Reading an .asx or .pls file from the web?

hey guys -

i’m trying to setup an all-in-one patch that’ll do a few various tasks, and one of them is to play some of my favorite internet radio stations…

…but i can’t seem to figure out how to get FileStream to accept a .pls or an .asx, even.

is this even possible?

help!

thanks!

nope. filestream cannot read .pls or .asx files.

well, crud.

hmm…any kind of OTHER way to go about it?

@pls:
you can extract file locations with Reader (File)

the internet explorer component in the Renderer (HTML URL) might be able to play these files with (or without) a plugin.

Could the Renderer (Flash) be of any help?

if you find an mediaplayer program which can be started via the command line, you can call it via ShellExecute (Windows) .
