    Problem with Radio Shortcut Addresses


    Hello!
    I have a problem with radio shortcuts that I created a few months ago. When I double click a shortcut addresses to listen to as usual the error message below appears.
    I tried to recreate them again, but always the same result.
    the only way I can play them is copying the addresses and opening Windows Media Player => File => Open URL, I then pasting the addresses.

    I can't figure out why the shortcut links of the radios don't work any more !

    I'm not sure what a radio shortcut is - Radio is most likely a poorly translated word.
    Is there another word you could use to describe the shortcut?

    Is it possibly a play list?

    Thanks for your reply.
    what I mean is the Shortcut that you can create by right-clicking in the desktop => New...in a step you can copy and paste a link of a radio like 'mms:cnn.com.livestream'. that I called Radio Shortcut Link or Address.
    I hope the translation is better now.

    Could you post a link to the radio station.

    What you posted here does not look right.
