I am building a wordpress website for a live FM radio station. I got shoutcast running on the dedicated VPS and the station uses OtsAV DJ Pro for their source.
The part I would like some tips on is integrating the player and playlist, etc. into the wordpress website. I did a lot of research online but most articles are outdated so any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
When I go to my example2.php page I get:
"Webradio Sound Technology stream!
Sorry, but there was an error occurent, trying to connect to the Server.
In hope it helps, here an error message:
Error: Connection refused (111)
I am really sorry about it!"
Besides that I think I only need a page named "Song History" in wordpress and display like the last 20 or so songs that have been automatically updated.
As far as requests go I will just make an email/phone contact page for the live radio station for people to request songs as no songs will be uploaded to the server, it's all live.
And lastly should I keep the embedded shoutcast player or use a different one for my wordpress website?
I noticed people say it's a good practice to also offer listeners a choice to use their own computers default audio player but when I download the .pls file and try to open it windows media player says it cant recognize or play it.
So a little help with the above questions would really help me out. Thank you.
