Frequently Asked Questions: Listening Online
I got an error message when I tried to play archive audio. What's wrong?
Error messages can come up for a number of reasons. Make sure that your computer's internet connection is still working, and that your audio player is upgraded to the latest version. You might try testing another source of online audio to verify that your player is working. If everything is working, we may be a server issue that's causing the error. Use NHPR's web stream support form to let us know about the problem and we'll do our best to help.
