Mobile audio streaming FAQ for Infant stations
This station uses Shoutcast & WOWZA to deliver a live HE-AAC / AAC+ audio stream to a
Flash player. Very few mobile platforms support Flash streaming but some do from Shoutcast (SC).
Some phones will work out of the box this way but for most other phones you’ll need to install a 3rd
party application depending on your phone’s operating system.
Shoutcast streams are typically opened using .pls playlist file. On a PC you would use 3rd party
software like Winamp,VLC or iTunes to open a SC stream; on a MAC, you would use QuickTime,
VLC or iTunes.
The SC playlist URL for Eden FM is http://infant.antfarm.co.za/edenfm/listen.pls
Some models support a .pls while others need the direct URL to the stream.
In order for you to listen to a stream using your mobile phone using above URL,
please refer to the table below to get some guidance as to what could be done to achieve this
You must have a blackberry running an OS newer than 4.5.
Copy the URL to a bookmark. Clicking this bookmark should present you with the option to stream
or save the file, click stream.
Several apps advertise the ability to steam radio stations, and there really is a wide range of options
available for you. We recommend TuneWiki. Not only can this handle steaming radio, its long list of features makes it worth your time.
There is currently no “out-of-the-box” solution for Nokia or other Symbian type phones. There are two
3rd party solutions that are compatible with theses handsets, one of which is dependent on the station to
register and add their stations to the list of stations, namely Virtual Radio.
Take a look at Virtual Radio (www.vradio.org).
Or Nokia Internet Radio (http://nokia-internet-radio.en.softonic.com/symbian) in which you can
manually add the streaming URL.
If Nokia Internet Radio has been installed on a Symbian handset, opening the SC URL above in a
browser on the mobile will launch Internet Radio and automatically playback the audio stream without
needing to register the station. Page 2 of 2
On some Android phones you could download and install the “A Online Radio”. Check the Free
Multimedia Category on the Android Market. This option depends on the version of Android you’re
running. Add your interested channel on your own by using either of 2 ways:
1) Manually add, by entering Link.
2) Click on your channel link insider browser. The app will be launched and your channel will be added
You can open the above URL directly and the stream will playback in QuickTime/iTunes
By installing a 3rd party application called GSPlayer,
(http://www.freewareppc.com/multimedia/gsplayer.shtml )one can enter the above URL
and the stream should open.
