some sites use their own jump links to accomplish things.
By jump link I mean that the link you see is linked to the real url which 
then accesses the stream.
Bill Sparks does this a lot, the urls in the Realplay AV database do this, 
and I believe so does Vtuner.
Radiotime also does something similar.
If you *must* have the true url, use the url finder in RAV or a media 
player itself.
There is an advantage to the jump link concept, as I call it.
The jump link doesn't have to change even if the underlying url changes so 
long as those maintaining the database internally update.

I recall that discussion of Music of Your life; and it was through Vtuner 
that I finally was able to give you something that you could bookmark and 
get to directly.
I wasn't using RAV at the time; you've got my curiosity stirred and I 
should see what the urlfinder does with that VTuner link.
