Stream music on blank screen

Question

At the end of a movie (or anywhere in a sequence), I want to transition to a blank screen, but provide a music stream from streamingsoundtracks.com (using the .PLS file I downloaded from this site).  Unless someone tells me I'm wrong, I added it as a Video Bumper, type as a "Single file", and specified the PLS file.  It seems to work, however, if I want to "skip it" and move on, hitting PgUp (which is what I thought would advance to the next sequence entry), doesn't stop the stream, and I can't advance.  Is there another way to do this?

changed "movie" to "music"

Hey there! So currently, what you're trying to do isn't something we'd planned for. We do have plans to explore adding a module specifically for use with audio (with a few neat features like making a photo slideshow, or a black screen, etc.), but nothing really exists for that use case yet. The only place we tested audio playlist files is when used with Trivia in the Trivia Module. It's possible that the audio stream is "taking over" the playlist that CinemaVision creates, thereby overwriting the old playlist. That would mean that when you hit PgUp, there's nothing to jump forward to. If you hit PgDn, does it jump back, or exhibit the same behavior? Could we get a log from you just to see what's in it? Technically, the only way to do this right now is to use the Trailers module with some all-black trivia slides, and play the stream behind those slides. That would mean that you couldn't use other trivia, since we currently don't have the ability to specify a trivia folder, which will be coming soon.
