Can't get Radio Tray to work with WABC-AM

Postby jimwg on Wed Jan 23, 2013 3:10 am

Greetings!

I'm having problems getting Radio Tray (said to be the easiest and simplest) to work with WABC-AM Talkradio at http://player.streamtheworld.com/_playe ... 6&nid=2920. I used the advice from http://lifehacker.com/5612596/radio-tra ... -for-linux and http://streema.com/about/faqs/ but no go. This is my first outing to hear radio without a browser so maybe I'm just not getting the configuration right. Any hints would much be appreciated!

Thanks!

Works like a cherry!!!! Thanks a trillion! How is this "provisioning" different from the original player.streamtheworld which works on the WABC radioplayer in Firefox? Should I use this technique for other radio stations in Radio Tray? Thanks!!!

Real stream vs. Flash movie, I suppose.

When I clicked the streamtheworld link you provided, I got a message about Adobe Flash player being required. So I figured that link was some kind of flash movie, with nothing more than a player as video part. That's not the type Radio Tray can use, so I looked at http://www.mikesradioworld.com/ and this did have WABC listed, but that stream link didn't work anymore. Google (well, startpage.com, actually) led me to the provisioning link which did.

Should I use this technique for other radio stations in Radio Tray?

No idea. I guess you could try.

In my experience stream links can simply disappear overnight, because the people/companies providing them rearrange things (or disappear themselves). Whenever that happens I usually visit the website of the radio station involved and look for info. If that doesn't help and mikesradioworld doesn't have a new link, I just do a search and experiment with the results.
