FAQ: Stream KQED on FreeBSD

If you want to listen to KQED using FreeBSD, install mplayer:

mplayer mms://wmbcast.kqed.speedera.net/wmbcast.kqed/wmbcast_kqed_jan032006_0957_103495

UPDATE: I just discovered the -playlist feature. So, this works even better:

mplayer -playlist http://www.kqed.org/w/streamingfiles/kqed_wmp.asx

I have also figured out how to convert the Windows Media Player stream in to mp3 files, and may set up a system to “record” programs on a regular schedule, at which point I can listen to public radio as I would watch TV on a DVR. (Radio TiVo!)

If anyone might be interested in getting in on a non-RealAudio “NPR audio archive” via a bittorrent setup, I’d love to hear from you.
