    Problem adding a radio station URL to Rhythmbox

    (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 32bit)

    This is my favorite radio station but Rhythmbox won't accept this URL:


    http://radioplayer.magic.co.uk/live/


    A different radio station URL that works is:


    http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/listen/live/r5l.asx


    On the magic website I couldn't find a copy URL option. What's the solution to this problem?

    I checked the page's source and found out that they provide a url for their html5 fallback player that loads when Flash is not available, i'm guessing, so try adding the following url in Rhythmbox, it should play fine
    Code:

    Hope that helps.
