HTML5 Radio Station Player (Images and Media)

By Acty, February 28, 2014

This was a long term project which has been improved multiple times. It includes Multi-server Shoutcast & Icecast Stats PHP Class
to parse current playing track and its playtime. Currently the script supports Icecast & Shoutcast (Tested on Latest Versions). It is not responsive (adding responsiveness should be fairly easy).
This player also allows your visitors to customize their experience, they can choose between different streams, enable or disable auto start feature, enable or disable flash as primary player and change player background.
Its easy to set-up and add to any existing web site.

I really encourage you to check preview.
