Title: Radio stations not playing (url constantly changing)
Post by: xeo on November 24, 2017, 12:42:44
I created a playlist with 125 working radio stations (125 urls). After a year only 29 of them works. I have to manually find properly url for every station in the internet. It's not easy because many of them don't have names or they have strange names. I have to update radio playlist every year.
Is it normal that radio station change their IPs so often and what you can do about it in AIMP?

xeophyte,

Hello.

Unfortunately, there is not anything AIMP can do about this. ???

There is a lot of Internet radio stations that change its IP addresses. Most of them are small radio stations, so they look for cheap servers from time to time. That is the main reason why the change its hosts and you got dead URLs then. It's not the only reason though.

AIMP can not "guess" what the new URL is, nor any other audio player. So I am afraid you have to check those addresses manually.

Have a nice weekend! ;)
