Windows 7: Make a short to an audio stream and load a playerIn Win XP

We are getting there.\

On this Somafm > Dronezone they have a page of direct streamlinks which stay on all the time uninterrupted
etc.

Here is the collection:

I've only tried to enter/drag the Mp3 128 (first option) This is a lot deeper than I had expected to go.

SomaFM: Drone Zone: Direct Stream Links for other media players

You can see the .pls links there. Plus I see that Foobar offers the same drag/drop feature as Winamp
but it hasn't all come together yet. I've added a pls but not getting sound and I've waited plenty time for it
to set up. Where Winamp showed the IP address, none is visible with this one (which would have solved everything
since I had the template. )

Perhaps one of the others direct stream options shown?

I will try the technique you give for Notepad and report back.

Now I can test :-)


This works for me:
Code:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\K-Lite Codec Pack\MPC-HC64\mpc-hc64.exe" http://www.simplexstream.com/tunein.php/telegram/playlist.pls
If that format fails for you, then it might be a limitation of the WinAmp and/or foobar2000. Or perhaps some security setting.


Even though somafm offers direct links [as I linked to post #24 & you linked to post #31], I'm still going to use their PLS file to make the point that you should not need an IP address in the URL to make your shortcuts.

Some PLS files use an IP address as part of the URL.
Code:
[playlist]
numberofentries=1
File1=http://5.152.208.98:8058/
Title1=Ancient FM - www.ancientfm.com
Length1=-1
version=2

Code:

Your players should be able to turn the text in the URL to an IP address via a DNS query.

I am back and will test the sample using the simplestream pls example in the post above.

Syntax seems to be the big problem. Plus what you describe as the various problems/techniques in how
the links are made.

AAC (also shown above) would be a good one to try as well.

Sorry to have to be spoon fed about this but I'm out of my depth.

Catching up on this as well. I have a couple of locations for icons stored on Win7 and will give those
when I'm ready to browse to them. It was a simple google lookup for anyone who wants to find them
right away.


Where are my icons in Windows 7? - Super User

Well that superuser page was useless for me. Dll this and that is not an icon folder. Even looking for the
icon folder gave me icons _for_ folders.

Maybe someone knows where the folder for icons is in Win7? Simple and direct. I came up with a lot of bad search when using the Win7 search box with what I found as the icon file extension which is .ico.

Just to get things going, there is an icon archive site here:

Windows 7 Icons - Download 285 Free Windows 7 icons here

You can simply download one to the desktop. I picked one pretty much at random, dl'ed to the
desktop and then opened my Properties for the shortcut and navigated to it.

That job is sort of done but done the hard way.

Also, why is there a 'remember me' box on Win7 that never remembers my login?
