all I did was paste this url in vlc open network stream then hit play
also have installed task-multimedia
Thanks .... yes I have got that and the WMA alternatives to all the smil streams I wanted.
Took a little searching but I am good now.
Is there a limit on the number of stations that radiotray will hold?
Just wondering ..... I have a bunch to save there.
I have also been testing recording some interesting topics from it and have used gnome-recorder (from gnome-media) to record the stream --- using Pulse set up to contol how the stream is directed etc.
Thanks again for the tip about radiotray .... nice and simple setup ... and the recording is now working so I am happy with that.
