How to make a .asx direct streaming link for windows media radio


Recommended Posts

Good Morning to all...

 

I have been trying to get my station listed on Windows Media Radio for a while now but im doing something wrong.

 

Below is what i they sent me.

 

We need a direct streaming link in order to submit your station for inclusion. A direct stream is an audio or video stream that plays directly in Windows Media Player without displaying or launching associated web pages. When a user clicks on it, it should directly open a Windows Media Player.

Here are some correct samples FYI

Please note that we do not accept .pls files natively.Thank you,WindowsMedia.com Radio Guide

 

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME MAKE A .ASX DIRECT STREAMING LINK. IM REALLY LOST HERE.

 

THANKS FOR YOUR TIME AND CONCERN.

have to assume it's not known that with the current v2.x DNAS releases you can just pull an ASX playlist directly from it via the /listen.asx?sid=# option than trying to mess around with external files (which works well when you've got the DNAS setup to use a DNS value via the 'destip' configuration option). much simpler than using external tools and so on imho.

it really depends on what option you go with as per your setup.

 

as you can either upload asx files (with the address of the server included in them as per the initial information) or if the server supports it (as it's not clear what you're using to broadcast with) then you just provide the link from the server itself (without having to mess around with uploading files and ensuring the links put into them are correct, etc).

Hi 1073,

 

I don't understand what can be so confusing

As James quoted generate Your asx file at the link that he provided

We have an online tool to help you make an .asx playlist.

 

http://www.broadcastingworld.net/tools/asx-generator/

After You did that, upload the file to your webserver

Link the "listen.asx" to an image, icon or whatever

example : http://www.yourdomain.net/1073.asx

If You have done this properly, you gonna see that the link gonna open, and it gonna start playing your default mediaplayer

im so lost right now... i thought i was suppose to upload it to my server. im new to this so any help s good.

By the way ... at August 13 I already uploaded at my reply 2 ready to use asx files

It looks that these files ... or have failt your attention, or you have ignored my reply

 

If you still don't understand how to manage this, please visit my stationpage and checkout how I connected the listen files

Making a listen link is basic html knowledge !

Ok i guess where im getting confused at is the links part. You see how Windows media responded to me and gave me an example of .ASX links? Im looking to send them links like that for my radio station, and im trying to figure out how to make them. Hopefully i explained what im trying to do better.
