Can someone please explain how to add the following station to Alien BBC in Squeezecenter 7.3:

http://www.nj.com/ram/wsou/wsou.rpm

This is the stream used by real player for WSOU.

thank you

With Alien installed, you should be able to add this stream to favorites and get it to play - go the the main web page, expand favorites and click the edit icon to allow you to add a new entry.

You should also be able to play it via Radiotime and add it to favorites from there.

When I try to put it into the favorites. I get the following error:

"There was an error loading the remote feed for: (Invalid XML feed)"

Can someone verify that this URL will work with alienbbc:

http://www.nj.com/ram/wsou/wsou.rpm

and how do to get it to play? I tried with radiotime presets. It plays, but it tends to drop the connection. I would rather play it straight through alienbbc.

thanks

Paste the URL into the Tune-in box and it should play.

While it is playing you can then save it to Favorites as one of the option about the Playing details. I think this should bypass the XML check you encountered.

Alternatively try adding the true URL below into favorites

You should be able to add .rpm urls to favorites - the issue with this site is that it does not set the content type for the rpm file correctly so squeezecenter thinks it is a non audio file.

Hopefully the work around which Bryan posted works ok for you?
