    Does anyone know a good online radio widget or website that can work seamlessly on Mac?

    I'm not in the Philippines and I miss listening to Philippine radio, Magic 89.9's Good Times and Boy's Night Out in particular! :D

    I installed Flip4Mac so Windows Media Player-compatible streaming can work on Safari... but the audio reception sucks! The audio streaming I get is usually played in staggered output and often rewinds to snippets I've already heard. I've also tried other widgets such as RadioTuner among others, but the results are the same. Can anyone help me? Or does anyone know a site that plays Magic 89.9 quite seamlessly? By the way, I have two fast Internet connections, so I don't think that's the problem.

    can you try Fstream? The only reason I don't use this is because international throughput in Malaysia is way below than what we have there in the Philippines. Before fstream, I've used VLC to connect to Magik 89.9 using Globe's visibility modem. It doesn't have any pause as long as you maintain 3G connections.

    Interested here as well. My kid, who loves David Cook, wants to listen to Magic 89.9 through Mac.
