So, I would really love to be able to stream archived audio from KEXP. Specifically John in the morning. I can't stream at work so archives are the only way. But, they have it set up so that when you start one of these archives, it starts up it's own player. Is there a way that I can stream this thru my squeezebox3?

here is a link to the archive page if it helps:
http://kexp.org/streamarchive/archive_player.asp

any help would be greatly appreciated!

Well, you can open the player pop-up and get the stream via right-click Properties.

Such a stream looks like:

which gets translated into:

okay, so i tried this and I can't get it to work. The stream appears to be a wma stream. I got it to work in windows media player, but not in winamp. In winamp it says it has an error syncing.

and i'm not exactly sure what you meant by "translates into". not sure if understanding that would help me or not, but i'm curious.
thanks.

No idea why winamp doesn't work - you'd have to ask in their forums.

I meant that when you add the first link i posted into WMP, you can then do a properties on the URL that is playing. You will see that it is the second link I posted (the mms) that is the actual streaming URL.
