Cannot remember now if the component that is needed is within the foobar core or not, what I do is set up a playlist "streaming", then go to the stations website, copy the address for the stream  (usually mp3, but other formats are supported, like the various ones that paradise radio uses)and paste the address in:  File  - add location.
Works for me.

Sorry, but I´m a noob in these settings: you mean, creating a playlist called "streaming" ?  Am I going to listen the radio, real time ?

Yes. On your tabs go View - Playlist Manager - right click the pop up panel, click new and create a playlist called whatever you like, streaming, radio, net...whatever.
Open  your browser, go to the website of your station, find the streaming link and open it, copy the adress and paste the adress into your playlist.
Means, go back to foobar, open file tab - open add locations and in the small pop up panel copy the adress oft he stream.
Then open the playlist, the stream should show up and click it to open it.

I cannot remember if you have to install the playlist tool dll. or not. Too long since... my component folder just groans...

foobar takes time to learn. So many options...

Thank you, kraut !

I have donne what you said, but when I paste the link  into the "add location" pop up, it doesn´t appear  in the playlist.  I´ve tried this with some radios, so as you have said, it must be missing some dll in Foobar.  I´m gonna look into this.

AFAIK, not all internet radios allow you to play them in your own media player. Those that do usually provide a link to their stream in a form of a playlist file, e.g. super-radio.pls. For example, di.fm has all its playlists in the Listen Now! menu. You don't have to create anything manually. You just open that playlist file in the player. In a different case the station would provide a streaming link, kraut has already covered this.

I tested  two radio channels on your mentioned website http://www.di.fm/ and both work. I just select "open with foobar2000".

di.fm and lots of other online radio works fine on my fb v1.1.7. Your problem looks more like an internet connection problem (not enough quality bandwidth, some kind of filters imposed by isp).

  This reply seems to quote whether I asked for it or not.
I have used the procedure but repeatedly get an unrecognized file type when the
url link-- in my case ancientfm.radio.net is present in the playlist window.

  F2 doesn't want to work at all

If F2 does nothing, just right-click the playlist name (default is "Untitled") and select "Rename..."

ancientfm.radio.net is just the webpage - to add the stream to fb2k, use this link:
http://simplexstream.com:8058/

It doesn't appear on the page - you have to open the page source in your browser (Ctrl+U) and search through it for the stream url. I just searched "MP3" and the second instance was near the desired url:
Quote
...[{"streamUrl":"http://simplexstream.com:8058/","loadbalanced":false,"metaDataAvailable":true,"playingMode":"STEREO","metaDataUrl":"http://simplexstream.com:8058/","type":"STREAM","sampleRate":44100,"streamContentFormat":"MP3",...

thanx newstar for explaining difference between radio website url and station url;  a very different place indeed

ion  :

CTRL+U  >>  CTRL+V  >> paste:  http://simplexstream.com:8058/ >> right-click to make name appear >> CTRL+S to save playlist


looks thus 


PS  and thanx great station  ...    added it to mine ...    you might also enjoy this one here [altho baroque not renaissance]  Audiophile Baroque [320k]  url = http://50.7.173.162:2199/tunein/baroque.pls
