Playing windows media streams

Post by cobram »

I am a long time registered user and fan of Media Monkey; I got recently interested in online radios (mainly shoutcast and icecast), but I cannot find a way to play Windows Media Streams associated with mms:// urls.

Is it possible to do this in MediaMonkey? I tried embedding the url in a pls file and searched thru the forums withous success; I also tried to use some winamp input plugins.

Thanks for this wonderful software.

try this
open a pls file with notepad, copy this in it, save it and open it with MM, than save it as a playlist in MM for easy acces later.

[playlist]
NumberOfEntries=1
File1=HERE COMES THE LINK
Title1=THIS IS SHOWN AS TITLE
Length1=-1

if it won't work change mms to http (it works sometimes)

some reading http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... t=playlist

also does the link is ens with .asx, .mp3 or something?

asx won't work i think :cry: (see the reading)

EDIT: if you want you can give the entire link.
