    I wanted to know if there is, if any, a plugin that will enable me to embed a shoutcast music link into wordpress.

    At least an html, php, or whatever other codes that will let me do that..

    I wanted to air but I don't know how to get an embed or a plugin that'll let me do that.

    You could install a "sandbox" (test site) for yourself if you don't like testing it on your live site.

    It seems to work quite well on the author's demo page,

    Yea see it's because I'm on Firefox and when I go into the site, mine or the test site you sent me, it tells me to download a plugin which (html/text) and Firefox finds "No suitable plugins."

    I'm on Firefox. It seems to work fine. The song starts playing almost instantly. I'm not sure what you're missing. It sounds like a component missing in your Firefox installation, more than an issue with the plugin, which I guess you have not tried using yet. Does it work for you in another browser? Do other shoutcast streams play for you besides that plugin's example page?

    Well I found out that I need the Windows Media Player plugin for Firefox.
