I read about the http://wiki.mt-daapd.org/wiki/Streaming_Audio so I thought if I created an .url file with this:

64,Silly name,http://www.test.com/silly.mp3

I would get the soundbridge to stream this mp3 directly from the server – of course that would be to easy. What I wonder is this even possible to force the soundbridge to stream an internet radio directly via an url file?

Will it work to create an extra m3u with the url:
64,Silly name,http://www.test.com/silly.m3u

I am trying to create a simple podcast function using only a soundbridge and the fireflymediaserver.

Your second example would work, but it would expect a .m3u/.pls file, not a raw mp3 stream. So yeah, if you made silly.m3u be a playlist pointing to /silly.mp3, that would work.

Find a working .mp3 radio station and wget the contents of the station url — it will be more obvious when you walk through the process manually and see what has to be returned.
