I am trying to stream a Internet radio station using a browser. It appears like it is loading but I don't hear any sound. This is the station I am trying to stream: http://tunein.com/tuner/?StationId=68906 (It is a regional radio station and is in Tamil.)

When I try to stream it in Rhythmbox, I get the following error message:

Required plugin could not be found Python (v2.7) requires to install plugins to play media files of the following type: text/html decoder

I don't think this is a network firewall problem because I can listen to the radio when I am on Windows 7. I am expecting it to be an issue of a missing plugin.

Works here in Firefox 9, default Totem plugin. –  mikewhatever Jan 21 '12 at 13:57

Install GStreamer plugins for mms, wavpack, quicktime, musepack Install gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad. After restart of browser and clicking the link it asked to install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg Install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg and chromium played the stream.

I just purged the gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad and gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg and reinstalled it and the radio is working fine. Thanks! –  jokerdino Jan 22 '12 at 12:58
    
I have both plugins installed, yet not working on google chrome. I was trying to listen to rvlradio.com/#index.php?pageName=rock –  Prayag Upd Dec 21 '12 at 10:02
    
I was getting the same error. I removed gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg refreshed the page and the radio worked. –  topless Jun 17 '13 at 8:26
