Endless Audio streaming (Radio)?!


I am new to unity and playing around trying to create a music visualizer for a university project, I would like to pull in a web based radio stream… say from Capital or Radio 1 and create visualizations based on what is playing.
I have the visualization part working fine with just a sound clip, however cannot for the life of me get a stream to work.

I have bits of code:

#pragma strict
var url = "http://icy-e-05.sharp-stream.com:80/kiss100.mp3";
function Start () {
    var www : WWW = new WWW (url);
    audio.clip = www.GetAudioClip(false,true);
function Update () {
    if(!audio.isPlaying && audio.clip.isReadyToPlay)

But this will not work, i have tried both mp3 and ogg stream types with no luck, I believe probably because of the fact the radio stations are infinite streams.

I have read a little about NAudio however and too much of a n00b to be able to get my head round how this might work?

Is what I am trying to do possible?

Any help would be much appreciated!
Thanks, Will

Hi all. A work around for streaming audio is to dispose and reload the url while using the PlayOneShot function. My c# example isn’t perfect but it should give you an idea of what to do.

public class GetStream : MonoBehaviour {

	AudioClip clipa;
	AudioClip clipb;
	bool played;
	WWW www;
	float timer;

	public string url = "http://localhost:8080/stream.ogg";
	public int interval = 300;

	void Start(){
		played = false;


	void Update() {

		timer = timer+1*Time.deltaTime; //Mathf.FloorToInt(Time.timeSinceLevelLoad*10); 

		if(timer>=interval){ 			//if(timer%interval == 0){
			if(www != null){
				played = false;
			if(www == null){
				www = new WWW(url);
			if(www != null){
				clipa = www.GetAudioClip(false,true);

		if( clipa != null ){
			if( clipa.isReadyToPlay && played == false ){
				played = true;

Just attach the script to an object with an audiosource and enter the url of your choice. Hope that helps.

This is working fine even with mp3, but I’ve got a problem with my test. If I put an interval at 10, the music restart every 10 sec and play over the previous one. And if i try at 9999 the first sound start only after 9999.
I need to start as soon as possible and not to restart every n sec.
How can I fix that. Do I need this interval? For streaming. I’d like to use something like a trigger to launch the stream, so if I push a second trigger I need to stop or pause the first music, any ideas?

I’m french graphic designer but less developper and I use unity5.

im used this code and i have error
he saying cant stream MP3 sounds
how to fix this problem?
im not finded any no MP3 radio stations. how to stream MP3 radios?
