xmms mp3 stream...no song titles


So when I stream mp3's say of of shoutcast.com or where ever. xmms never displays the incoming song titles like winamp does. I've checked out all the xmms plugins but have found nothing that would meet my needs. I know this is a pretty small problem but it would totally rock if some knew how to make it work. Thanks!

Try these settings:

Options -> Preferences -> Audio I/O Plugins -> MPEG Layer 1/2/3 Player -> Configure -> Streaming -> Enable SHOUT/Icecast title streaming and/or Enable Icecast Metadata UDP Channel

Yeah, thanks indeed. I had thought that this feature (showing song titles when playing streams) had been removed from XMMS at some point, and it never dawned on me to look at the MPEG plugin settings. (The prefs are quite well buried after all... and should probably be on by default.) Well, good to have it working again in any case.
