Usually, I just come to the site and click on the 'Play Music' button. However, the player works for about 1 song, then stops. This happens in IE, Chrome, and Firefox. I've also tried using Windows Media player using the URLs under the 'Listen' selection. However, I get the same result.

Hello, Legolas! I have personally experienced that issue for about a month, now. And just like you, it doesn't seem to matter the browser or medium. I have to reload every song or two. I've heard others express they are having the same issue. When RR came back a couple months ago or so, I didn't seem to experience this issue much for about the first month. But the problem has been quite consistent since then.

Try setting Windows Media Player to "Repeat 1". Or at least that works for me in VLC and Winamp. This isn't a true fix (doesn't help webplayer radio), but it is a workaround until Elrond can better tune things.

Thank you, Arclayn. I'm a bit out of touch, I guess. I thought Winamp was not available any more. I'll give it a try.

Winamp has changed corporate ownership a couple times, and I really don't know if the player is still officially available or not. I archived the installer and patch when Winamp announced it was shutting down -- so I can continue using Winamp to stream radio on my Windows desktop. I use a Macintosh in the office, and there I now use VLC.

I'd be wary of finding Winamp at some random freeware website. It's not hard to repack an installer with extra stuff (like spyware and malware).

I have to try this. I thought I was the only one with this frustrating issue. I'm glad I'm not alone.

I'm expiriencing this issue on several devices. The stream stops / disconnects after mostly one, maybe sometimes 2 songs on all devices (the source of the stream seems not to make a matter). This happens with the Browser, with VLC on Windows 10, with BubbleUpnp on Android and with both of my Yamaha Receivers (RX-V779 and RX-V771) which I mostly take for streaming.

Hi all!

I bought some new and better network gear a few days ago. What are your experiences? I haven't had drop-outs after that at least. How does it work?
