Latest restricted WACUP beta release is build #19516 (June 27th 2024) (x86 & x64 changelogs) | Latest WACUP public preview is build #19516 (June 27th 2024) (x86 only)

NOTE: Beta testers are added in a limited & subjective manner as I can only support so many people as part of the beta test program to keep it useful for my needs.

Unless I think you're going to be helpful, not all requests will be accepted but might still be later on. Remember that beta testing is to help me & the limitations currently works for my needs for this project.

Internet Radio + Podcasts not working
« on: December 22, 2022, 08:53:49 PM »
Wacup newb here.

I stumbled across this radio station on wacup:
which stopped working abruptly with the error message [RESOLVING HOSTNAME] while I can play the same on VLC or straight from my browser. Is there a way to work around this?

Also, when I try to load a podcast through the URL wacup just crashes, anyone else have this problem?

I've just tried the url with the current beta & the preview build & it appears to play ok. Am not sure why it's showing the state it is though it's handled via one of the plug-ins being re-used from 5.666 so that might be part of the issue or there's something on their side that's been set to block access via a player that reports itself to be winamp-like (have known that to happen as some stations will view it as a streamripper).

I'd need an example of the podcast feed trying to be added to see if I can replicate it crashing or not.
