As a programmer, I listen to a lot of techno music. Recently, I began wondering if it’d be possible to parse the data from the Shoutcast streams using PHP just like Winamp or Rythmbox. So far, I haven’t been very successful. For now, I’m going to dump what code I have in attempt to chronicle where I’m at with this project as well as put the word out to there and see if anyone can help me out.

Recently, I was working on a side-project that involved allowing the user to press play and listen to a sample track from a list of tracks on their iPhone. While this functionality works great when the user is on WiFi, the delay between pressing ‘Play’ and hearing the song on a 3G connection makes the application feel sluggish and non-responsive. My first idea was to add an event listener to the ‘play’ event (or something similar) and show / hide some sort of loading message when the user selects ‘play’. Unfortunately, the Sencha Touch API doesn’t support any such event. However, there is a way around this.
