How to stream music?

Recommended Posts

Hi! I just gotten my own linden home and I'm about to decorate it but how do I stream music? I just spent about 1-2 hours trying to figure it out but everything I find I'm sturggling with. Theres this one where someone like torley? showed something but unless I did something wrong nothing is streamed into my home.

How is easy. Simply drop in a URL of a Internet Radio Station streaming using the MP3 Transmission Protocol into your Lands Music Field. Such as one of these stations:

Jazz & Blues.........: http://198.27.70.26:8094 - http://216.218.147.60:8240
Classic 50's & 60's..: http://stream3.digistream.info:8166
181.fm - Awesome 80's: http://mp3uplink.duplexfx.com:8000
The Jazz Groove......: http://thejazzgroove.com/ - http://199.180.72.2:8015
Indie Spectrum.......: http://indiespectrum.com:9000
Pretty Etherial......: http://176.9.22.6:8006
Radio Martini........: http://mitm.digistream.info:8052

Here is the how to:

World / About Land / Sound / Music URL: _______________________________

The redhead is not a requirement.

Now finding a station is another matter....

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

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. :D

To make sure that a particular Internet Radio Station URL is working, you can optionally drop the URL into the Address area of any Internet Browser. Those stations using SHOUTCast  D.N.A.S. Relay server software will display something like this:

If you're at  a club where there's a music stream you like, you can check their 'about land' and copy the music URL and paste onto your own 'about land'.

I'm talking about generally available music streams here, like After Hours or Pulse Radio.  It might be a bit dodgy if you copied and pasted a club's own home-made stream.  However if they have a home-made stream, they're presumably happy for people to listen to it wherever they might be.

I keep a notecard with a list of all my favourite music streams.  I can easily edit the list to add new stations or remove defunct ones.

They might be fine. On the other hand, streams are usualy bought (rented) on a per-listener basis. If they pay for 50 listeners, and none of those listeners ever come to the club, they might not be so happy.

Thanks for the wonderfully clear direction KarenMichelle! I've finally been able to add new stations this way, but am unable to remove broken or unwanted ones... for some reason the "-" button doesn't remove them. That's a minor worry though, and maybe this functionality has been fixed in the newer homes (I'm in a Meadowbrook).

I have a few streams from clubs I like. Sometimes you cant 'copy & paste' the link but if you write it in manually it usually works.

I'm just learning about this.  Thank you for the thread!  

Here's Beatles Radio if anyone would like it:

This is the one that is on my one of my lands.
