Hello, all. My issue with subject is not the usual one of getting VLC
to use a proxy for streaming. Rather, it's to find out what's causing
VLC to start an installed proxy server (Tinyproxy) every time the
"Icecast Radio Directory" is clicked on. The Icecast directory is
always obtained even though the platform is not using a proxy and
clicking on a directory entry will stream the audio from that source
without a problem.
I use Tinyproxy for those situations when I occasionally have the laptop
platform (Fedora 22) on another network. There's nothing in the VLC
preferences, "simple" or "advanced" that has been changed from the
defaults for any proxy server. So I'm mystified as to why Tinyproxy
keeps getting started (but only when the Icecast directory is queried).
Thanks for your time and comment. Sincerely,
J. B. Wood e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
