Hi Everyone,

Kind of a strange question but I'm curious if you are conntected to SqueezeNetwork does it start or connect to the URL of a radio station? In other words, does the squeezebox connect direct to the URL or does the Squeezenetwork do that an then redirect the stream?

The reason I ask I would like to list a series of radio stream URL's that my ISP has, and that they don't meter (or count to my monthly download quota). If the stream comes from SqueezeNetwork then it probably will be counted but if the SqueezeBox connects then it won't be counted.

Thanks in advance everyone.

SqueezeNetwork does an initial connect to the URL to verify it's an audio
type we can play (mp3, wma), and then tells the Squeezebox to connect.

There is no actual streaming done by the Squeezenetwork, so I think you'll be ok.
