There are many radio stations which stream in mms:// like a Chuvash radio: mms://

Is it possible to listen to in on Android?

From what I recall, mms:// is actually a predefined content provider in Android for Multimedia Messages. It would be different under Android to handle the streaming of radio - perhaps rtsp:// protocol... just saying :) – t0mm13b Jul 1 '12 at 16:19

I know TuneIn can play MMS radio, but from what I see, only ones from a predefined set. ChuvRadio doesn't seem to be there yet. Maybe you can submit your station to them?

Try yxPlayer. Unlike other apps, it allows a user to enter custom streaming URLs from what I can see.

There's also vPlayer that might work.

Thank you it works, but I must have it open. I neither can do anything else. – Anatoly Mironov Jul 8 '11 at 8:52
have you tried pressing HOME instead of back while it's streaming? Ordinarily, that ought to "minimise" an app rather than exit. – Sparx Jul 8 '11 at 16:07
Yes I tried that, too. :( – Anatoly Mironov Jul 10 '11 at 11:13

MX Player also supports mms streams, and it's great because you can minimise the application and keep listening to the radio, as I am right now.
