So you're going to pay for hardware and bandwidth, maintain an MP3 collection, and maintain a bunch of scripts, and worry about the legal hoops.
And our job is to click, and enjoy.
Works for me.
Thank you! :)
Well, I think the legal hoops are already covered; we're already paying the license fees. This is actually a *less* complicated situation than the live webcasts.
It's been 404ing for a while now.
Not sure why it exits every now and then... clearly more cron-brand duct tape is called for. It's back up now. (Via ssh on my phone from the park, whee...)
I clicked on the radio link.it offered to open dnaradio.m3u in realplayerand then real player saidrequested file not foundcrebrum.dnalounge.com:8000/radio
suggestions? I'm new to having a computer that can handle a radio stream.
I got the same thing using Winamp.
It was down, try again. (But in general, iTunes or Winamp are better choices for listening to streaming audio than Real.)
Working for me now!!!
radio keeps buffering for me.
but on a side note, MEAT got a great write up this month. <3 MEAT. here is the link
Do you have all the songs pre-encoded, or are you re-encoding these at the appropriate bitrate? The first song played was at 160kbps, but I thought you throttle to 128kbps.
That track was a Psyclon Nine song, if that's helpful.
... As I wrote this, The Start's Hi Flyer started, & incoming bandwidth went up to 160kbps, then lowered to 128kbps, then, eventually, stuttering.
Then The Cruxshadows, Breathe, at 256kbps - stuttering started immediately.
Oh shit, I didn't even think of that... yeah, I need to re-encode them all to be 128k.
But, we have this stuttering problem even with our live 128k stream, so there's definitely a lot of "our ISP sucks" going on here.
I'm guessing you've tested it locally, before the ISP gets it, but you have tried adding some fraction of the rate to the throttle to cover overhead, right?
... and thank you for playing halou.
Nice! I like it quite a bit, actually. Thanks! :-)
Granted, it's 2:40AM PDT, but I've been connected for just about 20 minutes now without rebuffering.

Remedy is back as our weekly friday event
I'm sure someone's suggested this, but have you thought about having a page showing what's currently playing, & pointing at a site or two to purchase the album online?
