I'm just wondering if anyone has had any success in creating a shoucast block displaying current and recently played songs. Heck... a static page for that matter. Been going batty trying to figure this one out.

Success stories? aka...

Got it running in a static php enabled page with xml running on the back side. Now... I'm going to get this running in a block. Once complete... I'll be more than happy to post it.

Did you succeed? If yes, it would be nice if you could share the code! Thanx, varian

As of yet I haven't. I'm hoping to have it finished within the next 2 weeks. My wife gave birth to our new little girl so I've been kinda tied up!

Don't worry.... I WILL be posting the code once it's complete!

Probably not what you're looking for but...I created a php block for my Squeezebox here. Some of the code might be reusable for Shoutcast.

BTW, if you don't know what a Squeezebox is...check it out here.

here is some code that i modified for use on my brothers website. i am not sure if this will work but give it a try

Function phpblock_radio () {

// Fill in your own server information here:	
	$host = "";
	$port = "8000";
	$listenlink = '';  //make link to stream
	$fp = fsockopen("$host", $port, &$errno, &$errstr, 30); //open connection
	if(!$fp) {
		$success=2;  //se-t if no connection
	if($success!=2){ //if connection
		fputs($fp,"GET /7.html HTTP/1.0rnUser-Agent: XML Getter (Mozilla Compatible)rnrn"); //get 7.html
		while(!feof($fp)) {
			$page .= fgets($fp, 1000);
		fclose($fp); //close connection
		$page = ereg_replace(".*<body>", "", $page); //extract data
		$page = ereg_replace("</body>.*", ",", $page); //extract data
		$numbers = explode(",",$page); //extract data
		$currentlisteners=$numbers[0]; //set variable
		$connected=$numbers[1]; //set variable

		if($connected==1) //if DSP is connected
			$wordconnected="yes"; //set variable
		else //if no DSP connection
			$wordconnected="no"; //set variable
		$peaklisteners=$numbers[2]; //set variable
		$maxlisteners=$numbers[3]; //set variable
		$reportedlisteners=$numbers[4]; //set variable

	if($success!=2 && $connected==1){

// song information is splitted in artist - title: 
// This requires consistent artist & title format (no ' - ' in title/artist)
// else you can use $numbers[6] as current song info below
		$song=explode(" - ",$numbers[6]);
// strings can of course be replaced with your own bla
		$display .= "Now playing on Darkpit Radio<br>";
		$display .= "Artist: ". $song[0] . "<br>";
		$display .= "Song: ". $song[1] . "<br>";
		$display .= "[$currentlisteners/$maxlisteners users]"."<br> <a target='_new' href=' " . $listenlink ."'>[click to listen]</a> ";
	else {
		$display .= "Darkpit Radio is currently";
		$display .= "OFFLINE.";
		$display .= "Please return later.";
		$display .=":::";
          return $display;


this might work for you

I tried your php_block on my site, but not succesful..
Even though I am listening to the Radio, it states that the Radio is Offline..
Any ideas to what that could cause this?
