I’m supposed to enter a “streaming URL” - what is this?? Sorry for being dense

If I just copy/paste the address at the top of the screen it doesn’t work. 

It says “song not encoded correctly”

 Please don’t laugh :grinning:

Hello @spencertheartist 


Thank you for reaching out to the Sonos Community


I understand that you are trying to add a radio station on Sonos. Since you are getting the error message about "song not encoded correctly", it could be that the station that you are trying to add might have a audio format that is supported by Sonos. We may need a diagnostic so we can more into why the station wasn’t able to be added and I also would like to know what is the station that you are trying to use.

Do you mean the Sonos controller on your laptop to control your streaming? I use TuneIn for BBC stations.
