This french webradio can be heard on my PC using Winamp or Windows Media Player:

mms://stream.tv-radio.com/nouvellescene-128k/.WMA

But, when I try to connect to it from my SqueezeBox I get the Error 404 !...

Why ?

Any solution ?

I really want to hear this webradio in my dining room...

Thanks a lot. (Please, be clear, I'm a newbie and I speak better french than english... ;-)

There's something wrong with the above address: the .wma imho must be in
lower case, and there should be a name before the .wma.

Huh ? If so, why does this URL work with Winamp and Windows Media Player ?

Note, I noticed the following URL (without the /.WMA suffix) works fine as well on WMP:

mms://stream.tv-radio.com/nouvellescene-128k

Of course, the Error 404 is raised as well on the SB...

This webradio can be heard in your html browser on the following link (if this may help):

http://nouvellescene.europe2rock.fr/

Thanks for any help.

SlimServer only plays http streams. If the stream's host only supports
mms:// then it won't play. You best ask the station whether they support
the http protocol or not.

I think there is something else happening. I can't get the URL to play with mplayer either which is usually very good and it supports mms.

It needs some more investigation on a Windows PC.

Really ?

Here it works fine on Windows mplayer !

I only got problems with the SB...

Maybe should I try with the regular http URL of this web radio ?

I'll try tonight, I'm at the office right now...

Thanks again.

Can you confirm that it works with a Windows version of mplayer (from www.mplayerhq.hu) or Microsoft Windows Media Player ?

When I type the given mms:// URL in my Firefox browser (at home), the Microsoft Windows Media Player (v 10) is launched and the webradio can be heard.

Here (at my office) it doesn't work, but I think it is only because the company's proxy does not allow this kind of stream to be accessed...

The station now works with mplayer - so previous problem must have been network related.

So it looks (as Michael suggested) like the station does not support http (i.e. no port 80) and that is stopping squeezebox.
