I have a problem with playing internet radio. The stream is It plays in google chrome, and VLC but not Rhythmbox. I want it to play in Rhythmbox because it integrates with Ubuntu better. How do I get this to play in Rhythmbox?

Haven't tried Rhythmbox;

*.asx works for me in VLC

and does NOT work for me in Banshee (in Natty).

Maybe an extension (perhaps the radio extension) is needed here?

"Error opening stream - could not open stream or playlist" and "File Not Found"

are the messages I get in Banshee.


Rhythmbox and Banshee not playing in 11.04
