User agent not accepted for recording shoutcast audiostream via streamripper by many shoutcast stations. It says "error .. try using another user agent." Changing the user agent in settings does nothing. None of the included user agents fix this huge problem. Can this issue be fixed by including an additional user agent, e.g. "FreeAmp/2.*"? Any way to correct this severe shoutcast streamripper problem? Actually, some Xiph.org stations also have the same streamripper problem.
Please advise via email.

The manual contains advises for changing the streamripper user agent:

Going to introduce a default setting, however..
