Having troubles getting the player to come up? Here are a few hints.
First, give the system at
least one minute to begin streaming. It really can take that long.
Most important, turn
off your popup blocker to enable the player to load.
With most browsers you can hold down the CTRL key, then click the "Listen"
link and it will
bypass the browser's popup blocker.
You may also go into your browser's Tools menu and "allow" or
"whitelist" popups from kcradio.com and streamaudio.com
If you're using a toolbar popup blocker make sure that you allow our
sites' popups in the toolbar as well.
We're streaming our audio
using a Windows Media system, so your computer or mobile device
must support Windows Media. If you're on a Mac, you'll want Flip4Mac
to play Windows Media files.
It's free, and available here.
Once you've loaded Flip4Mac, open QuickTime, go to "File", then
Copy and paste this link into the URL line: http://www.streamaudio.com/listen?station=kcra_ir
Give it at least 15 seconds to buffer, then press the "play"
button on the QuickTime player.
You may also use iTunes. Just go to the "Advanced" menu,
click on "Open Stream" and paste this link into the box:
Then find KCRA-IR in your iTunes list and double-click. Content should
begin playing in 15-20 seconds.
Or you can just try forcing QuickTime to play
the stream here.
Here are several links to try...not all links will work with every computer,
so when you get one to work, be sure to bookmark it.
Using Linux? Copy the
link from the "Listen Non-Windows Players" button. In RhythmBox
Music Player Press Ctrl + I paste the URL of the station.
For Amarok press Ctrl + O (add stream) and paste the URL of the station
If you've tried each of the above links and still are unable to hear the
station, please email
