I'm a newbie. Just bought and installed my first SB Radio today. Everything went flawlessly - well done!
Now I am on the site MySqueezeBox.com, and I want to add a bunch of favorites. My problem is that I cannot figure out what the stream URL is that the SB requires.
For example, if I go to http://www.accuradio.com/finder/accuradio/jazz/ from my PC, I can click on a station and it will pop up a player window and just start to play. But as far as I can tell, the SB requires some sort of stream URL. How can I discover, for example, the stream URLs at accuradio.com?

Newb: How to find the stream URL for Internet radio?
2010-12-18, 18:54 #2
From your Radio or the MySqueezeBox.com web UI install the AccuRadio App, then go to Radio > My Apps > AccuRadio
If usung the MySqueezeBox.com web UI use Remote Control > AccuRadio then just click on the *heart icon* to add that stream to your Favorites.
From the Radio you cannot add a station to Favorites from the Now Playing screen, you must hover over the station name within the menu's then press the "+" button (or press & hold the big knob), Save to Favorites will be offered.

Thanks. I stumbled upon that after I posted. But not all the streams from the web page are listed - so I am still curious about my original question - how do you find the stream of something with a player embedded in the page?
For example the Swingin' Pop Standards station isn't found within the app. Is there a way to find the stream?
Also there is a great station at AcousticAlternative.com where I cannot figure out the stream? IS there an app that helps you find the stream?
Thanks a lot for your help.

AccuRadio apparently only wants certain stations to be usable from their embedded web player, as Mnyb suggests. If they want you to easily grab the URL for playback away from their web site and playable among many different devices (like a SB player) they will make it very simple to do so. Example: go to www.1.fm, notice how they make the same stream available in multiple URL formats like WinAmp (MP3) and WMP (WMA). Just click on any of those selections, this launches whichever media player you have chosen to play that format, now you can cut & paste that URL anywhere you wish, like in your MySB > Favorites.
You could email AccuRadio and ask for a direct stream URL, sometimes the stream provider cooperates, sometimes not.
There are other methods which can be hit & miss and require some detective work. Like using a URL sniffer to track all internet traffic on your computer. When you play from an embedded web player this may sniff out a playback URL you can cut & paste into another player, but sometimes not.

It seems accuradio is not working anymore. Not for me.
If my squeezebox is connected to my squeezebox server it gets a server error 500.
Also with mysqueezebox.com it is not working. In the remote application when i click on accuradio then it seems mysqueezebox.com is trying to load the station list but comes back in the main menu where it was. No station list.
(other radio services do work)
