WonderPlugin Audio Player

Question:

I wonder how could I play a shoutcast audio streaming with WonderPlugin Audio Player? I tried to enter the address of the .pls file to the plugin, but it's not playing.

Answer:

The .pls file is actually a text file that contains a link or links to the audio streaming. You need to open the .pls file with a text editor, find the streaming URL and directly enter the streaming URL to the plugin.

If the streaming URL has a format like:

http://IP:port

You need to add a suffix ;&type=mp3 and enter the following URL to the plugin:

http://IP:port/;&type=mp3

Then in the plugin, step 1, Add Audio dialog, you can enter the streaming URL to the Mp3 URL box and check the option "This is a live streaming".
