Multiple IP's connection then immediately disconnect

It has become really bad recently. Lots of different IP's from USA to Europe. Will connect, disconnect within 1-6 seconds. Then do it again hundreds of times over the day. I've been banning lots of IP's hoping it was just a small grouping, but its not. I have banned over 50 IP's and more just come.

What is the cause of this? I thought maybe it was because I run an aac+ stream and its an incompatible player try to connect. But it happens hundreds of times, makes no sense. Here is what I see:

I do have legit listeners that stop by, so I know its not an issue with the server or switch.

I got these too, always NSplayer. It's some sort of radio checker, looking for what is played where. Possibly user searches being checked. It's annoying, yes, but nothing to worry about unless your connection can't take the little more load.

NSPlayer is Windows Media Player, and if your stream is AACPlus, it is that Windows Media Player doesn't support AACPlus. But it sure will try, and try, and try...

I am willing to bet money that it only looks like WMP. There are a couple of threads about it in the SC discussion forum. ("one second connections" or "1 second connections" comes to mind) "NSPlayer" might be an easier way to find them.

If you take your stream off the YP they will go away in a couple of days.

Your mileage may vary!

Some things like that are stream rippers - they only need to listen to a few seconds of the record and then it somehow records the whole song - if I live to be the total age of the living human population, I will never work it out - but, if you download a stream ripper to your computer, you can type in certain artistes or groups, the software will somehow monitor all Shoutcast stations that are likely to be playing that artiste.

If you tell it to record anything by, for instance, The Eagles, it will monitor stations it would expect to be playing Eagles records - the moment you put Lyin' Eyes, Take It Easy or Hotel California on - it doesn't need to pick it up from the beginning - it only listens to a few seconds of the song and the complete song is there on your computer - unlike with the old tape recorders, where you had to have the mic right in front of the radio and turn the radio up loud, so that a reasonable quality recording could be made and you could drown out the noise of passing vehicles - difficult, if you live on a main road - or dad saying "Turn that down" or other family members saying you were wanted for something - in theory, if you left your computer on for an hour, you could gather enough material for a lengthy compilation.

It's something we don't discuss on Shoutcast - the above is the reason why we don't discuss it on Shoutcast!
