The followinf method makes it very easy to play any given Stream into VLC and decode the raw stream. To find out the raw stream preform the following steps [1].
This can be a rather daunting task, use Firefox for best results. For example with BNR Radio, the steps look as follows:Open the website, at

  • Find the link "Live Radio", this opens a pop-up window
  • View source of the pop-up window an look for the <object> element.
  • Find the param element with name "url" and copy its "value"; this should be a full or relative URL
  • In this case it looks like:,kpnmms_bnr2&
  • Paste this URL in Firefox; you will get a simple ASX document in return (note: this looks "empty").
  • View source and select one of the URLs starting with mms:, for example mms://

Finally, create a text file which looks like this:

#EXTINF:0,BNR live stream (transcoded)
#EXTVLCOPT:sout=#transcode{acodec=mpga,ab=192}:standard{mux=raw,url=,access=http,sap,name="BNR live stream"}
