    CBS Radio to be pulled from TuneIn. Any way to uncover CBS URLs?

    That's another 1000 stations gone from Squeezebox just like 1000s of iHeart stations that are gone. I tried to uncover URLs from CBS radio but can't like iHearts. Anyone?

    The problem is CBS or Radio.com doesn't have any "icy" URLs in their codes like iHeart here:

    "CBS Radio stations will be pulled off TuneIn by August 1"
    https://radioink.com/2018/06/25/ente...s-from-tunein/

    "Entercom, the second-largest commercial radio group in the U.S., has announced its intention to pull its station streams off the radio aggregation platform TuneIn, and consolidate its streaming presence exclusively on CBS-created Radio.com"

    Trying to restart The Squeezebox Radio Show to share Tips and Tricks. Is there a better way than radio, then I'm all ears.

    Can't do anything for Radio.com as they are Geo locked to US. My advice would be use Chrome/Firefox developer console to show network traffic and then play a stream. If there is a normal http mp3/aac stream it will show as the request with continuous traffic.

    If necessary, play around with a known station to get familiar with the developer console and then try on a some more complex such as iheart.com.

    For radio.com stations, try the old "CBS Radio workaround address" which still seems to function at least on the stations I've had to enter manually. When inputting Favorites on Mysqueezebox.com, I use the following format:

    http://provisioning.streamtheworld.c.../XXXXXXAAC.pls

    Examples:

    For WEEI Boston --

    http://provisioning.streamtheworld.c.../WEEIFMAAC.pls

    For WFAN NY --

    http://provisioning.streamtheworld.c.../WFANAMAAC.pls

    WCBS --

    http://provisioning.streamtheworld.c.../WCBSAMAAC.pls

    WEEI had just gone over to Radio.com exclusively and I was trying last night to find the link. Plugged it into that address format (which had been posted years ago AFAIK) and it worked!
