The article ......
Play Thousands of Online Radio Stations with Shoutcast in VLC, was a nice little tip and much appreciated : )
I just wanted to add that you can take it a step further and record the stream.
Once you're all done following the instructions mentioned in the article above .....
Right click on the station of your choice and select "save"
In the next window that pops up - select a destination folder and
*NOTE: name the file and add .mp3 to the end (ex: musicstream.mp3)
- Tick the option "Display the output" to keep the music going while its saved
- Select a container from the drop down to the right of "Profile" (i just choose Audio - mp3)
Hit the Start Button. You're done.
