  Description     : SlimServer plugin for streaming radio stations, especially bbc stations

 A BBC Radio Stream Plugin

AlienBBC is a plugin for slimserver, the software platform used by the
Slim Devices line of networked music players.

It is primarily designed to allow the user to listen to BBC Radio
streams but also adds the ability to listen to any RealAudio stream.
Currently, it is capable of parsing and playing the following resources:

    * All the main BBC Radio 'Live' streams
    * The BBC 'Listen Again' Audio on Demand content
    * All Available BBC Radio 2 Content
    * All Available BBC Radio 4 Content
    * The BBC7 Audio Archive
    * The Available BBC Local Radio Stations
    * Radio 5 Live Audio Archive
    * Some of the ABC Content (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
    * A number of other streams, suggested by AlienBBC Users
    * For a complete list of stations see here

In addition, the code will also parse any 'AlienBBC Playlists' (formerly
'AlienStream' playlists) available, and provides a more robust
environment for the playing of those streams.
