Shoutcast streams play in Web window instead of Player
Posted by Russell Samuels on Feb 8, 2011
On some machines, clicking 'Tune-in' on a Shoutcast channel, fails to open the channel in
MediaMonkey's player and instead it just launches within a browser window. This occurs on:
a) machines that have cookies disabled
b) machines that have a cookie indicating a preference for the browser-based player

In both of the above cases, the web site fails to provide a PLS/M3U file to open in MediaMonkey.

The solution is to:
a) re-enable cookies (e.g. via Browser or AntiVirus settings)
b) delete the PLAYSELECT cookie for shoutcast.com (via Internet Explorer)

Additionally try to use steps as shown at
