Figuring out the URL of a radio stream
I like to work hearing music, especially classic music. I also like Radio Clásica, the classical music radio of the Spanish public radio. In rhythmbox it is easy to enter a new radio, just entering the URL of the radio stream in the "Properties" field of the radio.
For this "wireshark" comes handy. This is an application that analyzes and lists all network connections of a system. So install wireshare if you don't have it:
sudo apt-get install wireshark
You have to start wireshark as superuser otherwise it cannot access all the network information:
You have to choose "any" stream, and once the streams are show, in "display filter" write "http.request". Somewhere in the list of connections shown the radio stream URL will be shown, and hopefully it will be easy to recognize.
