I can't get MB to connect to any Shoutcast streams. Other streams are fine.

Any ideas?

e.g., anything from http://yp.shoutcast.com won't stream. I keep getting the BASS error.

I get the same and also the same when using winamp itself - the stations are returning 503 - service temporarily unavailable

while connecting to shoutcast is still slow and unreliable, I have been able to create a version that seems to be working

unzip and replace the existing musicbee application files

I found my favorite station, a jazz station, here:

https://www.relaxingjazz.com/

He has some streams three that I tried, but they didn't work.
e.g.,
https://www.relaxingjazz.com/rj128k.pls
https://tunein.com/radio/RelaxingJazzcom---Smooth-Jazz-s111775/
https://www.relaxingjazz.com/broadband.asx

Is there anyway I can use those in MB other than creating a new station and inputting the stream manually, like I did? I think maybe his stream is just dead.

BTW I can't find the above favorite jazz station in shoutcast anymore, unless he changed the name.

Is this a MB problem, or something else? I see there are listeners so someone is able to connect.

Thanks for the fast reply.

PS--Tried the new files. Still, most SC stations are tossing errors. Icecast is fine.

i dont see relaxing jazz as a station in the shoutcast directory but manually creating a radio station using https://www.relaxingjazz.com/rj128k.pls works fine for me

Hey Steven, thanks.

I tried your pls link and it didn't work.

https://www.relaxingjazz.com/rj128k.pls

Copied and replaced files in this directory:
C:\Program Files (x86)\MusicBee\

This is strange.

Working here with 3.4.7390 P (before the patch posted in this thread) and no issues.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.3 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

Well, something is wrong on my end then, but I have no clue how to fix it.
