AFL .asx on Xoom

Richard 7 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago 1

I dont know if this a problem specifically with this stream, or if its to do with the asx. 


I have Xiialive lite installed on my Xoom.  When i try to put in this stream url to load, it doesnt seem to think that its a valid url.


It doesnt always have audio streaming through it, but it does seem to always buffer and load through windows media player.

Unfortunately this is the ONLY way to listen to the AFL radio online so I have been looking for a way to do it for a while.

I have tried playing this stream with Winamp but I was not able.  I'm thinking this stream might be using some very old server or it might just be down?

Hmm I downloaded winamp and I cant get it to play.   Im getting this

 [error syncing to stream]: rtsp://bptvlive.ngcdn.telstra.com/online-radio-afl_2


I am not sure of the sure of the details behind the rtsp protocol, but I assume that that means it has found an asx file and those details point it to the URL for the live stream.  I will try again when I know it is active and see what happens.


Could I put the rtsp:// url directly into XiiaLive? 


Is there way to work out if its using a very old server? Possible to get the server details from a url?


Its very odd because even though no audio does come through it definately works on windows media player (buffers and starts playing)
