    I don't find any entry points for setting up streaming from Windows Media Player 11 on an XP(sp3) installation. I click the right places but the next window just doesn't show any entry for streaming.

    From "Library", I find "Monitor Folders" in the place where "Streaming" ought to be.

    I presume the answer implies that Win 7 is what I need. Was going to test it but thought maybe it might work under XP since I prefer using XP for my other work. But I won't be doing streaming so often anyway.

    AFAIK you can stream from VLC with XP.

    Works fine, only wish artist name might be shown in the radio display, not only song title.

    I always try to guess artist, know almost all of the titles by heart...

    I guess you are a lot like me.I would rather listen to music than watch TV.

    Probably more unlike than like: Born 1930, Jazzfan since -45 when we got our radios back from the Nazi. Listening a lot to AFN in Europe. Those were the days. Never get tired of the great swing bands and soloists, and most of the stuff from the 30's through 50's.

    Gues we are off topic, but nice to have meet.

    Cheers, Rolf

    Born 1946 as you can see by my nickname.I like just about any kind of music.
    I was stationed in Germany,Korea and Vietnam and listened to AFN all the time.
    Nice to have met you also.Take care.
