    well nice info but i still would like to know how to open an online stream with the programm ?

    i got me some pls from the winamp page which cannot be opened by the programm and inside there are the ip's but no clue what i need to do to get the programm to load the ip's

    --------

    doesn't load asx as well

    --------

    no m3u ...

    ------------

    you guys sure it is possible to load a online radio stream on one of those programms ?
    weirdly enough on the wiibrew page it says i should even be able to play mkv ... one mkv i had made the programm crash and another one lagged as hell and i had to restart wii because i couldn't do anything anymore ...

    Opera Browser can play radio streams as long as they're embedded in a web page. I use it for Last.fm radio all the time, it works flawlessly.

    Also, this probably isn't any use to you, but if you have a PSP or plan on getting a PSP and modding it, there's an online radio player that can play pretty much any m3u or pls stream you throw at it. A portable online radio player is a very cool thing to have.

    Well yeah, of course you'd have to have your TV turned on, most Wii consoles I've seen don't have speakers on them. [​IMG]

    Do you not have an AC adapter for your PSP? Plug your PSP up to the wall with the AC adapter, plug some desktop speakers into the PSP, and you're good to go. I've gone to sleep many-a-nights to my PSP, woke up the next morning and the music is still playing.

    Shoutcast isn't embedded, if you click Play on a station at shoutcast.com it'll just open up a .pls file in Winamp (or whatever your preferred audio program is) and stream it.

    I can listen to music from my Wii with my TV off.

    My Wii is hooked up to my 5.1 Surround Sound [​IMG]

    Dolby Digital is too good!

    Mplayerwii can stream "perfect" 1 bug can happen though depending on the type of stream once, you've selected a certain stream, it wont let you go back to menu, it will reset the stream and start over, that's the only issue.
