Smile Setting Radio Address in Mplayer for kindle3

Many users don't know how to set Radio Address for Mplayer for kindle3.

【Background Knowledge】
1、Set up Mplayer for kindle3 first.
2、After my testing,Mplayer for kindle3 can only support two addresses,one is mms,another is the one Winamp supports. And you must type the web address, while not the file with .asx or .lps.

【Get the Radio Address】
1、get the mms:
mms address can be opened by Windows Media Player(WMP). Use WMP to open mms://,you can know the file property in the playlist, so you can have the mms address, ie., mms://。Other mms addresses can be found in such way when the radio station is opened in WMP.
★Attention,Mplayer for kindle3 can't support mms address so well, so some addresses will be failed or pitch changed, just like mms of NPR news. So the Winamp address will be better. (Even the Winamp Address for NPR news sounds wired in kindle, and I don't know why)

2、Get Winamp Address.
(1)go to
(2)open a now tab at a radio station, you can see a file named "tunein-station.pls". saved it and open it by winamp.
(3)See the "file property" after open the file, you shall see an address like
"" on the first line. So it's the genune address.

Copy the address to playlist file.
【Set the playlist】
playlist needs only the website address, one radio station one line.
put the content:

(Southern California Public Radio)
(Chicago Public)
(Alex Jones -
(Comedy Club)

This is my playlist, all news.
Use the parentheses to make the Radio name distinct.

I used a changed Mplayer by Shafeng which can support two playlists.
download the file from:

This is my setting for playlist2, all music.

(UK top40)
(KCRW ECLECTIC24:All Music Stream)
(BBC 2)
mms:// 44141f29f71d4621ff&SSO2-UID=
(BBC 6)
mms:// 44141f29f71d4621ff&SSO2-UID=
(First Gem Dance)
(New Age)
(The Breeze)

【Recomended Websites】
(Click winamp/itunes,download the .pls file to see the genune address)

Boy, that's an awful lot to go through. Wouldn't it be easier to just use your phone or an iPod or something?
