Title: Major DLBN Upgrade!!!
Post by: Shawn on January 01, 2009, 02:52:30 am
Hello all,

Another year has come and gone and all of us here at the station thank you for all your support and look forward to continuing to bring you all the very best in proggy goodness!  To that end, I'm happy to announce that after many years, we're now finally in the position to fulfil an age old request - to broadcast in mp3!!!  That's right, no more OGG!

The station is now broadcasting in 160kbps mp3 form which will mean any player under any operating system should be able to play our content without any installation needed!  You'll also be able to enjoy the tunes from any portable player - or live with your player has wireless access such as the iphone.  We're also converting all our show archives to mp3 so that it will be easier than ever to play our content.  As the weeks go on we will be offering RSS feeds of every show on DLBN so that your favourite show can be automatically delivered right to your computer as soon as it's posted!

Also, we've given our website a complete overhaul!  It's been redesigned with a much sleeker look which will enable you to find exactly what you're looking for with much greater ease.   Have a browse around!

Many thanks to Rene Young, Alistair Henry, and Shawn Kirkpatrick for the huge amount of time and effort dedicated to seeing these two long awaited upgrades finally realized.

We hope you enjoy the new enhancements and we look forward to continuing to provide you with your much needed prog fix in 2009!

Cheers,

Shawn

I'm listening to the stream right now and Winamp does not show any song info. My fault?

Nope!  This will happen for the autofeed only and it's an issue we're working on - I'll let ya know when it's resolved.

Cheers,

How is the progress coming on creating RSS feeds for all of the shows?  I currently subscribe to most of the shows that have them, and would add a few more if they were available.  Thanks!

Coming along - we've begin the server side conversion process and hope to have most shows done soon.
