Hello Kevin and listers, To clarify the situation someone else will be operating the actual stream from his equipment. What I was hoping to do is to include URLS of other content in the file to be included on the Web site that would play if the stream is not operating. Again I'm not the one doing the actual streaming. I was hoping to find scripts that could tell the Web browser to play one of the other URLS in the playlist if the stream was inactive. This is a URL to another server where the actual stream is originating. I hope that makes more sense.

Then you could play stuff into your stream.
