Help. What you need to make radio playing.



Statistics shows that only 1% of listeners have problems with listening (03.03.2017). Every day this percentage tends to 0 (2 years ago it was 15-20%). The following describes what, how and why. Nothing complicated.


To listen radio all you need is modern browser. We recommend Firefox. Canceled support for HTTP/0.9 causes some Internet radio stations unplayable in Chromium based browsers, such as Google Chrome and Opera.
If your smartphone or tablet stops playing radio when a new tab is opened or when the device goes sleeping mode, update the browser. This quirk of some browsers has ceased to exist since the fall of 2016.


Connection to the stream and buffering takes some time, which depends on the stream bitrate and the bandwidth of your internet connection. That is why, the radio can start playing not immediately. Wait a bit.
Most radio stations have multiple streams of broadcasting. Select the best stream for your internet connection and the desired quality.

Possible problems

All streams are checked manually and automatically in the background. But there is nothing eternal and ideal. There is always the chance that at the moment when you want to listen to any radio, it does not play. The reasons can be many.
  1. Old school browser,
  2. Slow speed of your Internet connection,
  3. Problems with the source.
As a rule, if the stream is presented in the catalog and not marked as unstable or absent, than the reason is number 1 or number 2, or number 3 for a short time.
  1. Update your browser,
  2. Stop your downloads if you have any,
  3. Check if another stations are OK,
  4. Try to switch to another stream of the desires station (if it is).
And finally, what could be causing such a phenomenon as «nothing works and it is not clear why» is the Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser. If you are not a member of the MSIE fan club, but for some reason you are using it, we recommend to get rid of this disaster, and you'll see not only this site but the whole Internet transformed for the better.
