Internet Radio Manual Entry

Postby ckob1308 » Fri May 01, 2009 12:17 am

The test internet radio station work for me but none that I entered myself. The stations I add appear on the PS3 with the logo but I get the data error when I try to play.

Most of my url end with .asx. Is the extension a factor?

Here is a sample:

audiostream.Web,Radios=Big Up Radio Dancehall,,

The url audio stream will paly on media player but wont play streaming on the PS3.

Wow that worked. How did you know? I copied the string found in the media player properties and it worked for TVer but not for PMS.

What about the rest of my stations? What change do i need to make to have them work?

Reason is VLC webstreaming is unable to use .asx source feeds, we must give an internal medialink. ASX is actually XML document having one or more stream urls. Multiple urls mean a playlist or mirrored urls if one is not working, then WMP player tries next one. You don't get to see a html source in IE. But you could use Firefox and ViewSourceWith addon to see internal urls.

Here are few internal media urls you can use. If URL does not work properly try changing to mms:// protocol. Some sites give links as http:// even if they were mms streaming sources. VLC is very picky about giving a corrent protocol prefix.

Code: Select all
4 Street Radio Soul,

Def Jam Urban, (this is html page, but WMP uses asx source)

Hot 108 Urban, url has multiple streams, here are few mirrored urls.

Power Hitz Urban,

S K Y FM Roots Reggae,

Slow Radio,

and so on, I leave rest to you. I have website to PS3MS RSS converter web application, its meant to be run on Tomcat app server. It may not suit everyone as requires some knowledge of Java app server. It has a converter to parse .asx source to ps3ms valid rss feeds. You could use it directly in web.conf file.

Reply would be a valid PS3MS rss feed.
Code: Select all
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<rss version="2.0" xmlns:media="">

   <title>Smooth Beats Hip Hop</title>

   <img src="" align="right" border="0" vspace="0" hspace="4" />
      <media:thumbnail url="" />

      <enclosure url="" />

Thank you Whome. Great tip. I fixed most of my internet radio issues. None of the 1Club.FMs or 4 Street Radio Soul or Def Jam Urban and
Hot 108 Urban don't work but enough of what I wanted to satisfy me.
