Frequently Asked Questions

Problems listening to a radio? Find your answer here or send us your question.

Why can’t I tune in?

You will probably have no problem if your desktop system runs the latest Google Chrome or Firefox browser along with an updated Flash player plugin.

If you can't listen to a radio, it probably means the station is full of listeners and can’t accept more users at the moment. If this happens more often, it might be a problem with your internet connection. If you can never tune in it, probably means you’re behind a firewall that doesn’t allow radio streams. You may want to read some general instructions describing how you can install several players.

My favorite radio has been deleted

Sometimes internet radios just stop streaming. Either because their server is down or full of listeners. In this case the radio is automatically removed from filtermusic directory. When the problem is solved the radio is listed again.
