internet radio with switch


Can anybody help me please?

I listen to internet music radio station and the format is windows based. As i have a macbook I always used flip4mac to listen to this with no problems at all. I am aware that the latest level of ios is now unsupported for the flip player. I have downloaded switch in the belief that i could continue to listen to this but alas no. When i go to the site and click on play i get no sound. 

Am i doing something wrong? I have the standard switch as all i want to do is listen to music.

for info here is the link of the radio station


Any help would be appreciated.

  • Switch is a file player. It can't play live streamed media. Sorry about that.
    You may want to try VLC for that.

    One would hope that internet radio stations move to formats playable in all browsers and mobile devices directly, leaving behind the necessity of plugins. That's the way the industry has moved for the most part.

    I tried playing the 2) Tim Wayne broadcast although it shows Off Air. I had no problem playing it directly in Safari on macOS 10.13.3. No plugins needed. They're using JWPlayer.
