    What I am suggesting is the exact same except the file is not managed (and validated) by mysb - you could keep the single file on say sourceforge.net. The only difference is you download & edit it on any PC and save update back to cloud file service but it gives you freedom to have any special URL you like (e.g. wavinput, spotty, deezer)

    I'm not sure whether this has been mentioned. But IIRC you can tell
    mysb.com to NOT scan a URL when adding it. You'd have to append
    "#slim:noscan=1" to the URL. Eg.

    mms://wmlive-acl.bbc.co.uk/wms/radio1/radio1_nb_e1s1#slim:noscan=1

    Ahh - I see! Not something I've tried before, so I'll give it a try when I get a chance. No doubt I'll be back for more advice!

    Ha - very cunning! That has worked for me, but with a twist. By adding that to the end of my desired BBC R3 stream mentioned above, MySB would indeed now save it as a Favorite. However, though I could see it under MySB Favorites on my local LMS, it would not play.

    I then noticed that the URL had been changed as I saved it: A) the < #slim:noscan=1 > had been stripped off the end (expected?); but B) the < iplayer://live?hls= > had been stripped off the start of the URL (not by clumsy mouse-work on my part, I don't think!). By then manually editing the MySB-saved URL to the correct form - as below - it now both plays via an LMS-connected player, and displays the track info. Amazing! Fiddly - but amazing!


    iplayer://live?hls=http://a.files.bbci.co.uk/media/live/manifesto/audio/simulcast/hls/nonuk/sbr_low/ak/bbc_radio_three.m3u8&dash=http://a.files.bbci.co.uk/media/live/manifesto/audio/simulcast/dash/nonuk/dash_low/ak/bbc_radio_three.mpd&icon=http://radio-service-information.api.bbci.co.uk/logos/bbc_radio_three/600x600.png&radiovis=fm/ce1/c203/09100&onair=bbc_radio_three

    I recall the "noscan" but thought it was passed along - interesting that mysb strips it.

    Having now added to MySb Favorites a R4 stream and a R4Ex stream, all iPlayer, with track info, it worked slightly differently. And maybe I was having finger problems....

    So, on those last two (and I did each twice, just to check), in fact the <noscan> stuff at the end was NOT stripped; though the <iPlayer> stuff at the beginning was. However in order to get these streams to actually play (and show the stream info), I had BOTH to manually add in the <iPlayer> stuff at the start, AND strip the <NoScan> stuff at the end....
