Re: Primary and secondary radio streams?

Forgot to mention- Jazzfan documents why is is important to document more than one stream: sometimes one will stop working, but others will not.

Re: Primary and secondary radio streams?

I agree with most of what you said, Fonzy, but it is a complicated topic. For example, MP3 streams don't use much compression and require a higher bandwidth than AAC streams to deliver the same sound quality, so higher bit rate does not mean better sound. Another example is HLS streams that change t...

Re: 101.ru

The link https://101.ru/radio Shows categories of personal (user) stations, and then clicking on a category shows a list of stations within that category. Each station has a 6 digit unique identifier and without that identifier, it is hard to tell whether the station is already in RS. Most of the st...

Re: Avoid " ' " character in titles - RS does not accept the " ' " character in its webpage searches

Hi Jazzfan, The searching in the RS app with the " ' " character (ALT39) works, but searching on the RS webpage to find it and update it does not work. I found that there are two similarly characters that visually appear the same but do work for searching on the web page, (ALT0145) and ALT0146. Ther...

shoutcast.com and DNS servers

A couple months ago, I had marked a number of stations as Dead that were not dead. The streams were from from the shoutcast.com domain. The stations played for others and when I checked the stream on my phone, (a different ISP), they also played fine. I switched my DNS server from Adguard to Google ...

German stations - use addrad.io rather than addradio.de stream

Right now, we have 249 stations in RS with a stream from "addradio.de". All are from Germany except for one from Luxembourg. If you wish to reduce maintenance and broken links, when adding or updating German stations, try to find the shorter links from addrad.io They expand to much longer links that...

Re: RADIO STREAMS order of bitrates

regarding https and http I've corrected thousands of streams in the last month. What I have seen is that many broken streams are https streams that had been edited to with the "s" removed before submitting to RS. That had been fine, and I am assuming they were tested and retested when approved. Many...

Re: RADIO STREAMS order of bitrates

Thank you, Fonzy. If you use HLS (Http Live Streaming) you don't have to worry about different port numbers. With HLS, the fastest stream is automatic and adjusted as bandwidth adjusts. It also restarts automatically when there is a brief lost connection. It works by sending small files as fast as y...
