    I've been trying to take two radio stations who have a 'listen live' icon on their web sites. I've gone to the site on my pc, clicked on the link until it opened windows media player (10) then saved off my playlist as an m3u file. I got that file on my treo 650 and opened it up with pocket tunes, it just seems to stay on buffering. Did I miss a step or something?

    Why don't you look up the site on your Treo and select the link? You have to have Pocket Tunes Deluxe to stream.

    What's the bit rate of the stream? If it's too large for your connection, you'll just see constant buffering.

    It's it's not shoutcast or live365, it won't work.

    That is not true. I stream from several sights that have mp3 stream links, but are not available via shoutcast or live365. As long as it is mp3 and the data rate is compatible with network it will work.

    I've listened to the Sean Hannity show streamed from his website.

    You can also do a 'save as' of the stream link on your PC (off the website), and then open the link in wordpad on your pc and copy the streaming link url to pTunes.

    the mp3 streams on somafm.com stream great to ptunes -- assuming you can get the datarate. (some of their streams are 128k, which is usually to rich for my bandwidth's blood)

    I think my issue is that the link is actually a .asx

    Can someone provide a quick step-by-step of how I can listen to streaming radio on my 650? And dare I ask if can all be done for free. ;-)

    Here, I did a search for you:

    PocketTunes Deluxe costs $34.95

    That's what I'm using. It works fairly well, but you need to look at what format the station you want to listen to is in. If when windows media player opens it and you save off the playlist, if it ends in .asx pocket tunes won't be able to open it.

    Basically, Pocket Tunes Deluxe is the player you need. Then, you need to find stations on the Web that stream in MP3 format such as Shoutcast or Live365, and you can find many others, as some have mentioned. Alternatively, you can stream your home music collection by setting up a Shoutcast or Gloonet server.

    The bitrate of the stream should be at or below your service plan's typical data connection rate (visit http://www.dslreports.com/mspeed in Blazer to find out your rate). Enter the URL of the audio stream into Pocket Tunes (Actions > Open > Internet Radio), and then and there you are streaming to your Treo. You can also start streaming by visiting a site using your Treo's Web browser and clicking on the stream's link.
