"Cannot find decoder for certain url"

Added by Jhonatan Ochoa almost 2 years ago

Hello,

I've been trying to add/open a web radio station in Audacious without success. I believe it's a mp3 stream and every time I try to add/open it I got the message "No decoder found for http://..." I've tried several ways to fix it but none of them worked, and I've searched on google intensively without any results. The following is a list of links to the same radio station, none of them work on Audacious as today (Mon Sep 17, 23:39).

128kbit:
http://radio.everfreeradio.com:5800/listen.pls?sid=1
http://radio.everfreeradio.com:5800/listen.m3u?sid=1
http://radio.everfreeradio.com:5800/listen.asx?sid=1

320kbit:
http://radio.everfreeradio.com:5800/listen.pls?sid=2
http://radio.everfreeradio.com:5800/listen.m3u?sid=2
http://radio.everfreeradio.com:5800/listen.asx?sid=2

80kbit:
http://radio.everfreeradio.com:5800/listen.pls?sid=3
http://radio.everfreeradio.com:5800/listen.m3u?sid=3
http://radio.everfreeradio.com:5800/listen.asx?sid=3

I was running the 3.2 version from the ubuntu 12.04 lts repository but today upgraded to version 3.3.1 from the webupd8 ppa, but the problem persists.

Thanks in advance for your help. And I'm very sorry for my english/grammar, I don't speak english natively and I'm struggling just to write this message.

It's the "?sid=1" parameter that somehow confuses Audacious.

A quick work-around is to load the URL with your favourite web browser, save it, then load the resulting "listen.pls" playlist file in Audacious.

Thanks!

It worked like a charm.

Michael, thanks for helping out. I've fixed the root problem so that the workaround will not be necessary in future versions:
