Live365 stream for Internet Radio

Postby simonmason » Wed Jan 09, 2013 10:03 am

Has anyone figured out how to get a playable stream URL from Live365? I have tried a number of different things - snooping, etc. But nothing seems to work. The most successful attempt I have made only works if you login to the site and set remember me. Then the direct stream works from that browser. When I use Internet Radio it thinks it is a new browser and plays a message that I have to log in. Any thoughts?

Not pretty but this works for me.

Go to the station page you want to listen to on Live365.com
Right click on the page and select view source.
Search for a series of Javascript code that starts with "thisStation.set"

Locate the "address" element. The value is the URL that you can put into Content Manager for playing the stream.

For example I found WUMB on Live365. This was the URL that was embedded in the page and I am listening to WUMB right now.

Code: Select all

thisStation.set('address',          "http://www.live365.com/play/wumb919fast");

I am doing this. However, it only works when I issue that command directly in the browser and in a session where I have logged into Live365. If you place that string into the Internet Radio app as a custom station it will not play. Instead I get a message asking me to log into Live365.

Interesting as it does not do that here. What station are you grabbing? I'll try that one here.
