Shoutcast TV via VLC on Ubuntu

Just got Shoutcast TV working on VLC on Ubuntu. It’s sort of cludgy where they have it hidden. First I searched for how to do it with no luck and found this Ubuntu forums thread where others were also confused and didn’t find out how it works. So, I figured it out and then joined the forums and told them how. Here’s how to do it:

It’s a little difficult to find, but Shoutcast support is built in. Launch VLC, then go to View and Playlist (or hit Ctrl+P).Once the Playlist window opens, go to Manage –> Services Discovery and check the boxes next to Shoutcast TV and Shoutcast. All the channels will load and you can start clicking and watching.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

C.K.
