What should I do if the Science360 Radio stream stops playing?
Interruptions in the stream are most often caused by network connection issues, and may correct themselves in up to 20 or 30 seconds. If the stream does not resume, make sure your listening device (computer or app) has a network connection. If you are using a mobile device over a cellular data network (EDGE, 3G or 4G), switch to using WiFi if it is available at your location. Pausing and restarting the stream can also sometimes clear up streaming issues.
What should I do if the Science360 Radio Web player won't start?
Please make sure your device is connected to the Internet and you can access other network services or websites. If you are on a corporate or school/education network, the stream may be blocked by a firewall. If so, contact your network administrator/IT help desk to find out if they can allow connections to Science360 Radio. Specifically, your firewall will need to allow connections to IP address on port 4200.
