Program Accessing Internet
December 22, 2002 12:30AM
Hi

I'm enjoying the build 205 version of CoolPlayer despite it's apparent lack of an ID3 tag editor. However, the coolplayer.exe program occasionally attempts to cross my firewall and contact IP address 224.0.0.2.

Please forgive me if this topic has already been covered, but what specific information is being shared?

Thanks!

Hi Paranoid, I cant tell you anyhing about the firewall thing but coolplayer does have an ID3 tag editor. Click on the playlist button and any files in there you can right click and edit, nice and simple.

Thanks for the tip about the ID3 tag function. I found it!

Coolplayer still occasionally tries to cross my firewall. Is there an automatic notification of updates feature? Why would this program attempt to send data?

Thanks for any thoughts.

you can be pretty sure that it isn't the program trying it.
just take a look in the source yourself.

are you trying to open an m3u file, it might have a link to a broadcast site in it
