Do you listen to internet radio?

Do you appreciate artists who release works in CC licensing?

Do you like an eclectic mix of music?

hackers.town:2600

@TheGibson That address won't load in Firefox, only Chrome. "Secure Connection Failed". Probably due to https everywhere plugin.

hackers.town:2600/listen.pls crashes all my media players except WinAmp, but the stream times out there.

@Sci Try taking the /listen.pls off the end @thegibson

@K @Sci

probably never going to work over web... gotta point a streaming client at it.

@thegibson @Sci Yeah but "crashes all my media players", so I thought "media players".

@K @thegibson @Sci

Works from the command line for me:

mpv hackers.town:2600

Should work with mplayer and VLC too.

@K The PLS playlist file is what the desktop players load though, or the URL within it. Or rather, that's been my expectation for shoutcast streams.

@Sci @TheGibson can confirm. works in Firefox without Https Everywhere.

@TheGibson for some hsts reason i can't access it since clicking on hackers.town

@CobaltVelvet

It is not webhosted...

it must have a streaming player pointed at it.

@TheGibson and the web ui lets you download a fancy .pls for your player also

@CobaltVelvet

I know.. and I can make excuses, but the truth is... haven't had a lot of time to work on it...

consider it a beta.

@CobaltVelvet

also, I wanted to PAT the port for security... and in using 2600, and well, other standard web ports are already in use, and only one external IP... soooo...

I mean.. there are constraints. :)

@thegibson When do we get jokey advertising spots for Hacker Radio? I can't wait to hear the jingle and hear someone tell me I'm listening to a CyberCast

@thegibson Valid no worries my dude take your time. I mostly jest but also would love to do an ad on the radio

@g0at record something weird but fitting... not too vulgar, and send it in .mp3 format.

@thegibson I added it to radio-browser.org. Hopefully it doesn't trigger an overload.

@TheGibson I love it - and I definitely needed something to brighten up a really gray afternoon.
