I think you are right about the software player experience, and about putting
LastFM in MythMusic. LastFM is a single reliable source and doesn't require
any discovery ("harvesting"). If MythMusic LastFM support comes available
I'll drop LastFM for MythStream.
If you want to look at what I've got so far I can mail it to you. Note that
it's in PERL, and interacts with the old LastFM API...
And yes, uitzendinggemist does work. It wouldn't be there if it didn't -
although site changes have and will affect parsers every now and then.
(note: for some reason I didn't receive your mail though the myth-dev list
subscription, only directly to my account - so I used myth-dev as CC)
