Getting Serious on the Playground

I know, let’s write a streaming web radio application!

Don’t panic; this isn’t as scary as you think. We can get this running with shockingly little code. But let’s do so in a new playground. Close the current playground window, and use File > New > Playground to create a new playground. Call it WebRadioPlayground. Keep the line that says import UIKit, but delete the var str = "Hello, playground" line, and replace it with the following:

1: import​ ​AVFoundation
2: let​ url = ​URL​(string:
3: ""​)
4: let​ player = ​AVPlayer​(url: url!)

Nothing will happen just yet, but hang in there… ...
