kitchen piper Radio BRITFOLK hits the net (55* d) RE: Radio BRITFOLK hits the net 27 Jun 05

Just found this thread! So much interest already! The site is still under development and being tested at the moment, so please bare that in mind!

I noticed a few questions about listneing to the audio. It's been a long journey with all the licensing issues and funding. In a nut shell, until Radio Britfolk has < exaggerate > billions < /e > of logged in users a streaming server can't be afforded. So ways round this have had to be worked out. I know that Phil has spent weeks and weeks building and designing and toiling and sweating over this and deserves a millions pints of beer! It's been done using embedded and hidden code stuff (very geeky) ... I'm wittering ... I'll get back on track....

As George said I've offered to do some support stuff, I am a mac user so for PC stuff it sometimes might take me a few moments to get answers. In a nut shell I can tell you that if you're software is basically up todate there should be no problem. Real Player works best for me, but you do need to be up to date.

As a mac user I use Quicktime for mp3. There is an issue with QT7. If you have QT7 the mp3 won't work. I don't know why, but I'm hoping it's a bug that will be fixed soon!!!! Downgrading to QT6 makes it work just fine. Here is a link for QT for PC

So far this QT7 issue is the only problem that has come through to me. No-one else has said they have any problems. So once you've checked to make sure that you're up to date and it still doesn't work, then PM me.

Happy Listening!
