    My favorite radio station offers live streaming, but I haven't been able to
    figure out how to get it. The station says this: "Live Stream is available
    in two formats, AAC+ and MP3. WinAmp is the recommended player for the
    highest quality AAC+ stream, while Windows Media Player, iTunes, and
    RealPlayer will play the MP3 stream." Generally, I use VLC media player, but
    I do have Windows Media Player--but couldn't see how to use it.

    Any idea of where I should start?

    Thank you!

    Since it is the recommended player why not use WinAmp?

    What happens when you click on either one to try it? (I'm assuming one of
    your players will be able to handle it. You don't necessarily need Winamp
    to play AAC, and WMP to play mp3 files, by any means!). What player do you
    normally use to play mp3s? If you click on an mp3 file in windows
    explorer, what player handles it?

    Next time I will, Bob! Thank you! (I just got it working in VLC. Don't know
    how...)

    Thank you, Bill! I tried one more time in VLC media player, where I had
    tried before, and suddenly it worked. Before, I couldn't get any sound at
    all.
