Possible mp3, but I think it depends on which media format you want to use e.g. Windows Media Player etc….. etc….

I hope this is of some help.

I don't think its mp3.
Acually I mainly want to find out what Shoutcast Internet Radio Stations use.

Many of the sites I visit use Real Audio, but Live365 for example which I listen to for hours on end, uses MP3, they have their own player that can be downloaded. Others use Windows Media format, so I guess you just have to ask the station concerned.

Yes - Thanks for the advice!
I have spent a long time checking out the Shoutcast site and now have found out the format at last! It is Mpeg.
