Ah, from memory- I heard Yes' 'Close To The Edge', Genesis' 'Stagnation', The Beatles' 'I Feel Fine' and 'Flying' and Captain Beefheart's 'Safe As Milk'...can't remember the rest if there was any.

Streaming is OK here. Good to hear your voice again, and an excellent music selection as usual. Thumbs%20Up

No worries about the shuffling, order is irrelevant, when not composing an album.

Checking around those corresponding in to last night's show, and it appears onlyy your goodself had problems. However, there weren't that number talking via this thread so I'm wondering if they had the same problem early on and abandoned us at 8pm - hence no addional messages. Only other fault reported (from USA) was short drop out at about 8.30pm bst, but that sorted itself out, seemingly a local problem to them. I am concerned if one of regularly can't hear the show, especially now we are trying to improve the quality of output. As mentioned  I was told last night that plans to rebroadcast a recording of my show each week  for ~168hrs, I believe on "on demand" basis is not far off - also suggested I could have a podcast if all of what I played could get copyright clearance...... (a real tough one).

(a real tough one).


There is the possibility that my applications, perhaps upgraded to their latest, suddenly meet problems with the link - though it is rather strange for all of them to refuse to work. Back the previous sessions, it was only a problem of installing codecs and patching the right stream, the right way. It does occur sometimes for streams like this audio (radio) one or videos to crash my Firefox, but it's mostly my fault of putting too many plates in the processor's hands to spin - this case seems exceptional, as it always abruptly crashes or (in Windows Media Player's case) can't upload the stream properly.

Anyway, that's the sole thing I can explain right now.

Hopefully next Thursday there will be no rejections.

The station should be streaming 168 hours a week, so please check at any time beforehand and let me know. Hopefully if I can feed through details to our software expert I can get you good advice before next Thursday evening.

Coincidentally an update only just received from our software engineer:

An update dick... I listened to the cast today and it was awful kept dropping frames all over the shop. I did lots of playing this evening and it is now working better as it is using one software to send multiple streams not two different applications. (I won't bore you with the details), but it now no longer requires media player. Can use any player they (listeners) want, they just need to open the stream. http:\\susvstream.lboro.ac.uk:8080
 
will get the website updated with a generic player as well that should work in all formats. whoop :)
 
i think this should be progress... :).


so please note the link change of address, to repeat:
