Pepe and Big610 are editors on the stations database, and they work hard , but.... they do not use radio sure.
Big610 even asks "how to play the streams in radiosure", thus he does not posesses the radiosure programm (or he does not use a full computer?, but a smartphone to play ??)
- For Big610: install radiosure, by download (the free) programm ver 2.2.1046 from the site (radiosure/stations/downloads) and install it
- For pepe; same suggestion: do install the radiosure , even the free version, so you can TEST and find out by yourself if station plays opr not in the RS programm (by submit a stream from clipboard to the radio , and so play the stream directly.
Those users wonders why the submissions are rejected somtimes , while they claim "the station plays well", but on VLC player or in browsers.
For that purpose, they do not need the radiosure listing, so I assume they open the manually downloaded rsd file and open it in MSexcell, or a free office programm, for selecting streams; While it is much easier to play the streams by using Radio Sure player, having all features of it then also (recording songs in mp3 format, equalizer for play sound to name a few)

Opening the streams from MSExcel with Firefox as the default browser and the Addon "Tree Style Tab" installed will quickly show you which streams are broken and need work. (free from )

Filtering the MSExcel file for streams containing the text will show only the radionomy streams and almost all of them will stream. Many, however steam JAMENDO LOUNGE rather than the station expected. MSExcel, Firefox and Tree Style Tab together are a fast way to find broken radionomy streams that stream JAMENDO LOUNGE by default.

I know , you use that tool for broken streams, but my goal is, that submissions are made that not work in radiosure, but only in webplayers.
Also that submittors even do not posess the radiosure programm , to find out wether the stream is working in radiosure ( The database finaly is for radiosure, no mather for what purpose individuals are using the rsd file.
If I see a https stream, I always test it in radiosure itself, and if https not works, then try http, and if neither of them works, try to find another stream on the website of the station, and that takes some more time.
Lucky I know the few that I have to watch for not testing in the radio itself , (including new submittors to follow)
Big610 even asked me "how to play the stream in radiosure..." he seems not to know what radiosure really is ....??!!, so I am asking myself "why he is then updating the database, for which use , or how does he use the database ??"- for playing in a webservice maybe ?
Everyone is free in this matter , but we are awaiting at least, that the list of stations works (except outdates that have to be corrected )

I agree with you 100% and thank you for testing approving my submissions.

I did not intend to imply that submitting a new stream without testing in RS was OK - it is not OK. I am always looking for a way to quickly find old streams that are broken and need research. What I had mentioned for testing Radionomy streams results in a list that requires research, not a list to delete without research.

For https and http, sometimes changing from https to http will work directly, other times, they use different ports and the port must be changed as well. Often the http port number is an even number (ending in 0,2,4,6,or 8) and the https stream is an odd number (ending in 1,3,5,7,or 9)
