Hi Vadim,

Sorry, but I can't reproduce your problem: I'm able to add the radio without problems. Here are the detailed steps to add and play it:

1. Open Rhythmbox and click on the menu Music→New Internet Radio Station...
2. Paste the URL of the radio and click Add
3. In the sidebar, select the "Radio" item (in the Library section)
4. You should now see the list of all the available radios, your should have the URL as a title, select it
5. Click Play and enjoy.

If you're still unable to use the radio, could you please tell me the exact step that fails for you?

Thanks,
Andrea

It seems the last one, it cannot start playing. Clicking it a bunch after
waiting results in 'Couldn't start playback - Internal data flow error.'

Please, open a terminal and type:

  dpkg -l | grep gstreamer0.10

And post the output here.

Note that google chrome can play it back fine:
http://ubuntuone.com/p/CfE/but I think it doesn't use gstreamer.

Yes, chromium doesn't use gstreamer.
You are using the same plugins as me with the same versions. It looks to me like a bug. Would you mind opening a new one?

Can you help with this problem?
