XMMS and online radio

Online radio plays well and all that with XMMS, but the problem I have is that I am not able to view any of the song info. I've resorted to using Real Player for the time being, which to view the song info I have to go through the menus and select to view the clip info, which is a pain also. I would much prefer to use XMMS, but I'd like to be able to view the artist. Anyone have any suggestions?

go into preferences, choose the MPEG Layer input plugin, click the configure button, then select the tab that says Streaming. check the two checkboxes on the bottom, "Enable Shout/Icecast title streaming," and "Enable Icecast Metadata UDP Channel."

whether you can then see the titles and artists and so on depends on the stream, but that should at least take care of shoutcast and icecast formats (which could be most places or only a few, for all i know about streaming, which is 0 ).
