SL Radio channels on mplayer

Lots of Sri Lankan online radio stations seem to require Windows Media Player plugin or some other plugin when you try to access them over the Internet. Went through a couple of those radio channels finding out which urls that can be used with mplayer. Below are the findings, hope they will come to some use. I currently only listen to YesFM, and YesFM only.

YesFM -> http://174.133.224.53/yesfm
TNL Rocks -> http://220.247.224.89/live
Lite FM -> http://222.165.133.161/live
Y FM -> http://174.133.224.53/yfm
E FM -> http://69.80.238.25
Shakthi FM -> http://174.133.224.53/shakthifm
Neth FM -> http://38.96.148.49:5552
Sirasa FM -> http://174.133.224.53/sirasafm
MAX Radio -> http://75.125.239.34:7045

As an example, to listen to YesFM,
you can use mplayer http://174.133.224.53/yesfm

This link helped quite a lot in finding out the Radio Channel web sites.

Hey thanks for sharing. Now I can listen to radio with mplayer without the radio card. I wonder what protocol it uses. It seems it is pumping a mp3 stream over http. But can't say whether that is the actual case without a proper investigation. BTW you can download the stream just like an ordinary file.
