If you want to keep internet radio stations as a playlist and play with ncmpcpp, it is easy to make your .m3u files. What you need is the streaming address to the station you want to play.
Works with many formats as below just fine the streaming address open on blank file save the address to this file save as .m3u Thats it just drop them into the playlist folder of ncmcppp they should appear on screen 2.
For files pls you have to do an extra action. As an example we will try a station that I really like, an independent radio station in New Jersey, on their page we find the .pls format, which I have downloaded and its content is like this:
cat jjj.pls <<<this command opens the playlist to revile to address.
FBi Radio.m3u FBi Radio = http://stream.fbiradio.com/stream.mp3 jjj-nsw.m3u TripleJ nsw = http://live-radio01.mediahubaustralia.com/2TJW/aac/
This is good place for address’s fmstream
