I don't know why I have such a difficult time sleuthing out the correct URL to send to my Squeezebox! I'd like to add this station to my Favorites:

http://www.radiosvizzeraclassica.ch/en/playlist

A little help?

Did you try the various formats that are linked in the right hand side column? If so, what happened?

Hi, yes I did try the links to the various formats. SN didn't complain about them but my SB reported "Error no items found in playlist"

I tried the Win Media and the the MP3 links and none worked.

Example of link tried: MP3 link is: http://www.radiosvizzeraclassica.ch/live/it/mp3.asx

SB does not like it. I do not know why. I am getting these little lines of vexation between my eyebrows. I am not an attractive man to start with, and this is not helping.

Thank you for your help!

That's odd. Here's the content of that file:
http://stream-1.ssatr.ch:80/rsc-it/mp3
http://stream-2.ssatr.ch:80/rsc-it/mp3
http://stream-3.ssatr.ch:80/rsc-it/mp3
http://stream-4.ssatr.ch:80/rsc-it/mp3
http://stream-5.ssatr.ch:80/rsc-it/mp3
http://stream-10.ssatr.ch:80/rsc-it/mp3
http://stream-11.ssatr.ch:80/rsc-it/mp3

If I pick one of these streams, it starts playing.

... and so it does for me, too. Would it be an imposition for me to ask you how the heck you found those URLs?

The urls you found (those on the right hand side) are pointing to playlists. You can download these playlists and open them in a text editor (or the browser directly). You'd then see the list of urls I've posted.

Okay, thank you. How do I download the playlists for opening in a text editor/viewer? Everything I try with those urls simply opens a player application.

Right click the link and say "Save to folder" or something.

Oh ho. I see. In Firefox I used "Save Link As". Works as advertised. Thank you for your help!

I presume that the problem for SC is that the format of the "asx" is not what was expected.
An ASX is usually more than a simple list of URLs.
