Internet radio streams not working all the sudden

Postby Art Dustman » Sat Mar 10, 2012 10:15 am

Any idea why internet radio would just stop working. I get an Invalid stream on EVERY station. I haven't changed anything. In fact it was playing earlier in the day, and now nothing.

Must have been tied to an Internet outage that messed up the sound controls. Does a restart of MLServer restore the streams?

Dave,

I just experimented the same problem, but not able to fix it so far. Did you find anything?

No, I have a theory that an Internet outage may confuse the audio control that is used to play the internet streams but I cannot replicate the issue here. Does a restart of the server fix things?

No, it doesn't.

I will try a couple of things next:
1- Re-install MLServer
2- Check my IE settings, as someone suggested, in case some virus modified them. Unlikely as my Internet connection works well.

Neither of those is a likely cause. If you set up LogMeIn and let me look at the server I may be able to determine what is going on.

Same exact problem here, all internet streams are invalid. Restart does not fix issue. Please advise if you determine a fix.

Here's the issue. If you are still using MusicLobby 3.75 then ALL the default Internet Radio streams have stopped working. Back in 2008 when we were doing Mul 3.75 we took the list of Internet Radio stations that were listed in iTunes as the default set of radio stations. All of the URLs for these stations linked through an Apple server. Apple recently turned off that server and that immediately disabled all the Internet stations in Mul 3.75.

So if you are still using 3.75 you will have to manually add some new stations in order to get them back.

In the V4 world the Internet Radio app sources the radio stations from our own database that is refreshed on a monthly basis.

So if you are still on 3.75 that's the reason. If the V4 stations won't play then I need to look at it.

I am using V4 for both MusicLobby and Internet Radio - updated today for current versions. All my Internet Radio favorites (plus some non-favorites that I have tried) report invalid url. None will play.

Will the streams play if you open the URL in Windows Media Player?

I will need to remote into the server to troubleshoot this.

I ran a refresh stations command, and that solved it.
