    Is it possible to listen to online radio stations VIA the PS3 ??

    I can access the stations website via the PS3 web-browser, but the 'listen now' link doesnt work.... i have the option to click 'listen with winamp/WMP/ITunes' but obviously these arent used by the PS3.

    Any ideas ?? Can i stream it thru my Laptop to my PS3/HifI as i would normal MP3's ??

    Thanks

    At a guess the version of flash the website works on is newer than the version on the PS3; probably a case of waiting for a sony update.

    In general embedded media playback will not work on the PS3 as most websites use a much more current version of the embedded playback software, for example Flash. The PS3's browser is not as up to date or as robust as standard computer browsers and untill Sony decide to update it through firmware most content will not work.

    The only way i could get most online radio stations to work was to stream them from my PC to the PS3 using Tversity, not an ideal solution but better than nothing.

    It would be great if you could watch BBC's iPlayer.

    Give tvcatchup.com a go, it will have bbc if you are a UK resident. I have had a couple of problems with watching it on the PS3, but it does work most of the time. Handy site for the PC/laptop anyway.
