It has been a long time since I last tried, but Rhythmbox won't play the radio stations that used to play perfectly well. I haven't tried for > 6 months. The station I want to hear is mms://s67wm.castup.net/990310008-52.wmv, but no other station works either.
If I run it under VLC, it works fine. It could be that I used Banshee long ago which was replayed by rhythmbox - I simply don't remember.
My question is: can anyone verify that rhythmbox does indeed play radio stations? The advantage of rhythmbox is that it doesn't take any extra space on the icon bar, since it is always running. I like the idea of being completely unobtrusive, and it used to work beautifully.
