Please don't shout.

Yes! If it's sending out 'radio' broadcast data, then you might want to try SHOUTCAST. However, if you are looking for something to play internet broadcasts on your computer, then look no further than XMMS.

nothing about internet radio. can you be more specific.
OK, presumably your XMMS plays normal MP3 files on your harddisk? In which case, it should be really easy! Go somewhere that streams using standard .pls (playlist) files and click on the link from your browser (it should be setup already to run .pls files in xmms). Go to shoutcast.com and try one of theirs. If, however, your browser isn't setup to open .pls files automagically in xmms, then you can 'open location' by pressing ctrl+L and then entering the url of the .pls file. If everything is as it should be, then Robert's your father's brother.

http://mplayerhq.hu is also great for most radio streams.

What buffer sizes are you using? (Go to xmms preferences and click on 'configure' for the MPEG input plugin - it's under the 'streaming' tab).

Thymox-this is confusing - sunday i got sound but garbled - monday it appears the skin is playing but there is no sound ( i tried many stations and i have sound when playing a CD) MPEG is 128kb buffer size, SHOUTCAST & Icecast are enabled, i'm using OSS driver buffer size 3000ms and Master not PCM enabled. also at one time i received a pop-up message
Are you using the correct output plug-in?
Is your sound card correctly configured?
hope this helps
