-Landowners in Mobius Grid can stream music to their parcels to be enjoyed by anyone who visits their land. If you own a parcel of land, you can set a "Music URL" specific for your land. This "Music URL" can be MPEG-audio (.mp2, .mp3) and Ogg Vorbis (.ogg) from streaming servers or a basic web server. Anyone visiting your land in Second Life will automatically hear the music you wish to share with them.+Landowners in Mobius Grid can stream music to their parcels to be enjoyed by anyone who visits their land.

 +===== Additional Notes =====
 +Please keep in mind that the audio streams come directly to your Mobius Grid viewer, they do not get streamed by Mobius Team's servers. None of this content comes via Mobius Team's servers at all, so performance issues with streams are completely outside of Mobius Team's control. Some streams reach a maximum number of listeners and then accept no more. Some have poor connections and may stutter or stop.
 +
 +Most internet radio stations will provide a playlist link (.pls or .m3u) file, which will trigger your local mp3 player to start up and stream music on your computer. In Mobius Grid you cannot use playlist file links, instead, you require the specific address of the music stream. This information is contained within the playlist file, therefore if you open the playlist file in notepad or similar, you can see the actual music stream (usually listed as File1= or File2= in the file).
 +
 +===== A few important things to remember: =====
 +  * Legal Issues: If you choose to stream your own music into Mobius directly or using a streaming relay host, the content and any copyright/​royalty fees and any other possible issues are your responsibility.
 +  * To hear streaming audio, remember that you need to enable the options on the Audio/Video tab of your Preferences (Me > Preferences) in the Mobius Grid client.
 +  * If there is an invalid URL in the "Music URL" field on the land, you won't get an error message in Mobius Grid (you'​ll simply won't hear anything). Try double checking the stream in an external player such as Winamp, foobar2000 or iTunes to make sure it is the correct URL and actually broadcasting,​ and that it has not run out of available streams for listeners.
 +  * You can only change the Music URL directly on land that you own or on group land when you are an officer.
 +  * You can stream MPEG-audio (.mp2, .mp3) and Ogg Vorbis (.ogg) from streaming servers or pre-recorded sessions/​tracks from a basic web server.
 +  * Streaming directly from an audio file URL (as opposed to a live streaming URL) will play the file once, but not loop it.
 +  * It is possible for a landowner to create a scripted object that anyone can use to change the streaming music URL.
 +  * Can't get your Shoutcast stream to work? If your stream URL looks like http://​xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:​8000/​ remove the trailing slash: http://​xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:​8000 Stream URLs typically have a port number like :8000 in the example above. And remember, currently you cannot use playlist files (.pls/.m3u) in Mobius Grid.
