Request for custom streaming URL

Hi,

 

I just purchased a SoundTouch 10.  I'd like to be able to stream from the mpd server on my network and other custom URLs on the Internet but there seems to be neither an option nor app to do so.  This shouldn't be a difficult thing to provide given that the device can already play streaming service URLs.  I can't belive this feature isn't available since it has been present in pretty much every streaming audio application forever.  This is an important feature to me and I am considering returing the speaker because it can't perform this very basic function.  Can you provide guidance on how I can play streams via custom URLs?  "Use the vTuner 'Suggest a station' link" is not an acceptable answer for this scenario.

 

Thank you

Hello gcwilson,

 

Welcome to the Bose Community and thank you for the recommendation. I will sure pass this along to development as a feature request.

 

You can use Bluetooth an option to stream anything that is not implemented into the SoundTouch app as a workaround.

 

Let us know if you have any other questions.

This functionality which is obviously meant to provide Radio service support where not present on TuneIn service has just been added as a new option on the Settings menu of the Soundtouch app, Perhaps I will try this at the weekend.
