Can anyone tell me how I can listen to Winamp?through
I used to tune in using, but those links stopped working with Winamp a few months ago (at least on my machines). The direct URL page (when it was working) was an alternative to . I always thought it should be the other way around.
I’ve emailed the CBC about this. They haven’t responded.
I also want to listen to the CBC through my wireless system again — which I can’t do through the main listening page.
I’m not a huge fan of Winamp, but I have it configured just the way I like it, and it took a long time to get it the way it is, so switching to another media player is not an option.
If anyone can find a solution to this problem, I’ll send you a copy of my next CD, It Seemed Like a Good Idea at The Time – Vol. 2, provided CDs aren’t obsolete by the time I’m finished recording it. Thanks.
UPDATE: I followed the instructions left in the comments (thanks, Mr. Walkenbach) and it works — on Jody’s Winamp at his house, but not mine. I’ve updated Winamp and I still can’t connect. I keep getting an “error syncing to stream” message. So there must be a plug-in that’s messing things up. Now it’s a matter of uninstalling my plug-ins one at a time until it connects — which is probably won’t. (Deep sigh.) This isn’t the first time Winamp has done something like this. There must be something about my system it doesn’t like.
UPDATE #2: Does the
the Whole Wheat Radio link and it works. And as far as I know, it works with just about any media player. Simple. Why can’t the CBC do the same? The problem may be on my end, but I can’t figure it out. So I’ve decided to use Windows Media Player (not embedded) when listening to the CBC. I copied the links to the broadcasts I want to hear (the and broadcasts) and pasted them to my desktop. I click their icons, associate them to WMP and the streams open in WMP by default now. Not great, but better than nothing. Thanks for your help, though.
