Connecting to DA or other Internet Radio stations wiht a Mac

Postby nosmadar » Sun Mar 05, 2006 12:42 pm

I don't have a Mac, but my friends and family do. Which is why I need to ask the question. Winamp and Quinessential do not have Mac versions. Will a Mac connect to the stream autoamatically when you click on the link? Is there additional software or configuration that's needed.

There may be a way to connect. If the automatic stream link does not work, you could click on the link for "Other players." There you will find a link to stream it on Windows Media and also on RealPlayer.

A buddy of mine just figured out how to get the stream on his Mac. One note: he was not able (yet) to get the aac+ stream, only the MP3. Here's what he did:

Open iTunes
Go to Advanced Menu
Open Stream
Use the MP3 stream address in the form of http://s2.viastreaming.net/7060

That worked for him, and he's enjoying DA on his Mac...

Hope this helps out!

I've done a research on linux aac capable players (there's high posiibility that its results are relevant to MacOSX as well) and found that latest mplayer plays the stream (1.0 prerelease 8, if you intend to compile from source make it use it's internal faad, that's a deafault afair), however the stream info isn't displayed in gui version , but they do appear in standard output (means it should run inside a shell window).
Other s/w that plays: amarok, kaffeine and anything else that uses libxine.

Just FYI, the stream addresses have changed, so use http://208.53.158.48 for the address and 9552 for the aacPlus port, or 9564 for the mp3 port.
