Winamp and BBC radio

Due to network restrictions at work i'm forced to use Windows Media Player to listen to BBC radio. I've noticed that you can drag and drop the 'play this station' link to the desktop and then load this up in Winamp. It works fine and you can save it as a bookmark.

Here's an example mms://wmlive-acl.bbc.co.uk/wms/radio5/5Live_e1s1?BBC-UID=14e87a4b4fd508318a6572473010ec403085feedd060d134242fa9b714a34d55&SSO2-UID=845545f13b58b6323a1fa459d15254ab4ae0d22f2883c169648a2d11d287610d10

BBC's link has changed.

mms://wmlive-acl.bbc.co.uk/wms/bbc_ami/radio5/radio5_bb_live_eq1_sl0?BBC-UID=14e87a4b4fd508318a6572473010ec403085feedd060d134242fa9b714a34d55&SSO2-UID=

To find it again from source, do view source from a bbc radio page and you should find a *.asx page. Run view source on the asx page and you should find the mms:// url. Though if you just through the .asx url at your browser winamp may burst into life and you can just bookmark.
