Why is it when i use VLC to listen to .977 I don't get any points? I'm using this link-
  • http://www.977music.com/tunein/web/comedy.asx
It is the same link for the Windows Media Player. I use VLC because it is  not a resource hog and I can have it running in the background while playing graphic intensive games. Is there something special i have to do? I can't use the flash player because it uses most of my ram (i usually have multiple programs running at once). Is there a way to listen to .977 that doesn't make my computer lag?

Well, forums are very inactive. But, you wont even get points if you listen .977 with Winamp.

Because those players aren't supported.  Winamp and VLC would have to give us permissions to embed code into their players, and I highly doubt that would happen.

You can earn points listening with the flash player and sone the windows media player.  That's pretty much the only way you'll be able to earn points unless by some miracle these other players allow "US" to embed our points code in them which is highly unlikely.

So for winamp your "tracking code" cant be made into a simple plugin that you can download for winamp? Sorry i dont fully understand the technology behind your "code" thats why i ask this. Winamp is highly customizable with plugins, what limitations do you hit when attemping to use winamps plugin technology?
yeah I suppose a plugin might work.  I'll look into it some more.
