With the availability of faster and unlimited internet connections, people are now more interested in using streaming music radio stations and TV broadcasts. So you can attract a large number of visitors if you could start an online radio station or music portal. Actually, we need large system and bandwidth resources for operating our own online radio and TV stations and its illegal in some cases. However, embedding a radio station is much easier than this process. We will explain the detailed process of starting an online radio station in upcoming posts. And for now we have some methods to embed radio stations in normal websites/blogs, using the browser plugin for Windows media player.
This method of accessing Windows media player audio and video service can be used in both Blogger and WordPress. First you need to download the following embed code to your computer.
Download the above code and paste it anywhere the player is to be appeared.
There are so many parameters that can be used to customize the player. For instance, param name=”AutoStart determines the autoplay of the embedded radio player . Change the text “Stream URL ” with a suitable one.
Here I am using streaming link (http://188.8.131.52:80) of Radio Nimbooda , a 24/7 Bollywood online radio. You need to find the corresponding URL of the radio stream to enable this one your blogger or WordPress blog.
Embedded radio player will look as shown above. Though here I used this code for a radio station, you can also use this for embedding streaming video links. Just change the URL accordingly. Note:Downloading copyrighted music is illegal, but you can hear them online.
