Web based stream for the PS3
« on: August 01, 2007, 10:39:41 PM »
I don't have a computer and speakers in my front room so I would love to be able to stream DG through my PS3.  I noticed virgin radio put up a way to stream to the PS3 web browser.  I know this probably won't happen but I was just putting it out there.

I use www.slimdevices.com

How does the PS3 web browser work? Will the popup web player work in it?

The pop up web player comes up.  I can hit play and the song name will load and the EQ will jump but then it just sits there.

I think the virgin radio stream is an MP3

Not sure how a PS3 would play MP3, I mean, the Real/WMA plugin I use is just taking the MP3 stream and rebroadcasting it in a different format.

There isn't a web player I know of that plays MP3s except the flash based ones like MySpace uses. I'll look into it though.

I use the XSPF web player from http://musicplayer.sourceforge.net to stream mp3s of my band site at www.forgetmeknots.net
I dunno if this has the capabilities you'd need, but it plays mp3s in a web browser and is pretty simple. I imagine you can get it to play the dg stream directly, but I haven't looked into that at all....

Peace,

The forgetmeknots.net web player plays on the PS3 browser.
