How to play Internet streams

There are two main types of Internet stream:

Broadcasting streams
Sound files available on a web site

 

Broadcasting streams

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:

1.Move your mouse button over such button or link.
2.Click right mouse button
3.Click copy shortcut
4.Paste your shortcut into a text box at Play Audio Stream window or paste directly into a playlist.

 

Notes:

1.Please be aware that the full Internet stream address should have the .pls extension in order to play with our software

the file to your computer first and then start the playback.
