Great Online Streaming Directories






I’ve spent a bit of time making around 200 quick shortcuts for my own use to launch various online radio and video streams. As I was doing so, of course I noticed that many of the links I have here have become outdated. (Which is one of the things I hate about online video/radio… you would think that there would be an advantage to keeping your content at the same place over a long time – much like a radio frequency.) Anyway….. I may make this batch of launchers available here in the future, for the moment though I just wanted to make a note of some of the really useful sources in compiling some of these. Of course, I’ve used much of the content I have here….

Anyway…


Radio Time This is a neat site for being able to find shows that are currently on, or stations that are near you. When available they can also find program listings of what are on (really neat feature btw.) So… if you’re looking to hear a particular radio show you can search for it here.

Along the same lines – but with a strictly public radio bent is… public radio fan. I really like this site – you can search for shows on now, non-music/music and it’s not just US public radio, but international broadcasters as well. Really, this is a great place to discover some great streaming radio content.

multilingual books has a good listing of online radio and tv streams. The link is to their Spanish page, but they do have other languages (although they seem to leave out English…)

listenlive.eu – external services – this is a good listing of national broadcasters news streams. Of course, listenlive.eu has a good listing of radio stations broadcasting from Europe just as usliveradio.com is a good resource for US radio. They also have companion sites for New Zealand, Canada and Australia. One of the things I like here are little icons denoting different streaming formats and identification of the stations format.

Radiostationworld – is another great reasource along these lines.

Probably one of the more comprehensive listings for video/audio content is delicast – it seems as though there are very few dead links at delicast – which is tremendously helpful as the content streams can change frequently.

Another newer place I ran across is squidtv.net.

beelinetv.com – is another good resource, although I did find a lot of older (broken) links. I can entirely relate though because it can take quite a bit of time to find all of these and then they change…..

One last resource outside of google search is wwitv.com – although there were several dead links there as well.

I really hope that in the next ten years more of these content streams will come to be more stable. I’m a bit annoyed that so many are locked up in a flash player embedded in a web page, but that seems to be the shape of things at the moment (at least it’s usually cross platform windows/mac/linux and not some activex windows only plugin.) I don’t know when I’ll be using these to update the pages here, but maybe it won’t be too long.
