streaming radio station


I wanted to listen to a streaming radio station (92.3 WXRK) and their site does have a listen live link. It then displays a Flash based player (it works nicely). But my question is:
How can I get at the stream #s so that I can use Amarok or XMMS to play the stream instead? I can only get at the first few numbers that it connects to: 208.80.52.68 (as displayed in the status bar in SeaMonkey) but I can't seem to get at the rest of it.

http://www.923krock.com/pages/1528015.php -- click the "Listen Live" link at the top.

Right-click on the Listen Live button, and click on Copy Link Address to copy it to your clipboard.

When I right click and select to copy the address to clipboard, I get:
"javascript:launchPlayer(155,'wfny3');" and that does not work for XMMS nor Amarok.

As for
http://208.80.52.68/WXRKFM?streamtheworld_user=123134 Amarok could not play it, it said that it did not have a plugin or some such problem and XMMS said it was a wrong address.

you will need to find an address that starts with mms:\\etc.

This is the actual MultiMedia Stream. I had to dig through the web page for the radio station I like to get it.

You might try this: http://player.cbsradio.com/player/CB...&onestat=wfny3

you might have problems with it, because the stream is a flash embedded stream.
