Shoutcast, the mother of all streaming servers and services has an API that’s been around for awhile. Getting on the Shoutcast directory now requires jumping through some hoops. Shoutcast 1 remains a bulletproof server but has some browsers, especially mobile browsers, shutting down the stream. Shoutcast 2 is privately owned and seems they are not maintaining the service or have no vision for it’s future. That being said..here is the Shoutcast API if you want to pull in Shoutcast streams to your website or APP.
