Authored by: Eyedea on Jan 26, '06 07:31:45AM

Any luck getting this to work with .asx streams?

I haven't been able to so far.

Flip4Mac is known to have problems with ASX streams and their developers are working on it.

ASX streams are indeed broken in Flip4Mac. From my analysis it would seem it is not parsing the XML in the ASX files correctly along with interpretation of the data within. You can always download an ASX file and open it up to get to the mms stream within.

They F4M team is aware of the situation and is surely working to resolve the problem.

ASX streams are just lik mms, it is only a wrapper. I take as example the asx from the Belgian Radio Q-Music
  • Launch the Terminal
  • execute the command: wget http://www.q-music.be/asx/q_high.asx
  • execute the command: less q_high.asx
  • You'll see it's just an XML file:
    
    <ASX version = "3.0">

            </ENTRY>
    </ASX>
    
  • copy the mms:// url from the REF element: mms://clusterstreamhobo.telenet-ops.be/Qmusic_high
  • play it.
Oh... Replace the URL by the URL of the ASX you want to hear :-)
