Web radio support

Webradio player

The stream24 web player combines newest HTML5 technologies with Flash fallback and jQuery in one player and allows you to receive MP3 radio live streams in browser on

  • Desktop-PCs, laptops (Windows, Mac & Linux)
  • Tablets and smartphones (iOS, Android, Windows Phone)

without installation of any additional programs or apps before.

The "responsive web design" implementation allows an adjusted display on small smartphone screens (in portrait format).

The individual player code for your radio hosted by us you will find in the customer area.

stream24 Webradio Player

The META-data (broadcast, title) are read directly from the stream server and are updated automatically cyclically. The web player is accessible as pop-up window over the Web radio tune-in box, but you can link directly to it as well.

The web player plays MP3 live streams. AAC and aacPlus v2 (HE-AAC) streams are not fully supported yet across all system platforms.

Note: On Android devices loading of the radio stream (buffering) can take more than 10 seconds.

1 The correct recognition of the stream status and META data on external Icecast servers requires that the mountpoint is non hidden (configuration: <hidden>0</hidden>). The file status.xsl must be available inside the "web"-directory as well.

2 The automatic detection of public META data of foreign Shoutcast2 servers requires server version "2.4" or higher.
