I downloaded Wireshark for MAC and do not understand how it works. i watched the video but do not see how to get a URL?

i am looking for streams my customers request to play in the Beautiful Clock Radio app.

I have come across a site that i can not figure out the stream even though they have a iphone stream available.

i click on stream and nothing comes up in wireshark.

Can someone give me a clue how to get this app to work for finding streams?

Thanks Mark

'How to get a URL?' If you mean an URL from HTTP then use Statistics|HTTP|Requests.

From the site you referred to the stream is send using RTMP.

'nothing comes up in Wireshark'. Does that mean that zero packets are captured, or that you can't find the media? In the fist case check your capture setup/interfaces. The second case is likely looking in the wrong place.
