How to listen.
The embedded player at the foot of the browser window on any HonkRadio.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 HonkRadio.com tab/window is open.
We may introduce a custom app for smartphone/tablet. For now we suggest using 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 appropriate appstore to download something that's really not needed.
Honk #1 formats for popular mediaplayers include…
iTunes and WinAmp.
Windows Media Player.
To use, add the appropriate url to your preferred app. (Some apps will handle more than one of the above).
As we add additional channels, these settings will change and be updated accordingly.
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.
'Current track' refreshes at 60-second intervals, rather than with track-change, and hence sometimes shows info for a previous track.
It's a limitation of the software, and we're looking for alternatives.
So, trust your ears and use your own best judgment… whatever the status message shows, it's unlikely that Seth Godin has hooked-up with Creedence, or that BB King is now giving business advice.
