I've scanned the lists but not seen any clear solution to this.

I would very much like to be able to listen to streamed real audio
broadcasts, through my wonderful slimp3. There appears to be a solution
for a linux platform, but it is out of date with the latest server
software, and I have to use windows xp.

Any help would be appreciated.

Streaming real audioUse shoutcast and winamp (works for NT and XP) See post on 1/12/2004 at 1:40PM from Tom Wilson. I'm using it right now at 192 kbps streaming some live audio broadcasts from my dishnetwork feed to winamp and windows media player machines.

Similar request here. I love this station:

http://www.soul24-7.com

They stream in WMA 9. I was considering a hack using Total Recorder to
grab the audio from the sound card and save as a series of WAV files (you
can tell the latest version to cut a new file every so often and save as
either WAV or MP3) which I would then -- somehow -- send in sequence to
the Squeezebox and then delete. This is a tremendous hack, I know, but it
seemed workable. Somehow. I figured, the server is written in perl, I'm
fine writing perl code, so somehow I could hack it all together.

I've also read here today about possibly using either Shoutcast or
Simplecast. I'm happy to use the free Shoutcast and OK with paying the
relatively low price for Simplecast, but how precisely one would go about
hooking all these pieces together -- well, if anyone has actually done
this stuff, a quick overview would be definitely be appreciated.

MessagePlease define "real audio". I thought you meant an analog broadcast of a radio signal. You can set the winamp plugin to stream whatever winamp is playing or whatever is coming in from your sound card input.

.... <sorry for the diverse messages, but I am really having trouble understanding the suggestion to use shoutcast/winamp> .. from what I gather Winamp does not support realaudio, and therefore cannot transfer it to a shoutcast server, so I don't see how this combination will help. Have I got this wrong?

He means the streaming format RealAudio (http://www.real.com). Offhand, I
don't recall a command-line codec that decodes RealAudio.
