Can we get rtmp streams on our Rokus?

Hi All:

Just found a few new online stations with an rtmp stream format I didn't recognize. I haven't been able to decipher any familiar stream url using snooper either, so I thought I'd ask here.

WINK 1240 AM Fort Myers, FL USA

language: English
format: Talk
audio feed: http://www.winkwnog.com/listen_live.shtml
source audio url: rtmp://winkamstream.winktv.com:4028/live&id=winkam (?)

WPTK 1200 AM Fort Myers, FL USA

Hi gcd0865,

no, we can't. RTMP is the acronym for Real Time Messaging Protocol, a "proprietary protocol developed by Adobe Systems for streaming audio, video and data over the Internet, between a Flash player and a server". (Source: Wikipedia, for more information please see here.)

Although the genuine stream in most cases is in MP3 format, there is no way to make it play on the SoundBridge unless the station provides you with a corresponding compatible link.
