Ok, I got the URL you PM'd (http://local.trio.ee/ot/mp3/mp3player/elmarwmp.html
) and opened it in my desktop browser first. It did just open a WMP plugin and started an mp3 stream, but it took quite a while to buffer at first, and kept needing to pause and re-buffer every minute or so...so it looks like the feed isn't that stable to begin with.
Now, I tried opening that url directly in WMP on the phone, and it wouldn't play it...it started to open, then just gave an "error has occured" message and wouldn't play it. So, even if there is a 'wmp plugin' for opera (I've never seen one), it probably wouldn't help in this case since the onboard WMP doesn't seem capable of playing it anyway.
Some of the other common media players (TCPMP/Coreplayer, nitrogen, etc) might be able to open that url and play the stream, but I don't have any on hand right now to test. Each of them has an option to "open URL", just find that and put that address in and see if they can do it any better.
EDIT: The stream that the player at that URL starts is this: http://striiming.trio.ee:8008/elmar....mar&format=mp3
. I tried that in WMP as well, it said the file was corrupt or in a format it couldn't play. Opera offered to open the file, and did play the music, but it only played the current track being streamed (that stream seems to serve up a rotation of ~3MB mp3's) once it finished downloading the whole mp3.
