[MPlayer-users] How to play shoutcast / icecast title streams ?

Has anybody an idea how to enable "SHOUT/Icecast title streaming" with 
mplayer? When trying to listen to radio stations like di.fm, I always 
get an 404 error: requested stream not found.

This error only occured recently, since shoutcast.com (which relays 
those MP3 streams) started broadcasting with activated title streaming.

However, xmms/xine/amarok connect without problems. Nevertheless they 
are unuseable for my purposes. My media client needs an command line 
player as mplayer is.

I would really appreciate if anyone could help me, because I've tried on 
this for a long time now, without getting any further.

Thanks in advance.
