Having hard time tunning in from work?
Is your university/school blocking you to listen to streams?

We have a solution. :)
To further help and assist all listeners and make the experience better, Afterhours would like to introduce friendly links that will allow you to tune in from anywhere, even if your school/work/university/firewalls are blocking you to access other streams.

That would be an ActiveX control so would not be visible in browsers such as Firefox but should work fine in Internet Explorer.

IMO the best way to do it is to use flash, cause most computers have flash

Dan

yeah i need to find someone to make a flash player which will connect to AH :(

doing my best

couldnt you use a generic streaming flash player linked to the m3u playlist??
it would think its streaming an mp3 but it would continuously play the station
unless it wouldnt handle the m3u the same as it does mp3?

java applet might work too, maybe even better, as embedded devices usually can play that too.

xruntime

I'll be fine with java as long as it isnt laggy and bloated and resource hogging, like many applets are

Flash is unoticeable...I can load all these afterhours pages with flash on them and nothing will happen...I load 1 java applet and my computer locks up and @#%^#

I thing I know of a possible solution to the web based player! Maybe Silverlight can do it? I'll post back later and let you know :) Just setting up a VPC so I can mess with it.

I was searching more on it and i found this

Flash does not support packet based streaming of mp3 from the shoutcast server, consequently the mp3 accumulates in RAM and on the user's hard drive. Flash treats the mp3 as a large file download instead of discarding the packets as they load, which is how a player like WinAmp handles shoutcast streams. Accumulating in RAM is not desireable because eventually the mp3 can use up too much RAM causing problems for the end user's computer.

hm whered you find this? i never did any flash coding, but i find it hard to believe that a coding language has such a limitation...

ps: that being said, this flash player DOES leak mem like crazy... just a few minutes of playing and my firefox is up to 2 gig mem usage :wow:

Dan, how about installing this thing at ah.fm/ineed ?

Cause that url is kind of hard to remember :P

I prefer streaming from my browser cause its easy to access and no need for extra programs (if i open it with winamp my playlist/media library gets cleared and i have to readd it later...takes 5 seconds but im lazy)

Hehe, I had that same problem with my playlist.
I solved that by not listening to any other music than AH.

Good suggestion on having it embedded into a page at AH.

Days pass faster with AH ! :music:

I have a question since Ollie and I work as medical secretarys and want to listen to AH at work whenever possible :grinning:. The thing is that were not allowed to install other programs such as winamp etc on our computers since we have different places to sit by every day. WMP doesnt seem to work :( We can however listen through ah.fm/player on most of the computers but the thing is that the volyme in the player is a little bit to "loud" when were listening during typing, if volyme is to loud "in the background" we cant hear what the doctor is saying :lol: :lol: :lol:

Iīm not sure there is something to do about our "problem" but I had to write about it, since Linda is sad that she canīt listen to this MASSIVE event at work right about now :no:

Other than that we are both AHddicts and need AH every day!!! :super: :clap2:

:ah:

This was all from Ollie and Gizmo :hug:
