That is literally a mp3 download not a m3u in case you wondered and yes it opens a tab with it playing in chrome for me but if you want to listen to it anywhere then right click that link for it and chose save link and it will give you the mp3 to listen too. http://traffic.libsyn.com/democracyn...014-1006-1.mp3

I right clicked to Save As and then the process of the download would start rather
than a direct stream. (Foot tapping and finger drumming starts ;-) )

If there is no way around their setup (pod casts are out-- they require subscription) I 'll
have to use one of the other feeds to be able to do two things at once.

But I've seen other sites for this hang too: the player loads but cannot start. Winamp said it was looking for something it couldn't find--

In Firefox there are all these stream settings For Pod cast, Video podcast-- many many of them.
Could one of these be blocking the correct setup?

I am writing from the old XP machine. I will review those to find any differences.

That's exactly how the Save As is supposed to work, prompts the user to name it and specify the location/Folder on the HDD to save it to.

I don't care to save each newscast or, as mentioned, wait for a download.

There is no shortage of sites for this news. Once I have one working (KPFA plus Foobar)
I can get the needed content.

We found that the problem was Firefox. I think I can mark the thread solved.
