WEB PLAYER

What it is: 

The webplayer launches the KZMU stream at 128 kbps in a browser window (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.) In addition to providing a quality stream, it summarizes elements from kzmu.org homepage like the news, and word of the day, and more. It will also display the playlist of the current DJ if they provide one.

If desired, the listener can save the KZMU icon on their home screens of a device, which will launch the player without the listener needing to navigate through a browser first. It is essentially a shortcut button to KZMU!

What it isn’t: 

This is not an app. There is no need to download anything.

FAQs

I used to be able to stream, but now it doesn’t work. What happened?

There are a few things that may have happened. If none of the below options apply to you, please don’t hesitate to call KZMU to assist in troubleshooting.

1)  The most common reason our listeners haven’t been able to connect to our stream in the last 6 months is that we updated our stream connection and have a new stream URL. Many third party streaming websites (TuneIn, A2Z, radio.net, etc) need to be alerted when a change like this is made. If you are listening via a service like this, please call Serah at KZMU so that she may make the change.

2) The listener needs to clear their browsing history or cookies.

3)  Our streaming is down! Every once in a while streaming will go down for maintenance. We do our best to alert the listeners ahead of time and put an alert on the web player interface as well as on our website

4)  Your device may longer be compatible with the streaming technology.

When I click on “Listen Live” and nothing happens.

This link will download the streaming URL, but it will not automatically launch a player. You will need to open your desired player (iTunes, Windows Media Player, MediaMonkey, etc), select the stream link and press play. Until 2016 this was the only way to stream KZMU online.

There is no playlist on the Webplayer. It just says “Current Track: Sorry…no playlist updates in over 15 minutes, waiting for the DJ to update what they’ve been playing.”

Our DJs are strongly encouraged to keep up to date playlists, but not all of them do. When a DJ does not create a playlist, you will see this message. You can call the on-air number to speak to the DJ: 435-259-5968.

How do I get the KZMU Icon to save to my homescreen (phone, tablet)?

Launch the player via KZMU.org. You will see an instructional pop-up window. IF the instruction window doesn’t show up, follow these step:

1)    Android device: in the upper right hand corner of the browser window, tap the three vertical dots. Select “add to homescreen.”

2)    iPhone or other apple device: when the player shows tap the “share” button located at the bottom of the screen. Find and select the option “add to homescreen.” You may need to scroll.

M3U STREAMING

What it is:

This link will initiate the download of our streaming url. You can listen via iTunes, Windows Media Player, or other media software on your computer.

FAQs

Do I need to download the stream every time I want to listen?

No. If you’ve downloaded it once, it should remain in your library. For example,if you’re using iTunes, you’ll find it under “Internet Songs.”

I clicked ``Listen Live`` but nothing happened.

By clicking “listen live” you’ve downloaded the stream file. It will not automatically start the stream. You need to choose the media software you want to listen with. A quick way to do this is find the file in your Downloads Folder and open it from there. You’ll likely be prompted to open one of your existing media players.
