Soundbridge plays stream, but PC cannot??

Thu Feb 16, 2012 3:18 pm

loudcity.com/stations/a-hawaiianrainbow-com/files/show/64listen.pls

That's my nappy-time station.
Plays fine on my soundbridge, but can't get it to play on any computer I've tried. Tried WMP, VLC, and WINAMP to open any of the available streams from loudcity.
The link I posted is how it is in my presets.

Anyone know what's going on?
(I tried disabling firewall too)

It played with iTunes on my computer. VLC, too. Are your speakers muted maybe?

Try the corect URL: http://www.loudcity.com/stations/a-hawaiianrainbow-com/files/show/64listen.pls. Not all players will handle your "truncated" variant.

Thanks so much for the replies. Made me realize it had to be something on my computers. Turns out it was. Peerblock is running, but is supposed to allow all http connections. For some reason it was blocking loudcity. I've made an exception for that address and now it works fine!
