New Beta Streaming Archive FAQ

  • Why a new streaming archive?
    • We have created a new player that works off a new version of our streaming archive, and would like to get your feedback on it.
  • Why is it in “Beta”?
    • We’re still in the testing phase of the player, and would like to see what your think of it before we retire our current streaming archive.
  • What if I have problems with it? Or suggestions? Or both?

    The program had much more overlap to the prior show than usual. It was not pleasant to listen to!

    The song information did not display at all. Overall unsatisfactory.

    Hmmm. I love the concept, but it doesn’t seem to be working in Chrome. (It says it’s playing, and the timer progresses, but I don’t hear anything.)

    I can’t seem to get any of the streaming archive to play.
    I tried the beta in desperation.

    Working great in Firefox 11.0 for Mac OS. Listening to J√≥nsi and getting excited about my trip to Iceland this summer! The thing I miss most about living in Seattle is waking up as the “John in the Morning” crackled through the tinny speakers of my AM/FM Radio. Thank you, KEXP for all your hard work.

    The Streaming Archive Player Beta doesn’t include Michael C. Wellings’ technological and world famous marvel, the uncompressed audio stream. Without that, the player gets a grade of D-.

    Working fine for me on Chrome. Listening to John in the Morning at 9pm. Good stuff. Playlist works fine too.

    It works pretty good on an iPhone 4. I don’t always get a chance to stream the broadcasts during the day so it is pretty cool to be able to stream archived shows on demand. Looking forward to being able to replay shows while driving in the car.
    My only request would be, if possible can the streaming be able to start at anytime instead of just based on start of a show. There have been a couple times where I paused the program and when I restarted the music it restarted from the beginning of the program.
    Keep up the great work and the development. KEXP is the best station and now I can really hear what I want, when I want.

    I guess I should have just looked at the URL listed when I loaded the streaming player. If you want to listen to listen to a different time just change the time.

    Does the player support mobile browsers? The page loads and the timer ticks, but I can’t hear any music on either iOS/Safari or WindowsPhone/InternetExplorer.

    Works great for me on chrome + linux (ubuntu). The old version required windows iirc – boo!

    I like it, but it’s not showing me that I can select any time I want. That’s a must-have feature, but maybe you are not running it in the trial. It’s perfect for when I’m catching up on the Roadhouse.

    I’ve been using the beta in Chrome and it works very well.
