So I'm trying to capture the radio stream from a radio station called "The Peak". It's a great station, but I'd love to be able to play it in my local music player instead of via their website popup.

The problem is, as far as I can tell the http address of the actual stream seems to have some sort of code on the end of it that changes every so often and not including it in the address does not seem to work. But this is the first time I've used Wireshark, so it's entirely possible I'm doing something wrong.

If anybody feels like taking a look at it and deciphering whether I'm just being dumb or not, it would be super appreciated, thank you!

This is the address of the stream's website:

Without having looked at it, it is likely they append some sort of session ID as a parameter to the URL. That's probably to do with the internal workings of the web app.
