Flash or Java player to play most internet audio streams?
December 1, 2007 9:11 AM   Subscribe

I am looking for an flash or Javascript plug in that I can embed into a website to play Internet radio streams. Specifically, one that will play mp3, wma/mms, and Realplayer (pls) streams. Does anyone know of one?

I have a website that I've been building for myself that has a bunch of internet streams (audio only). I'm trying to find a flash or java player that will act as the "front end" to this database.

Ideally, if it plays realplayer, windows, and mp3 streams, that would be fantastic.

Any suggestions?

P.s. I don't want to have the files on site, and load the local media player to play the streams. I want the "player" to come through the web.

There is an excellent open source music player that can be found at musicplayer.sourceforge.net. Instructions can be found on the site, but you'll need to know a little bit of XML so that you can tell the player where the files are stored.

I'm not sure if it plays anything besides mp3s.

I think realplayer is entirely obsolete these days, and people who don't run Windows will have trouble playing wma/mms.

Flash can play Mp3 just fine, however -- there are many flash mp3 players, for instance:
