Verified 2275 on clean installs

Is there any way to also add it into existing MM5 installations?

There's a reason for the directories that were chosen: they allow the user to play content within MediaMonkey. The directories above along with many others just play within a browser and in some cases steer the user towards their own proprietary player.

Unless I'm misunderstanding, these items should be removed:
http://dir.xiph.org/
https://directory.caster.fm/

I re-reviewed the sites you proposed and unlike the 4 existing directories (Internet Radio, Radio Forest, Radio Cast, Shoutcast), which all have obvious m3u/pls links that can open up in MediaMonkey, the two you'd proposed (xiph.org and caster.fm) don't. Even after you've told me that they have such links, I can't find them.

If there's an easy way to d&d stations from xiph.org so that they're playable in MM it would be good to document (directly in the online help).
