changelog: SHOUTcast Tools

This changelog is based on the following product:

  • 5 months ago Fixed In the meantime, there were higher loading times than usual when retrieving covers. We were now able to finally fix this and all integrations should open promptly.
  • 5 months ago Fixed Covers were first displayed as not present when switching between titles. The cause of this has now been fixed.
  • 5 months ago Update Covers do not change. So we gave the issue a CDN and set a cache of 365 days for the covers. Covers are then immediately available for retrieval and only have to be generated once within this period.
  • 6 months ago Fixed The special character "&" in music titles inevitably leads to errors within URL queries. The system now automatically converts it to "".
2.4.3 - 2.4.6
  • 7 months ago Update Cover recognition has been greatly improved.
  • 7 months ago Fixed Some characters cause problems with recognition. We now convert them automatically.
  • 7 months ago Update rawurlencode was also a mess. Based on urlencode, we have created our own class with the appropriate modifications.
  • 7 months ago Update Cover detection increased again by the change above.
  • 7 months ago Update Client security key recreated. (internal)
  • 7 months ago Update Let's forget version 2.3.9 - the changes have been reverted.
  • 7 months ago Update Changed "urlencode" to "rawurlencode" in cover query.
  • 7 months ago Update Small change to cover detection. Results need to be observed. In the best case, it's even better.
  • 7 months ago Update Internal optimizations at the code base.
  • 7 months ago Add The cover quality in some output areas has been improved.
  • 7 months ago Fixed Covers were erroneously given out in some places where they shouldn't appear.
  • 7 months ago Update We have improved the cover accuracy and will now see if the changes made take effect over the next few days.
2.3.5 (22&23)
  • 7 months ago Fixed Ad error in the stream boxes has been fixed.
  • 7 months ago Fixed Fixed display errors in the histories.
  • 7 months ago Fixed In the background of the system, we have been collecting information from Apple's iTunes API over the last few years and outputting it to the project. It seems they are parting ways with iTunes. All links to "" caused an enormous load time due to an unavailable domain. We have now removed Apple's API. Basically we used this mainly for the covers. We now have our own database with a little over 1 million covers.
  • 7 months ago Fixed Amazon has also changed its affiliate links. Here we have completely removed the callback pixels to Amazon.
  • 7 months ago Update The loading time of the project should now be significantly better than ever before.
  • 7 months ago Update The system currently updates embedded codes and players every 90 seconds. A few years ago there were a variety of reasons for this. By now we should be moving towards real-time updating. We lowered the update from 90 to 15 seconds.
  • 7 months ago Fixed Google's GWT, which we use in part, now also gives a 404 error and seems to have been discontinued. GWT content has been removed from the code and replaced accordingly.
  • 7 months ago Add Thanks to for reporting the problem so quickly.
  • 7 months ago Add Added ways to detect the reason for long loading times in the future.
  • 1 year ago Fixed Due to the fire, there were still errors in path specifications. It is uncertain what exactly did not work because of this. However, we do not have any reports.
  • 1 year ago Update There were very few users in address ranges which are generally blocked by us. We now have the possibility to release these users separately. A message is necessary.
  • 2 years ago Fixed Fixed a bug with player layout 002 that always displayed the player links expanded instead of closed in the initial state.
  • 2 years ago Fixed Unlike in update 2.3.0, this time the player links were not displayed if you have made your own entries. We have now rewritten the whole function and now it should fit. Thanks to for the message!
  • 2 years ago Fixed If no player links were entered, player 1,2,4 did not work.
  • 2 years ago Fixed Flashplayer has been removed from the History / Played view.
  • 2 years ago Fixed Due to changes in the last version 2.2.8 there were probably strong time delays in the code. This update tries to keep the changes but restore the old speed.
  • 2 years ago Fixed Fixed an error in the cover output, which gave a faulty not displayable image when changing the cover.
  • 2 years ago Fixed Fixed a bug with the new HTML5 players.
  • 2 years ago Update All AdBlockers were made harmless. (The SHOUTcast Tools are ad-financed. Each player on our pages contains only one really unobtrusive banner ad. It doesn't disturb anyone listening to the radio, but it helps to finance the project. If you don't like the ads please consider buying the premium option for 0,99 € cent per month).
