How do I use the new streaming archive?
Just choose how you want to browse the archive, By Time, By Host or By Show, then click the show you want to hear, then Launch Player. That’s it.
Optionally you can change the stream quality for those on slower networks or if you’d like a higher quality stream.
What browsers are supported?
IE 8+ and all current versions of Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari and Opera. iOS 6+ and Android 2.3+ are supported as well.
Why can I only see the last 14 days?
Due to our licensing agreement, we are only allowed to stream the most recent 14 days of our broadcast. This agreement also specifies that we don’t allow seeking or moving around directly within the archive as well.
What will happen to the old windows media and real archives?
You can still reach them here, but they will be going away soon as the University of Washington is retiring the infrastructure that supports them. They served us quite well for quite a while, and we will miss them. A little.
*Special note for University of Washington listeners running Microsoft Windows (or any Windows listener using the Sophos antivirus program)
Many Windows users at the UW are using Sophos antivirus, which is known to cause playback issues with our player in certain browsers. You’ll know if you’re affected if, after you start the player, you don’t hear any sound for about 1 minute and 40 seconds.
Browsers that are known to be affected include Internet Explorer 8 and 9, and Safari.
Chrome and Firefox are generally unaffected.
