I'm a Linux user, but I'm sure there's lots of other programs that could gain similar functionality. Basically, a link that would allow something like Clementine (for Linux), Winamp, VLC, maybe iTunes, to stream Radio Rivendell from within that player. Also, this would allow the media control keys on most keyboards to work with the player, rather than hunting for the browser to pause! In fact, this used to exist, I think? I was playing Radio Rivendell out of my cmus linux music player for a long time until it stopped working. Basically, .pls or .m3u files generally seemed to work well, with the file sending the streaming music link to the player.

Hi! Sorry for my absence! I've been swamped with life and stuff 😅 You should be able to tune in directly to our streams, try these: https://play.radiorivendell.com/radio/8000/radio.ogg https://play.radiorivendell.com/radio/8000/radio.mp3

That was perfect, thank you! For anyone else using cmus: I made a pls file on my machine, and added those urls to it so that cmus could access them. I also took out the 's' of https otherwise it wouldn't work! Here's my copy of the content of the file: (square bracket) playlist (square bracket) numberofentries=2 File1=http://play.radiorivendell.com/radio/8000/radio.ogg Title1=Radio Rivendell Fantasy Music Length1=-1 File2=http://play.radiorivendell.com/radio/8000/radio.mp3 Title2=Radio Rivendell Fantasy Music Length2=-1
