Music Streaming in Second Life

Do you own land in Second Life?

Do you have the sound of silence running through your land?

Do you need streaming music for your land?

The web contains numerous websites that allow you to stream radio stations, mp3 etc..

I will show you how to stream music from an on-line radio station into Second Life.

How to add streaming music in Second Life

1. Go to your parcel of land.

2. Select from your viewer options World then About Land (shown in the image above).

3. When the About Land information pops up select the Sound tab, now you will see the text field box, this is where you paste a Music URL.. Keep this box open.

Original music from Second Life artists

Second Life has become a special place for musicians over the years, many have had more success in SL than in their real life's. Travelling around Second Life or talking to residents you can find information about lots of free live concerts. If you want to hear how good these musicians are here is the URL for IndieSpectrum Radio, the station featuring artists that perform live in Second Life...awesome stuff.

      @radioautomation: We, my friends and I that is, have been listening to music on Internet radio for a long while.. :) Some of us for quite a number of years. Lots of different streams in lots of different regions all over Second Life, and the choice of music is wide and varied too. Some music matches the region and what they offer, others play music they like. Myself I prefer to chill. :)

      t's now as important to our everyday life as radio, TV and our mobiles. It's the web I'm talking about: - not streaming but web content - potentially great device to help a radio station to bond with existing listeners and to convert those who don't know you. Trinidad Radio
