Hi AVery,

I am a newbie so this is just a starting point for you, hopefully you 
will get some advice from someone with more experience.
I like to listen to smoothjazz with xmms, but don't hold that against me.
This is what I did to setup this station.
Using my web browser (Mozilla) I went to www.smoothjazz.com and selected 
Winamp/iTunes - Modem (for dial-up) as the chosen audio player. You will 
get a pop-up window asking you what application you want to open the 
file with. Choose /usr/bin/xmms (or the location of where your xmms file 
is). xmms should open and play the broadcast material. You can save this 
location (station) in your home directory through  "PL" (the playlist 
window): right-click in playlist window > Playlist > save list and give 
it a name that you will remember. Next time you want to listen, open 
xmms, use "load list" from the playlist window to select the list (or 
station) you want to listen to and hit play, or if it was the last thing 
you listened to with xmms it should still be loaded so just hit play and 
I would imagine that by finding the web addresses for other stations you 
like, you could make yourself quite a comprehensive selection of 
stations to listen to.

I use mplayer for most online videos. It does not work with everything 
but here is the description for it from the download site:

MPlayer is a movie player that plays most MPEG, VOB, AVI, OGG/OGM, VIVO, 
ASF/WMA/WMV, QT/MOV/MP4, FLI, RM, NuppelVideo, yuv4mpeg, FILM, RoQ, and 
PVA files. You can also use it to watch VCDs, SVCDs, DVDs, 3ivx, 
RealMedia, and DivX movies. It supports a wide range of output drivers 
including X11, XVideo, DGA, OpenGL, SVGAlib, fbdev, AAlib, DirectFB etc. 
There are also nice antialiased shaded subtitles and OSD.

Have fun,

Chris Gates
