is there any way to duplicate what install on demand does (protection wise), done in java, im pretty fluent with servlets and such.

i just dont want people to be able to download the mp3's to their harddrives,, or just make it a little harder to do so ..

You can use .m3u All you need to do is either upload the .mp3s to your webserver or use the on-demand part of the DNAS. After that is done then you will need to edit the .m3u so the paths are correct (i.e. http://whereeverthefilesare.com/song.mp3). Once you get the paths correct upload that to a webserver (will not work if you try to use the content dir). You should just be able to call that playlist and the files will stream.
You may also want to check out the following article: http://www.shoutclub.com/articles/view.php3?num=15
It also deals with MIME types if that causes you problems on your webserver.

I used your advice and I tried to do the same thing but for me it does not work no matter what the links in the m3u playlists are.

The problem is that the mp3 files are not visible by the webserver and are only present throught the On-demand feature. So, in order for the Shoutcast server to serve the files, they have to end in .pls instead of .mp3.

If I change the extensions of the files within the playlists to be .pls and not .mp3, then WinAmp (in my case, XMMS) does not recognize the file as a valid file (even if I select "Recognize the files by content and not by extension" option).

Given that all my mp3 files are in /shoutcast/content/... what should the content of the m3u playlist files be?

Thanx

m3u/pls with multiple files can only be served ondemand via a webserver, not a DNAS.

Check out the Sticky post titled:
SHOUTcast: Important Info & Answers to FAQs. READ ME!

Scroll down a bit and look for the section titled:

Thanx for the reply!!! I read through the article and as far as I can understand them, the only way that it is possible to do this is if I upload all the mp3s to the webserver and then inlclude them into the playlist.

If that is true what is the reply from Tom (from 10-29-2001, a few replies up) talking about? It sais that it could be done if I "... use the on-demand part of the DNAS."

Thanx

Notice the date. Things may have changed.

Right now ondemand with a DNAS is one file at a time.
