Streaming BBC Radio from non-MP3 asx or mms: Converting to http:
The on-line multiuser 3D game system "Second Life" is able to play most stream URL's that start with "http:" that Winamp 3.0 uses as the radio station for a land region you own in the game... however, BBC World Service Radio doesn't seem possible to easily stream in Winamp 3.0 or Second Life. BBC World Service Radio used to only have RealAudio support back in 2005, but now it has Windows Media Player support as well, with either of the following stream URLs:
The upper address is a "URL", while the lower one is a "URI", whatever that is.
What I would like is to know how to convert this into an address that looks something like these:
http: //cast.voxcdn.net:8000/live (Air America Radio)
http: //pjs.sytes.net:8888/ (Mark Maron/Seditionist Radio)
http: //184.108.40.206:8030 (Digitally Imported, Drum 'n' Bass)
http: //radiolib.origamix.org:5000/radiolib (Radio Libertaire)
http: //scfire-chi0l-2.stream.aol.com:80/stream/1021 (Secret Agent)
http: //aud-one.kpfa.org:8000/icy_0 (Berkeley Pacifica Radio)
http: //stream.army.mil:80/SRTV/SRL/128Kb (US Army Soldiers' Radio)
http: //stream.nute.net/kohina/stream.ogg (Old School Game/Demo Music)
...all those URL's work fine in Second Life, but the two I have for BBC World Service News Radio do not. Is there a way to convert them on the fly, or simply rewrite the URL/URI so they will play in Winamp 3.0 and Second Life?
Thanks for any help anyone can give.
