Best audio player for streaming flv with HE-AAC?
« on: August 13, 2010, 10:05:02 PM »
Hi guys,

I just found this stream

http://u12b.sky.fm/s...lassical_aacplus.flv

it can not be played in foobar2000 or VLC.

Are there any other media players on Windows can play this stream and scrobble to last.fm ?

This link downloads with NetTransport...at like 5 kbs on my cable connection.As far as getting it to scrobble,the tracks seem to be in one continuous stream,it would most likely be impossible to scrobble.


Heres a link i found on how last fm identifies tracks

That FLV stream URL is almost certainly for use in their embedded website Flash player.  The ShoutCast URL for that SKY.FM station is:

http://yp.shoutcast....ation.pls?id=1377511

The direct URL is:  http://72.26.204.28:5114

Either one of those should work in foobar, VLC or even my own Trout player.  However, regarding scrobbling within Trout, I specifically do NOT scrobble streaming music.
