    Don't forget about the relatively new radiotime app. It's been working great for me. It might have the station you're looking for.

    Are you finding it in the market? If so you should be good. Maybe you need to reboot your phone, then it will download.

    Thanks for the reply, but i feel realy stupid now,all week i have been trying to download "a online radio" and another called "radiotime" without success, i have just been to the market and they are both there now, and i have downloaded them both.
    Fore anyone interested radiotime looks the best app, it has all the stations from around the world i like.

    I used to use Moodio/YourMuze, but when I switched to Droid I found you can't multitask. It uses the Droid's video player. If you hit the home button to do something else it kills the audio.

    Last week I found an application that has the same concept, but it works MUCH better since it's not just a web page. It was called DroidLive, but for some stupid reason they changed to XiiaLive. I can listen to the stations there that I listened to on YourMuze. You can also add new streams pretty easily.

    There is a free version and a paid version. I went ahead and got the paid version because you can increase the buffer time to minimize drop outs. If I remember right the free version will buffer 3.5 seconds. If your connection fades a bit you could lose your radio. With the paid app I set my buffer to somewhere around 20 seconds (I don't know what the limit is). I have much fewer skips.

    so does anyone know how to enter/play a custom URL radio stream in any of these radio apps? which apps let you do this and how do you do it?

    DroidLive
    XiiaLive
    StreamFurious
    AndroidOnlineRadio AOR
    RadioTime
    AOR MMS
    MMSLite
    Other
    ???

    i want to add/stream/play these URL streams natively and directly from the app -

    Bloomberg Radio

    http://www.bloomberg.com/streams/audio/radio_live_a.asx

    mms://a1042.l2489851244.c24898.n.lm.akamaistream.net/D/1042/24898/v0001/reflector:51244

    Hot 97

    http://provisioning.streamtheworld.com/pls/WQHTFMAAC.pls

    THANKS!

    I never found anything that could do mms: or .asx links but RadioTime has any station that I've ever wanted in it already. I just checked and Bloomberg radio and Hot 97 are both available in it.

    Otherwise, A Online Radio should be able to play the .pls one.

    thanks for the reply. the mms URL is just a secondary Bloomberg link.

    1. what # version of RadioTime do you have? paid?

    2. can RadioTime multitask and run in the background?

    3. is it easy to find these stations?'

    4. are you still using Moto Droid?
