Hello Everyone,

Just noticed that GK is once again added to a station directory
Me Happy ?
Well yes, BUT, people who wanna use the app has to pay $29.95
Its one of the many providers of media players who makes it possible to trace and record MP3 content ...
Their disclaimer tells :

program is not meant for those who intend on breaking copyright laws
I'm maybe a little old fashion and a believer of doing "good" things to others, however once again someone who earns money while We are doing all the work.

Does they use Our PayPal link to say thanks ? :no:

I am against it, if someone makes money out of the work put in.

The best thing to do, is permanently turn the song title's off- if they like the station they will listen anyway!

If they only listen to rip- to hell with 'em!

If they need the song title they can easily get in touch and ask, if it is that important to them that is!
So, no problem!

Rather than turning the song titles off, you could just do something like add a space or dash at the end of the title and then take it away after a few seconds. That would break the ripped MP3s up into almost useless chunks.

how u do that mixstream ?

Due to licensing guidelines can't turn off titles.. but .. as mentioned by Mixstream, can add something to them to discourage ripping.

Could it be possible to do this in SAM as following ?
The command in SAM is $combine$
(see : encoder > config > server details > $combine$)
In fact as user you can add text behind this command ... or you can delete it and write an own text (ex: stationname)
Is the following a solution ?
|$combine$| ... so : to add | in front and/or behind the command
To my knowledge it works, check my listen link and see your display

a space or dash at the end of the title and then ....
Don't know if this affects streamrippers ...
