I was wondering what the rules where for adding internet radio stations to the squeeze network. Can any radio station online be added or only certain ones? For the ones that can be added how do you know which url to provide the squeeze network so that it can play the station or be able to add it to the favorites. The station that I would like to add to favorites is wcgi in chicago the url I have which I know from reading the posts won't work is http://wgci.com/cc-common/streaming_new/launchpage.html
I was wondering how do i find out what the url I am supposed to provide the squeeze network to play the wcgi radio station.

You need to find the actual playlist or audio stream URL. It takes a bit of
work but you can find the URL for this stream by viewing the source of the popup
window. The URL may be dynamic so if it ever stops working you might need to go
back and get a new one.

Thanks for the help I was having trouble finding the right link for the stream. when the pop up came up it wouldn't allow me to view the source for the page. But it turns out all I had to do was right click on the media player portion of the pop up and it allowed me to view the properties of the pop up which had the url for the stream.

What happens when the provider wants a login before streaming, such as at this one:

http://www.sportstalk980.com/script/page_admin/index.php?tool=page&page=/listenlive.php&fcn=edit&id=358895&instance=0#

Is there a way to get this page onto my SqueezeBox?

I think you're out of luck on this one, unless the actual stream URL it gives you after login is not secured.
