As I've already mentioned we are going to modify things to have an <object> based fallback for old browser, however the javascript browser is still preferable for any browser that supports it since it offers full support for the streaming mechanism (i.e. it can play continuously forever, whereas the fallback will be constricted to a pre-generated playlist), it supports now playing and it supports scrobbling and in the near future it will support "love/ban" tracks.

Why not to do this with embed tag?
<embed src="http://stream_server_adress/stream" autostart="true" hidden="false" />
Browser is supposed to find player plugin and embed it into the site.

Embed tag probabli doesn't work with IE 8, but it may be fixed with this hack
<OBJECT nazwa_atrybutu="wartość" ...>
        <PARAM name="nazwa_parametru" value="wartość_parametru">
        <EMBED nazwa_atrybutu="wartość"...></EMBED>
(found on http://www.flashzone.pl/item/476/Flash-w-dokumencie-HTML/ )

Don't use javascript if it's possible to work without js, please

you dont need <szatox>

We can provide a stream link in the form of "librefm://globaltags/folk" but since only ZOMG supports it at the moment I'm not sure that's terribly useful for now. After chatting a bit with singpolyma I'm thinking of refactoring the stream generation code a bit so that it can generate giant playlists on demand then have an embedded <object> play that (maybe with a link to the playlist too).

Let's provide a link to the stream, at least. Maybe a link to VLC when they support libre.fm too.

If someone wants to write a Java based player they're welcome to and we can use it as a fall-back, but since most major free browsers will have <audio> tag support in their next major releases I'm not planning on spending any extra time on the issue myself.

You could file a bug report with Microsoft asking them to add support for <audio> to IE 9 if you like though.

First i have to say, great work. Nice new features.

But when i go to listen and type in reggae or rock or whatever,
i get a page with this error:

Sorry, you need a browser capable of making use of the HTML 5 <audio> tag to enjoy the streaming service via the JavaScript player.

I have the latest java on my pc, i use internet explorer 8 and i think many more people use IE8.
