you need to install the playlist loader plugin and then in the filetypes list associate asx to winamp and that should be it. using that and with the link you've provided works a treat for me.

From TGSH => How to play ASX streams in Winamp.

1) Save the asx file to your hd
2) Open it in your text editor
3) Find the actual address of the stream (starting with MMS)
4) Add "/.wma" without quotes (only add ".wma" if the mms adress already ends with a /) and copy the result to your clipboard
5) Open Winamp, press Ctrl + L to open the "Open URL" box, paste your modified address then press OK, then play.

In your example, the address in the asx file is mms://wmbd.serverroom.us/wmbd/ => so open Winamp, press Ctrl + L, paste mms://wmbd.serverroom.us/wmbd/.wma in the box then press ok, then play.

Tried it, it works

Didn't know about the playlist loader thing (go Dro ). Use this plug-in, it does what I described but automatically

It's not part of the Winamp distro (yet - but will be hopefully soon), so yes... keep checking in either DrO's signature, or in the Playlist Loader Discussion thread. The latest version there is Playlist Loader v0.9.9.7 (posted earlier today). You can also check DrO's Plugin Releases page at his site for latest releases > Playlist Loader v0.9.9.7. Actually, I just checked and although it wasn't up to date a few days ago, the Playlist Loader plugin published at Winamp.com is also up to date now (v0.9.9.7).

Don't email or PM me concerning Winamp. Instead, either start a NEW TOPIC or post a REPLY in the appropriate thread in these forums. This will also benefit others who may have a similar question or problem. But before posting, please first Search the forums and read all FAQs and all Sticky threads.

Dro,

I think it would be a good idea to write a short descriptions for all plug-ins (I downloaded "one for nunz" without even knowing what it was for )
