HTML5 Audio - How To Play Shoutcast streams


L

lukas

Hello,

I have a problem with the HTML5-Audio-Tag.
While it plays mp3 files without a problem, I cannot get it to play
shoutcast streams.

Consider this URL: http://89.149.227.111:8050

For my VLC-Player this is a music stream. However, for the browser its
a HTML-Page showing some info about the stream.

Does anyone have an idea how to get the audio into the browser?
Perhaps by opening some sort of JavaScript-Stream object?

My aim is to build a streaming html5 audio player without using Flash.

Regards
Lukas.

Probably you mean the `audio' element specified in the current HTML 5
_Working Draft_.

$ telnet 89.149.227.111 8050

Really?

Probably. But this is off-topic here.
Perhaps by opening some sort of JavaScript-Stream object?

Perhaps not.

RTFM, STFW.
