Shoutcast Player

Overview

The software installer includes 4 files and is usually about 1.04 MB (1,087,452 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows Vista (SP2). While about 64% of users of Shoutcast Player come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and Belgium.
