How to listen.

Listen in a variety of ways, including browser and apps.

Browser.

The embedded player at the foot of the browser window on any UplineRadio.com page should enable continuous play while browsing the site.

And, if you open a new window or tab to browse elsewhere, it should continue playing for as long as the UplineRadio.com tab/window is open.

We also have an alternate player.

Apps.

You can listen with popular mediaplayer apps which are likely already installed.

It's simple and effective… and of course, in handling audio from a variety of sources (rather than a single site) doesn't require yet another trip to the appstore to download something that's really not needed.

Turn back time…?

Our broadcasts are live, and can't be paused or rewound.

The 'start/stop' button is not 'pause'.

On 'stop', the live stream disconnects.

On 'play', it reconnects and resumes where the stream currently is (not where it was stopped).

Players sometimes cache a few seconds of audio, which may play on resuming after 'stop' and then 'jump' to the live stream.

Now playing…

'Current track' info sometimes shows info for a previous track.

It's a limitation of the software, and and we're looking for alternatives.

To prevent server overload, it refreshes at 30- or 60-second intervals, rather than with track-change, and stops updating after a fixed period (currently an hour, although we may reconfig this).

Using iTunes may be a good idea—updates are instant with track-change, and don't stop after an hour/other time period.
