    I think that will work.

    I 'tested' the scenario in a virtual machine using Windows Media Player. Technology still got in the way - my audio did not work in the VM and WMP complained, but
    The Internet shortcut did launch WMP which still complained about the audio.

    1) Bookmark this page
    name it mms-b

    2) Open bookmarks
    Right click the bookmark mms-b created in step 1
    select properties from the context menu (at the bottom of the list)
    paste any of the addresses you want to listen to in a stream into the URL [______] textbox
    Click OK

    3) Double click the mms-b bookmark you just modified
    It might take a while to begin streaming, give it a few minutes

    4) Leave it in your bookmarks or copy it to your desktop
    Double click the copy of mms-b on your desktop to test it in that location.

    That's the best I could do, I hope it helps with the issue.

    I tried the radio shortcuts that won't work for me on another computer and they worked normally without any problem!

    Try downloading and unzipping this shortcut: mmms-b.zip
    It has the mms://50.22.223.13/frs_a address in the url shortcut.

    Does WMP give you the error below if you double click the mmms-b shortcut?

    Sounds like a missing codec. Unfortunately WMP often has trouble with different formats. Will you please Download K-Lite Codec Pack and see if that resolves your problem?
