I had this problem before... My local radio station uses WMP to broadcast over the net.

I got it running in Windows Media Player, and then went to the properties, and grabbed the Location.

Then go to File > Add To Library > Add URL...

Put the Location in there, and then it is added to your library.

What you need to do is this.

Go to File > Open URL...

Enter http://ms2.capitalinteractive.co.uk/century_1054

This will then connect to the file and buffer it.

Then, go to your library and then Other media to check if it has been added.

If not, go to File > Add to Library > Add currently playing item

That should get it into your library!

Yes.

As long as you can find out the address of the stream, then its the same process.

found the address of the stream but it's asking for codec's is that because they play them on real player.

Yeah, you'd ideally have to play it in Realplayer if thats the only stream they use.

Mine actually uses Real and Windows Media, so i prefer to stay with Windows Media
