Hi all:

A parsed This American Life playlist would be nice (with titles,
actually existing shows, duration, etc), but an interim hack that works
fine is to create a playlist containing the following....

[playlist]
File1=http://localhost:5123/RealAudio/http://www.thislife.org/ra/1.ram
Title1=#1
Length1=-1
File2=http://localhost:5123/RealAudio/http://www.thislife.org/ra/2.ram
Title2=#2
Length2=-1
File3=http://localhost:5123/RealAudio/http://www.thislife.org/ra/3.ram
Title3=#3
Length3=-1

.... and so on ...

File300=http://localhost:5123/RealAudio/http://www.thislife.org/ra/
300.ram
Title300=#300
Length300=-1
NumberOfEntries=300
Version=2

The actual number of current shows is 279, but this way you pick up new
ones as they are posted. Also, you need to have AlienBBC installed for
this to work....

Nice to meet another TAL fan.

I guess you are not running on Windows if you have RA audio streaming working.

I saw that SlimDevices says RA support is coming, is there an ETA on this.

I keep meaning to totally ditch Windows and move over to my Linux box, I guess this
may give me the impetus to do it.
