I have been trying to stream some of Jazz FM's audio on demand on my Transporter, but without success.
Ken Rayner from Jazz FM tells me that they use Wowza Media Server and the audio itself is standard Nero encoded AAC wrapped in the standard RTSP headers.
He gave me the following link to try:
rtsp://listen.onmyradio.net:1935/JAZZFM/MP3:jazzfm_wworld.mp3

I thought they were using Real Media, but he tells me they are not using Real Media.

I have also tryed this link:
rtsp://listen.onmyradio.net:1935/JAZZFM/MP4:jazzfm_cuttingedge.m4a
but this does not work either.

I think rtsp *is* Real Media format, no? It wants to launch my Real Player when I try to access your URL.

The SB players support http streaming and some mms format streaming.

Can you confirm how many listen again streams they have? I will try to take a look, but want to get a view of where what streams exist and where you get them from?

Ken Rayner has sent me the following link to test. But I cannot get my Transporter to play audio using this link.
rtsp://listen.onmyradio.net:1935/JAZZFM/_definst_/MP3:jazzfm_latelounge.mp3

I've just received the following e-mail from Ken Rayner an engineer at Jazz FM:

RTSP shouldn't really be the issue. It's simply another way of "wrapping" the file info and any internet-connected device should be able to read it.

The only http URLs I have are for iOS and Microsoft Silverlight. Everything else is rtmp (for Flash) and rtsp (for everything else).

The only other thought is that we might include the "instance" in the URL:

rtsp://listen.onmyradio.net:1935/JAZZFM/_definst_/MP3:jazzfm_latelounge.mp3

Meantime, let me know if you get any info back from the forum.

Regards



Ken

Well, try playing those rtsp streams in any media player program, see if they work. My WinAmp won't play them, any rtsp link wants to launch Real Player on my end.

They play OK using VLC.

One of the problems with RTSP is that there are 3 variations so some players can get mixed up.

Looking promising that we will be able to play these streams using the rtmp flash versions... (using the rtmp processing in the BBCiPlayer plugin with a small tweek + something new to add some menus)

I've created a plugin for this. It should be available in the "Other 3rd Party plugins" list. It will also require you to install the very latest version of BBCiPlayer. It plays the Flash/AAC streams (same as those played by the web browser).

Let me know what you think (here or on the plugin forum).

Note - there may be issues playing back on Touch/Radio at present, if you have this problem then disable set the "proxied streaming" option for internet radio.

Thanks Triode. I have just downloaded the Jazz FM Plugin and it is working perfectly. Thanks for doing this so quickly. It is much appreciated.

Glad you like it - there's a few rough edges which I will look to updating. If you have contact with them, could you ask them if they have an official icon which they would be happy for us to include in this plugin?

I think it will also be possible to implement this as an applet for Radio/Touch to allow playback of these streams when attached to MySqueezebox.com, i.e. no local server. Would this be interesting to anyone?

I think that would be a great idea. :) I mostly use my Radio with SBS, but I always rather appreciate it when s.th. also works with mysb.com (e.g. when my Radio travels with me).

P.S.: Both the latest iPlayer and this new plug-in work just fine. :)
