View Full Version : Why won't this URL work?
Can anybody help me to get this URL to work in SlimServer:
That playlist contains no actual audio streams.
There are a couple of signs on their sites (peaceoutradio and loudcity) to suggest that this is a slightly tricky one ... but try this - it worked for me - but I did play it first on my PC which might have made things work for a while.
"We broadcast is aac+ and mp3pro.
Ominous warnings there.
Here is their page on Loudcity:
Here is the real URL that it generated for the pls - note - the cache_bust piece might need to be varied - but if it works then this is a better URL to use since it does generate the .pls that contains the (potentially variable) link above.
... later ...
I have had a look on the LoudCity site - and their contract with the broadcasters that use them does prohibit promoting direct connections without a browser showing the LoudCity info.
I have posted a question on the LoudCity forum asking for clarification for non-browser-based listeners ... because the stream that I had running on the Squeezebox stopped after a few minutes and would not restart ... so perhaps they block it if the browser is not left open.
I add the URL :
And works fine. The SB says some error of sorts, but it still plays. Something about prefetching ?
