Should I be able to select/operate Internet Radio stations via the web
interface? They're listed on my SqueezeBox but the only ones I can see via
my web interface is "ShoutCast Recently Played."

I'm running SS 5.4 on Windows XP Pro over 100mb network. Connection the web
is via Linksys router.

Thanks,
Eric

I'm not aware of any integration between radio plugins and the web
interface.

I had written the rudaments of a PERL script that could be associated
with the .pls and .m3u file types on a computer for a "Play through
Slimserver" kind of integration. It should work in concept for playing a
radio playlist. It was based on some code someone else posted a while
back, but theirs only supported one player (I have two) and Slimserver
had to be running on the local machine (which mine isn't).

I'll need to dust that off and see where it stands.

Using the Default skin on the web interface, there's a link on the
main page under "Help" titled "Internet Radio". From that page you
can enter the url of an internet radio stream. So, if you can get the
url (copying them from the Shoutcast web page or publicradiofan.com or
wherever) you can paste them into that form and play the stream.

There isn't, to my knowledge, a way in the web interface to use the
Shoutcast or RadioIO menus as they appear in the player interface.

I suppose you could use Softsqueeze and sync it with your hardware
player and use that to navigate the Internet Radio menus.
