Thank you for your quick reply!
System Version on my phone is 5.7.906.XT862.Verizon.en.US.
Android Version is Android 2.3.4
The following stations (these are the most important to me. No comments on my taste please!) all work from XiiaLivePro and shortcuts:
Sonic Universe Nu Jazz
Swiss Internet Radio
The following work in XiiaLivePro but do not work in shortcuts:
I just tested to make sure this data is accurate. First I played each station via XiiaLivePro directly, then I created a shortcut. While playing WAMC via XiiaLivePro directly, I noticed "INVALID URL" briefly flash on the top status bar just before it started buffering and then playing. It was a very brief flash, and it only happened once in several tries. I thought I saw a possible pattern (stations with an intro redirect don't work as a shortcut, and those without a redirect work)...
I then tested to see how the stations were streaming on line. I used the m3u option for each stream. I am running WIndows 7 64 in Virtual Box hosted on an Ubuntu 12.04 host:
WAMC http://wamc.org/listen-live-wamc (has a redirect)
WGBH http://www.wgbh.org/AUDIOPlayers/WGBH.cfm (has no redirect)
WFCR http://www.publicbroadcasting.net/wfcr/ppr/index.shtml (has a redirect, but we never get to the live stream)
WBUR http://www.wbur.org/listen/live (no redirect) Using the M3u option under General (Windows, Linux).
My theory is wrong. I now leave it in your hands. I will send the xml as requested soon.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
