Audio streaming from the internet

Is there an object or a way to retrieve in MaxMSP the content of an audio streaming (e.g. an internet radio)?
I’ve come across jit.qt.broadcast (which can be used to broadcast), but I don’t know how to retrieve the audio stream from the internet.

i’m not sure you can capture a stream directly into max.
you could try to use vlc to capture it, and soundflower to get the signal into max.

Yes, I’m using exactly this solution right now, but it would have been much easier (not for me now, but for anybody else who will eventually use the patch) if there was a way to do it directly!
