I don't know, but if you know the exact URL of the stream then you can fire up iTunes, and then select Advanced > Open Stream... and then paste in the URL.

That might work.

Also, in iTunes Preferences you should set iTunes for Internet Music Playback (there's a "set" button -- click it).

good luck

I can't seem to find the setting in iTunes for Internet Music Playback in the preferences window...

Oops! I just found it. Sorry.

Another way to just check if iTunes is properly configured to play internet streams as all is to just look in the main iTunes window for Radio Tuner. There are quite a few built in presets for streaming MP3 internet radio stations. Test one of those and see if the music plays properly. Obviously you have to have an active internet connection first, but all you should have to do is double click on a station to have it play (you sometimes have to try several stations before you can connect to their server if the internet is busy that day).
