my favourite radio stations – a link collection for using on the go/mobile

why this?

when egofm (my favourite german radio stations) stopped supporting my mobile operating system (ios 5) with their app i looked for the direct link to their stream. i was using direct links for my other favourite radio station somafm for several years and thus created a site with direct links to the streams of both radio stations for easy access on the go using my mobile (iphone). after testing the links with other operating systems i noticed that you need an app to playback the streams on android or windows phone .. so no guarantee that it works on any other operating system out of the box …

for whom?

i originally created it for my private use only. but as some friends asked for the link i thought i could as well make it public.

the link

http://radio.gpunktschmitz.de

howto playback

iphone

using the iphone the streams are played with no additional software needed.

windows phone (8 or later)

when you tap on one of the links you will be presented with a selection of apps that are supposed to be able to play those streams. install one of them and give it a try (i had issues with egofm lately .. dunno what’s wrong there).

android

as i don’t own an android device this is only a suggestion/wild guess as result of some google searches. there is an app named servestream which is said to support the streams.

enjoy the music!

  1. Hi there fellow nermbercher,

    when i try to open the streams with VLC, i get prompted a login and password field for Icecast authentication.

    Do you know about this problem and how to solve it? Thanks in advance.

      1. Hi,
        forgot to mention: I get these errors with ANY egoFM stream. SomaFM works fine.

        Tryed in windows as well as linux.

        Maybe the links only work with german IP addresses? Currently Im not in germany (even outside EU).

        Greetings
