Hi -- we wish to access via Internet Radio a Clear Channel station which requires a User Name [email address] and Password to access the feed.

Can anyone give me an example of how to write the .PLS file which pass the User Name and Password.

The site generates a cookie which eliminates the need to reauthenticate -- should the PLS file include this ?

Any thoughts would be appreicated.

If this is a standard HTTP stream, then you should be able to encode
in the URL in the playlist:

http://user:password@servername:port/path.mp3

Note: This places your user/password information in the clear in the
playlist.

Thanks Dean.

Still having trouble sorting this out.

The station is WLTW Lite FM New York.

http://www.1067litefm.com/main.html

They appear to force the use of WinPlayer. This is the javascript link used to connect is below. As far as I can figure we are user =8851 picked up from our cookie.

javascript:openwin();function openwin(){PlayerWin=window.open("http://go.eonstreams.com?u=8851","PlayerWin","width=552,height=325,resizable=0,top=0,left=0");}


Any way of editing this to change to use the SqueezeBox2 ?

I understand how to connect using normal URL type stuff but this is tricky . . . Murray

Ah, this looks like a Windows Media embedded player thingy. This is
not a standard HTTP stream, I don't know how password protection
works here.

I'd get in touch with them and ask for a regular URL so you can
listen to the feed directly on Squeezebox.
