Yea. Sorry. That's the only way I know.

According to my xmms "playlist save" dialog box, those two files are the
recognized file types.

Well, Shoutcast provides the means for the broadcast but I'd think the
broadcaster is still responsible for paying that money.  Most broadcasters
probably don't, though.  The record companies probably look away because
Shoutcast is run by AOL Time Warner (which probably owns more records sold
in the U.S. than any other company if you count all of its subsidiaries.)
I could see some angry record company suing Shoutcast and getting squashed
or bought out by AOL Time Warner.  Just a thought.
