    Can EP Player play streams like ShoutCast?
    Yes, although there are some things to know about playing streams.
    Flash Player does not support playing streams without the use of expensive streaming servers like Flash Media Server. It will just load the stream like it is a never ending MP3 file.
    This causes the player to build up memory usage as long as the stream plays.

    To prevent it from taking up too much memory we added a the 'maxmemory' parameter as workaround.
    Here you can specify the maximum amount of memory EP Player may use before it should refresh the stream and clear the memory.
    This normally results in a very short hiccup in the audio stream.


    How can I use the Buy button?
    The idea of the js button is that you can call a Javascript function in the HTML page.
    This way you can connect the button to your shopping system or do anything you like in the function.
    For example in your playlist.xml:

    <jsbutton>onButtonClick('track1')</jsbutton>

    ... and in your html page:

    <script>
    function onButtonClick(track) {
    alert(track);
    }
    </script>
