    I stream music online by embedding the stream (.pls extension) on my website
    using Windows Media Player. This is the code that I use:
    <embed
    allowScriptAccess="never"
    allowNetworking="internal"
    enableJavaScript="false"
    showTracker="false"
    showStatusBar="true"
    autoStart="false"
    type="application/x-mplayer2"
    src="http://72.13.81.34/2531/listen.pls" name="MediaPlayer"
    width="350"
    height="50">
    </embed>

    Now someone wants to be able to see the song title and artist with each song
    that is played through the stream. I know that this could easily be done if
    it was just a playlist of individual mp3 files but it's not. It's a
    stream/shoutcast .pls file and I'mstarting to think that it's impossible
    since I can't find anything on this online. The streaming host isn't much
    help either.
