Thanks for the info. I did exactly that, however
entering the URL in the stream only gave me a
message of "Reading streamä" in an "Opening URL"
window. Maintaining this for roughly 30 seconds
and then just stopped with no music playing. The
web browser shows the song I selected as playing,
but as I mentioned before it doesn't appear that
it plays, or if it does, it repeats it, even
though it is not set to do so.

Any thoughts why?
