But, thanks. That pls file contains IP's might be good on other broadcast sites than iTunes source.
iTunes doesn't always give machine numbers. It doesn't give them for its own channels, but if I find them on shoutcast, and have IE launch iTunes playing, it will show the numbers (get info dialogue's edit url... button).
You can copy the long url and open stream or paste in IE to open stream and you'll get an editable url that might be shorter, but not a number.
Is there unix program to get IP like readme says winamp and xmms?
