  • Music:

Geekery about music streams. Microsoft can blow me.

While waiting for the latest snapshot to build, I started at, and proceeded to peel apart layers of html frames, redirects, javascript, and asf files, until I finally got the "real" URL, mms://, and then did a little bit of research, and determined that a tricked up mplayer is a mms client.

And lo, it works! For some reason, the mms client code requires that I use the -nocache command line parameter, else it tries to preload a full megabyte.

Now I can listen to my radio station on my Linux laptop.
