Media Streams

SubPlayer allows you to play media streams over IP or URL address, more common examples are Radio Stations online, Video live or audio over internet. You have two options to listen a radio stream or media stream, A Runtime Media Stream and Creating a file Stream. Use Runtime Stream to listen the media stream temporary this means if you close SubPlayer or you change other option from the app menu like Video Library, Music Library or Media Streams the Runtime Stream will be removed.
In this guide I am going to show you how to create a SubPlayer Stream file that holds the following:

You can see all of the information about the broadcasting media later when you load and play it, doing it From SubPlayer menu tap Media Properties and the information will be displayed in the modal box.

When you create a SubPlayer File Stream, SubPlayer app register this file in to the OS making this file available and trusted, the file extension is ".subps" meaning (SubPlayer Stream), since SubPlayer owns this file you can open it from any location from your device and it will be open with SubPlayer by default. You can add more than one Stream information in each file stream you create, this means you can create a playlist of radio station. Supposse you have more than one radio station online and you want to allow your listeners to use SubPlayer app then you can create a Stream file with all of your radio stations in a single file. When your listener open this file, it will be opened by SubPlayer and all radio stations information on the file will be read as separated in the playlist, subplayer detects if the file stream has more than one Radio Station information, if SubPlayer find more than one Radio Station information then the file name of the file will be used as playlist name.

Creating a file stream

I am going to create a file stream sample. Follow these intructions to create all type of SubPlayer stream file. If you don't have SubPlayer app intalled you can install it for free from windows 10 store

  1. Open SubPlayer app

  4. Tap Add Media Stream
  5. Write a file name
  6. Tap Done to create the file
SubPlayer menu

SubPlayer Stream Modal box

When you create this file (when you tap done button) this file is created on Music Library folder on your device, SubPlayer Creates a folder on Music Library folder Named "SubPlayer", inside of "SubPlayer" folder there is a "Streams" folder, Inside of the "Streams" folder are all file Stream you create using SubPlayer app.
When you want to listen all Streams you have created from SubPlayer Menu Tap Media Strems, it will load all streams files you have created.
If you own a Radio Station online and you are creating a media stream file to share with your listeners, you can upload it to your website, when the listener clicks this file on your webiste SubPlayer will be open by default.
