CBC radio stream URLs

CBC Radio Stream URLs

Using these URLs, you can listen to CBC radio streams with applications like VLC or Transistor. The files are M3U playlists, so you can use them as-is, edit them to suit your tastes, or use individual URLs.

This playlist contains the .m3u8 URLs from the CBC Listen website, which uses the HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) protocol. The audio stream is broken up into multiple tiny files, which are then fed into the .m3u8 playlist file that delivers them to your computer in the right order. This should work with modern media players.

This legacy playlist uses good old-fashioned MP3 streams found on PublicRadioFan.com. It will work with older programs like Winamp that don't support HLS. I don't know how long these URLs will be around, but they work.

For more details, see my blog post.

I don't know if anyone is interested but the latest Foobar supports a radio panel that has all the working cbc radio stations in mp3 and AAC formats. This is a skin that I just put together that shows the radio panel on the right. You can do a few diffewrnt types of searches and it has many different countries listed that you can listen too.

Nice! Would you mind sharing how to create this skin?

PS - I recently bought a relatively new internet radio - the Sangean WFR-32. It's a little pricy, but does go on sale. It has good sound, plus support for internet radio, podcasts, and things like Spotify Connect. The remote is pretty basic, but there is an app called AirMusic which lets you control everything from a phone via Bluetooth. It will also act as a Bluetooth speaker, and an alarm clock and phone charger.

You can download it from my deviantart gallery, just scroll to the foobar2000 section. https://www.deviantart.com/canuckken/gallery
I could not upload it the way that I normally do as a portable theme but if you follow my instructions you should be able to get it installed, if not I might have to upload it someplace else.
