    Internet Radio - SLimServer - URL entered manually

    Cannot manually connect to this URL through SlimServer,

    //radio3.cbc.ca/

    Can others get this URL to play through Squeexebox? Why can't I?

    I can't get your URL to play with mplayer or Squeezebox. I think the URL is wrong. Try this one

    http://icecast1.cbcradio3.com:80/r3

    Internet Radio - SLimServer - URL entered manually

    Sorry this doesn't work for me. The URL below will play on my browser but
    only for 10 seconds.



    http://radio3.cbc.ca/ This URL will play continuously on my browser but
    not through squeezebox.

    This is the URL for a web page not an audio stream.
    http://radio3.cbc.ca/

    The web page has links to an audio stream - find the link and it may play on the Squeezebox. The link I posted came from this webpage and it is a 128kbps link - snipped from the webpage.
    Code:
    <div id="getFlash"> The R3 Media Player requires Macromedia Flash Player 8, click the link below to grab it. <br /><br /> <a href="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflash/"> GET FLASH</a> <br /><br />
    To listen to the stream with a 3rd party media player like iTunes, Winamp, XMMS, etc... you can 
    access the stream through the following link:<br /><br />
    <a href="http://icecast1.cbcradio3.com/r3.m3u">http://icecast1.cbcradio3.com/r3.m3u</a> <br /><br />
    I've played it for a few minutes and it is OK - perhaps there is a network problem delivering that speeds to your PC ? I think the browser playing the page uses a Flash protocol which may be easier on your link.

    bpa, your first url got truncated. But, yes, this works fine for me, too: http://icecast1.cbcradio3.com/r3.m3u

    I found it by clicking the "mp3" link on the flash player, and having XMMS tell me what it was playing.

    Internet Radio - SLimServer - URL entered manually

    I see the actual link is this:
    http://icecast1.cbcradio3.com:80/r3

    What I do is build a playlist of radio stations and paste the links in to
    the playlist (that was the only way to do it with the old versions of
    slimserver).

    Try that link, or build yourself a playlist and see how that goes.

    Internet Radio - Slim Server - URL entered manually

    I'm in. Thank you.

    I changed my browser from my preferred browser Netscape 8.1 to Internet
    Explorer 7 and it worked fine.

    I suspect the choice of browser was the issue all along. Too bad SlimServer
    does not work with Netscape 8.1

    Thank you.
