[icon-discuss] Re: Streaming media from music websites

As long as you can launch an MP3 stream, the icon and braille+ do support 
streaming audio.  Sites where the audio automatically plays, like www.jango.com 
are not supported because the flash player is required.

Howdy,

From my limited experience the Icon cannot support listening to those music 
files nor will it 
support streaming radio.  Many of these files require the use of the Flash 
Player from 
Adobe.
