View Full Version : Trouble listening to some NPR stations

I am running LMS 7.9.0. I'm using two players, an original SLIMP3 and a Duet. When listening to NPR radio stations that play short introduction before the real-time streaming starts, all I get is the introduction, and then the player stops like it is done. Specifically, this is happening on WUWM 89.7 in Milwaukee, WI.

Any ideas? I installed LAME.EXE, and LMS says it sees it. But I'm not sure that had anything to do with the problem. Not sure how to proceed in diagnosing this.

What URLS are you using ?
What OS does LMS run on ?

Sorry, those are obvious questions I should have covered.

Is the URL, I found it via the search built into the LMS.

I'm running the LMS on Windows XP with SP3.

I think the wvum URL you gave is just broken as it doesn't play in VLC or mplayer for me.

The URL produces two playlist


http://www.publicbroadcasting.net/wuwm/ppr/wuwm.pls
http://www.publicbroadcasting.net/wuwm/ppr/wuwm_24.pls


and each play list has two URLs - the announcement and the actual stream.


[playlist]
NumberOfEntries=2
File1=http://stream.publicbroadcasting.net/production/mp3/wuwm/local-wuwm-1030932.mp3
Title1=WUWM Public Radio Intro
Length1=17
File2=http://pubint.ic.llnwd.net/stream/pubint_wuwm
Title2=WUWM Public Radio Stream
Length2=-1
Version=2


But the Public stream URL does not play for me - perhaps it only broadcast for a few hours a day.
