Download the streams playlist file (.pls, .m3u, etc.) and then add it
to cplays playlist like you would with a normal mp3... That's how I do
it, I have not looked for a better way to do it because it's good
enough for me... It also depends on the back-end your using and what's
in your cplayrc file...
You could also launch the stream at the command line, you'll still
need to manually download the playlist file first:
$ cplay radio_paradise.m3u
If you do this:
$ cplay http://www.radioparadise.com/musiclinks/rp_128.m3u
It won't automatically fetch the playlist file, I think it's simply an
issue with the back-end player... maybe mpg123 (or another back-end)
can automatically fetch them... I don't know... have not tried.
