Unhappy XMMS not displaying song titles for shoutcast streams


I can play shoutcast streams just fine with XMMS but there is one small (albeit annoying) problem:
XMMS displays the station name, but not the song title!
I listen to the same stations I used to with winamp, so I am completely sure that they broadcast song titles in the metadata stream.
I checked "use metadata in playlist" option in Options>Preferences>Options tab, but still no song titles...
What am I doing wrong?

ok, i firgured it out.
go to the left-most tab in the preferences dialog (effect plugins, on somethin similar) select the mpg123 plugin,
go to configure,
and on the second tab it has option for "allow shoutcast/icecast song tiltes" check that box,
apply your setting,
and restart xmms.


thats what i did and now it works.
