I listen to/record several streaming radio shows, but they have moved towards disconnecting you if you are not active at the pc, & you have to click on a "continue" button on their player after a period of time to stay connected to the stream.

Does anyone know of a program to stay connected to a streaming web player? I have tried a couple of mouse click programs that didn't work...

Any/all suggestions welcome!
Thanks! :thumbsup:

One would have to know what their code implies by "active at your computer" is this something that pops up even if you're actively using your computer? Or is it only something that occurs if you haven't touched your computer in some time?

Quick search in google for "anti idle programs" reveals this: http://www.soft32.com/download_12845.html

Thanks for the link, fueL. In the meantime, I found a solution. Winamp is able to tune in many radio stations/sttreams, and I understand WMP can do the same thing, although I haven't used it.

In Winamp, you tune to what you want to listen to, press the "repeat" button & it will stay connected forever.
