I hope you like the new Shoutcast V2 API functionality and animated Ringhio notifications in the latest TuneNet from Enhancer Software v1.3

I have to admit to not trying the revised Internet Radio functionality yet... But from a quick look, although it works, I'm not sure I'll personally find it useful (probably due to how the Search function works) :

(EDIT: CORRECTIONS MADE BELOW #2)

If I search for "J-Pop" I only get 3 results. And even if I change it to search the top 500 "International" stations, I only get 4 results. BUT if I search on the shoutcast.com website, then I get 33 results!

I presume this is because TuneNet downloads the top 500 stations (which won't contain obscure stations!), and only after that filter the results. So either it needs to request more stations (if the search finds too few matches), or it needs to send the search request to the server (but I don't know if this is possible using the API).

My use case may be obscure, so I do not necessarily expect anything to be done about this (I just report it & let you decide whether it's worth doing or not).


(EDIT: UPDATED REPLY BELOW)

I'm normally running the original Ringhio server (for beta-testing OS4), but I did install your new version in a separate folder, so I just tested it out... Yes, it is rather nice having an animated notification

I might have to consider having this running by default! (Just needs me to change my WbStartup prefs.)
