Default how can we stream the stillstream way

Hi everybody !

One of the online radio channels I am addict to is : StillStream ..
They stream some great inspirational music ranging fron space music to zen to electronic and ambient
they also support a wide range of players for different plaforms as shown in their front page ..

Personally I use mplayer this way :

$ mplayer http://srv3.electro-music.com:8500
if you are behind a proxy , use http_proxy=none with mplayer

Others may prefer to use rhythmbox or vlc ....

my question is :
how could I stream audio ?
what do I have to provide on my box to qualify it a a streaming server ?

Million Thanks to all contributers ..

For those with IP addresses in the U.S., or a proxy server in the U.S., audio/pianobar can be used as a Pandora client.

2 other options that work with your link and are lightweight
Code:
wget -O - http://srv3.electro-music.com:8500/ | madplay -
and mpd (aka musicpd in FreeBSD) with the ncmpc front end. On my dual core amd both cpu's were around 0.4%. Mpd allows saving stream url's as a playlist. Mpd is also relatively easy to configure in OpenBSD. I store my mp3/flac in a single music folder in my home directory, edit a single line in /etc/mpd.conf to show the absolute path to the music directory, add myself to the _mpd group in /etc/group and set mpd to start in /etc/rc.conf.local.

Hi Jggimi !
Hi Shep !
I typed in the suggested command but it turned :
Cannot write to '-' (Broken pipe)

in fact , if I like some ongoing stream I use the newbie's laziest choice : httrack it .. lol .. it saves current stream .. until you 'CTRL+C' it ..
maybe I 'll learn a good way of doing this from you nice folk .. as usual ..

This works in my OpenBSD system
Do you have wget and madplay installed? You could probably pipe the wget output to another command line mp3 player.

The hyphen at the end of the command also needs to be included. Also, instead of typing it in your terminal the code tags in the post should allow you to cut and paste it.

Thanks Shep , for asking , asking back was the key : I had mp3blaster and mplayer but not madplay .. I installed it and now it works !
so enjoy the stillstream zen echoes ..

mp3blaster works fine as well .. simply I still cannot set volume .. so Mplayer has always been OUT OF GAIA !! bless those neurones that made it ..

I thank you Man !
