streaming radio into SL

Question

  • 0

When I last checked Radionomy, it did not offer you the ability to play its content using your own media player. This prevents you from obtaining the ShoutCast/IceCast stream information [IP Address + port] that the FMOD Module in the viewer prefers.

Take a look at www.shoutcast.com to id stations that are playing content you want to hear.

Then Lets say you want Nature Sounds...

Go to

http://www.shoutcast.com/radio/Nature

Pick any MP3** stream link and right-mouse click on it. Select the Save target as... ????.pls to your desktop. Open it with any text editor. Inside you will see something like the following:

[playlist] numberofentries=1 File1=http://88.80.200.195:8000 Title1=(#1 - 13/80) stream.silent.li organic relax radio: nature sounds Length1=-1 Version=2

The Land URLs is the http://....at File=1

In this example http://88.80.200.195:8000

So in this case do: World / About Land / Sound / and set the Music URL: to http://88.80.200.195:8000

Good Listening to you!



P.S. ** It's important that you pick a station broadcasting streaming MP3 because the FMOD service that comes with SL only recognizes and supports this method.

Regarding Radionomy,

I went to http://www.radionomy.com/en/radio/swellradio/index that you suggested. Using the 'Listen to this station in your media player' option I was able to capture the .m3u stream information as a file. Editing this file I saw the URL http://streaming.radionomy.com/SwellRadio in it 5 times.

This suggests that the stream is a fixed content loop that will repeat 5 times before stopping.

So in this case I set: World / About Land / Sound / and set the Music URL: to "http://streaming.radionomy.com/SwellRadio"  on my parcel and it worked! I do not know if the loop will auto repeat.

Enjoy!

Thank you for a prompt reply. But I am making my own playlist. I came across a place in SL where they were streaming from Radionomy. I will try to ask them.
