    Exclamation Streaming mp3 for online Radio

    Hi Guys,

    I want to develop a j2me application which will play mp3 stream.

    http://www.radiodhaka.net/ is an online radio station. its ip is

    if you see the page source of the radio station..
          <object id=MMPlayer1 codebase=http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=5,1,52,701 type=application/x-oleobject height=50 width=400 align=absmiddle classid=CLSID:22d6f312-b0f6-11d0-94ab-0080c74c7e95> 
    <param name="FileName" value=""> 
    <param name="ShowControls" value="1"> 
    <param name="ShowStatusBar" value="1"> 
    <param name="ShowDisplay" value="0"> 
    <param name="DefaultFrame" value="Slide"> 
    <param name="Autostart" value="true"> 
    <PARAM NAME="volume" VALUE="50"> 
    src="" width=400 height=50 volume=150 autostart=true loop=1 
    align="absmiddle" type="application/x-mplayer2" 
    showcontrols=1 showdisplay=0 showstatusbar=1 > </embed></object>
    I want to play the radio station by my application.

    For that reason I have tried in different ways..

    First i tried to use the to open the input stream.
    Here is the code..
    // establish a http connection with remote server
     streamConnection = (StreamConnection) Connector.open( "" );
     // send the HTTP request
     inputStream = streamConnection.openInputStream();
     player = Manager.createPlayer( inputStream,"audio/mpeg");
    but it will show the error.." response does not start with HTTP it starts with : ICY"

    I have googled some.. then some advice me to use socket..
    Then I have use the following code..
    // establish a socket connection with remote server
     streamConnection = (StreamConnection) Connector.open( "socket://" );
    then it will show the error " Couldnt' read from socket"

    Then I use the following url by locating the playlist file..
    streamConnection = (StreamConnection) Connector.open( "" );
    then it will show no error but nothing was played.
    But when I open "" by real player or quick time player then it will play the songs as the radio.

    What should I do now?
    please show me a way.

    thx in advance.

    the problem is that it's a stream from an Icecast server (the ICY part), I'm afraid the player has no idea what to do with this header and then just simply throws an exception...
