8)

You just want the websites monitored or do you want the actual streams monitored?

Just monitoring the website would be enough.

Are you (considering) coding it or were you just curious?  :D

Another feature I imagine would be nice is a combination of "always pop up if stream matches..." with "never pop up if stream matches..."

Anyone interested in coding it, maybe even as part of the NANY thing?

Might even take less than 1% of the time skwire put into Trout so far.  :D
