Wolfgang's Vault is a site which owns thousands of concert recordings from Bill Graham's collection. There's a 128 kbps stream "Vault Radio" available through a Flash player, but I'm having trouble finding the actual URL.

Anybody want to give it a try? This is a killer "station" with stuff available nowhere else.

Wow, what a cool site! I am just (barely) young enough to have never been to the Fillmore(s), and just old enough to understand and appreciate the significance of Bill Graham and the Fillmore.

Nosing around in firefox, I was able to come up with the url http://www.wolfgangsvault.com/player/WVplayer01url.htm

I tried playing this through WMP (I don't have access to my Squeezebox at the moment) and got an error message about "one or more codecs cannot be found" ... which makes me think this is the right URL ... I'm not sure what will happen if you use this URL in SlimServer, but it is worth a shot.

Thanks for the great link!

Neat site. Thanks.

They've done a better than average job of hiding their URLs.

I think a port tracer would still yield the other end of the connection, but I have to go to work now. I'll try to look at it on the weekend (but it is Valentine's Day weekend, so my attention may be elsewhere ... :-) .

Any ideas why this isn't working for me? Flash Player (which works fine for Pandora) says "now playing", but no sound. I'm stumped.
Furthermore, I know the Flash Player is working, because the visuals are playing.....

two things to try:

--update Flash to the latest version

--make sure Flash is sending audio output to the correct system device

From the HTTP headers, a file named:

http://www.wolfgangsvault.com/Player/WVplayer-tuner.txt

is downloaded. In that file, the server is :

http://216.235.81.103:15324

Enter that into your Radio Tune-in and listen away. The server may change depending upon your poximity to the streaming source, so try retrieving the text file first and replace the streaming URL with the one you get.
