Most online radios stream using ASX and WMA encoding, which doesn’t work in Android phones at all. But do not worry, kzu alias Daniel Cazzulino on his blog has written about how an Android users can listening online radio streaming. Only with an audio player application and an account in http://www.yourmuze.fm/. These are some of the steps that he did:
- First create an account on this site http://www.yourmuze.fm/. Then select your preferred audio streaming quality.
- Find a radio station you like, if if there is none you can make it. Go to “My Stations”, click the ‘add a new station’ and follow the instructions over there. After you create the station, it’s not automatically added to your “My Stations” queue. But it will of be the first station in the list now.
- Click the “add” link to the right of the station name, in the My Stations column. You’re done with the site. Then go to your phone.
- In your phone, open browser and go to this url http://m.yourmuze.fm/ then login to your account. Under “My Stations” you will find your custom station.
- Opening it will launch the video player tuned to the radio.
- Install the Dolphin HD browser from the android market (free). Go the Dolphin HD browser Settings, and set the User Agent to iPhone.
* If you want to launch the radios with one click, browse now to http://m.yourmuze.fm/, long-press the station from My Stations section, and select Bookmark link.
* Next go to Bookmarks (you can just swipe the screen to the right, very Metro!), click Edit, and long-press the station bookmark you just created and select Add shortcut to Home.
- Next you need an audio player. The only one that worked is xiialive lite (free too). You don’t need to do anything in the player.
For iPhone users who want to enjoy this service can download the application in the app’s iTunes page. Here is (link will only work if you have iTunes installed)
