[IMPLEMENTED] v0.9.9.1430: Playtrack Suggestion: Add User Agent
« on: February 08, 2017, 09:18:47 PM »
Suggestion concerning the Playtrack Post operation. What about adding a User Agent related to Winamp or Wacup. Right now it's blank.

Most of my sites treat blank user agents as bad bots.  I'll see what the other one used. Will get back to you.

The other one used: Agent: NowPlaying/3.9.4.0

Just a thought.

Totally agree and will get something done for the next build as I also need to improve what I'm sending with the podcast feed retrieval.

The next build will use the following formal:

WACUP/0.9.9.1443 (Winamp/5.6.6.3516)


It didn't seem worth the need to include other information like the browsers do with their user agent strings (hope that's ok).
