How to play Internet streams
There are two main types of Internet stream:
Internet radio is a broadcasting service which transmits one or more sound streams via the Internet.
When playing stream software will download the stream into a buffer quietly in the background.
How often the stream is going to be buffered that depends on your internet connection speed.
On average DSL 256KB/sec the playback is continuous without any additional buffering.
Many radio stations supply streams for dial-up modems and broadband separately.
How to get the Internet stream address:
Search the internet for radio stations, whenever on the radio station web page you will see a "Listen" or similar buttons that starts the stream then:
