Playing mp3 streams with mpd 24 Sep, 2009

If you’ve wanted to play an mp3 (or aac) stream in MPD, it’s actually a lot easier than you’d think. Just add the url in mpc.

mpc add 'http://sc4.lax.llnw.net:80/stream/kcrw_128aac_live'

If you want to add a station from iTunes, you need to add the station to a playlist, get info on the station, then edit url. Then it is finally copyable.
