Well I did some tests and found out Fmod has no beef streaming .mp3 from an arbitrary URL – works great, but it still doesnt seem to like shoutcast streams (:8000/listen.pls).
It sends the request, gets back the playlist data just fine. The content-type returned by /listen.pls requests is audio/x-scpls (Shoutcast playlist), but since its not actually mp3 data, Fmod wont play it.
Going to simply :8000 via IE, as Fmod seems to do itself, only loads the homepage for the shoutcast station – it gets back HTML not mp3 data.
Any tips? Something I’ve done wrong? Maybe Fmod should have a flag for opening streams as Shoutcast/Icecast?
