hey guys, i've been lurking for a long time and have learned a ton from these forums and have setup a wonderful XBMC machine on an Aspire Revo.

There is a site that my wife streams international stations from, http://www.livedesi.tv/, and all the stations seem to be in ASX format. I know XBMC doesn't play them natively, so I used a network sniffer to download the asx file, which is disguised as an ".smi" file. for example

Code:
http://gs2.livedesi.tv/geonewspk.smi

I opened that up in notepad and got this:
Code:
[Reference]
Ref1=http://gs2.livedesi.tv/geonewspk.smi?MSWMExt=.asf
Ref2=http://94.23.156.28:80/geonewspk.smi?MSWMExt=.asf

I put that into a .strm file, and it doesn't work at all. no error message, nothing. am i using the right URL? i saw another post, where it was double hidden, but i don't see anything like that here. any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
so is this not possible? or am i being a noob and doing something wrong? i tried searching the forums and all of them said to open the asx file and get the actual stream URL and put that into a strm file, which I did, but still no go.
