Why can’t I listen to this radio stream with VLC?

Yogesh Tank January 17, 2013

I am using VLC Media Player 2.0.5 and it’s playing all audio and video files properly. I am unable to listen to radio streams even though I am allowed to in the firewall settings.

Every time I am getting the message “VLC player can not open MRL, check log”. I am trying to stream Radio4FM.com.

    You could try to copy and paste the link in open location from clipboard under the VLC Media tab.

    Do you have the newest version of VLC?

    open VLC Tools -> Messages... (set Verbosity to 2) before playback radio and when playback radio fails, see the message it can help to find the solution.
