Hello

I have a stange issue.
I can not listen to the live radio broadcasts.
When i hit the play button, it looks like it starts for about one second, then stops again.

I can listen to all the rewinds.. so thats a bit strange.

any tips / suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Forgot to mention.
I have tryed both the HTML5 and the Flash options, and i use the crome browser.

The short answer is not to use Chrome or Safari for the moment. The latest version of both of these have dropped support for the older versions of shoutcast we are using.
I did try an update last night but that went wrong and I had to revert. I'll have to do more testing, but for now you'll have to use another browser or and external player.

Related to this issue?

bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=669800#c6

If so, chromium reps are starting to talk of a roll-back for a few months.

If the site uses shoutcast or a variant, some are reporting that upgrading to V2 is a fix.

Thanks for any efforts possible on this end to make it work, without chrome I am unable to stream to different speakers in the house.

Yes its exactly that bug.
I've replied to it, and I've also implemented some work around so it should work now except in a few edge cases (HQ listeners using Chrome).
I'll keep monitoring the situation and try and come up with something better, but it should be working for most people for the time being.

The ability to cast audio to multiple speakers via chromecast again is much appreciated QGazQ (requires chromium, heh)

Hopefully 256 in future, but this is awesome given the hurdles

Sincere thanks for the work-around and bug report QGazQ o7

Ok HQ should be working in chrome as well now.
Only the external stream links won't, but you shouldn't be using them in a browser anyway, so it should all be working (hopefully).

There's some tidy up I need to do, but nothing too big
