Perfect Replacement for PLS Downloader
DigiApp.com partners with ISV DracullSoft and offers a completely new product called Shout Scan. Shout Scan is a clever utility to download playlists/PLS-files from the huge shoutcast.com dictionary of MP3 and AAC+ radio stations.
Shout Scan is ideal for building a local list of shoutcast stations suitable for use with the XBOX Media player (XBMP) or XBOX Media Center (XBMC). This easy-to-use tool is very solid and you get lots of features to find exactly the type of radio stations you are looking for.
“… Partnering with DracullSoft and offering their product ‘Shout Scan’ makes a good deal of sense considering that we also are working closely with Cool Media Soft and supports their product Cool Radio Recorder. The two products ‘Cool Radio Recorder’ and ‘Shout Scan’ complements each other very well”, explains Andersen.
Cool Radio Recorder version 2.3 comes with a very large directory of more than 3000 stations and the ability to record MP3, AAC+ and OGG files from sites like Icecast.org and Shoutcast.com. The new version of Cool Radio Recorder also features support for PLS files and Dynamic load balancing where the best suitable stream server is automatically detected. Shout Scan can search and download PLS and SSRN numbers from Shoutcast.com with can be used directly in Cool Media Recorder.
“…one of the key features is support for online play lists (PLS files) in Cool Radio Recorder with the new SSRN parsing with allows dynamic synchronization with PLS files online. DracullSoft ShoutScan 1.1 makes it very easy to search for Radio stations and their SSRN numbers. Cool Radio Recorder will automatically search the best server that is not overloaded. This is really a must when scheduling recordings from a popular radio station where stream servers change frequently. With dynamic load balancing Cool RR will locate an alternative server even when you are not there if it’s a scheduled recording and the stream is still recorded in 100% quality rmp3 with no re-encoding…”
