Listen Here to RevolutionONE
Rock Music. With just that little bit eXtra.
WHY HAS THE PLAYER PAGE CHANGED!?!
Regular listeners will know that Rockin' Robin is moving house, and because that means the dismantling of the server farm, we have to ensure that our 24/7 CFRRock stream keeps active until a new permanent housing can be provided. However, we can only maintain one temporary 24/7 server/stream at this time so to make it easier to manage everything we've temporarily moved all the CFRXtra shows onto CFR Rock stream, and given the page a name to reflect this.
This means you'll have all the shows Monday to Sunday in one place for the time being. We'll also put a more varied autoplay up but don't worry, at least 75% of the output will remain rock and metal across both the autoplay and the live shows.
We have players in a couple of different formats to suit the device you are listening to us on.
HTML 5 PLAYER
The above HTML 5 player plays on just about everything, including Windows, Apple and Linux based computers, most Smart TVs, the XBOX ONE and most internet ready set top boxes. This new solution gives you greater control, song titles, album covers and no adverts! If you press the little orange button underneath the ON AIR bit, it will also open a new window with information about the band or artist.
NOTE: At this time we do not recommend trying to listen to our shows on these players on a smart phone unless you link using wi fi rather than the phone networks. We stream at 320kbps, the highest possible rate which offers CD quality sound. Unfortunately neither the 3G or 4G networks in the UK are sufficiently robust enough to deliver buffer free streaming at this rate. Instead use the mini players on the home page. Even if using your wifi, please set your phone or tablet and/or player buffer settings to the max.
Players for Non-Computers
ANDROID OR iOS?
Whilst the HTML5 player works on just about everything we do have a handy app from L2MR that you can download from either Google Play (click here) or the Apple App Store (click here and then search for Listen 2 My Radio) and search for Cfrrock.
Or if you are feeling very fancy you can go HERE and look for the Mobile App button around the bottom right of the page and scan the QR code.
If you have an internet radio that supports the icecast2 format/radio directory, you can now listen to CFRRock AND CFRXtra on it. For CFRRock, add new station, and simply paste in http://188.8.131.52:7769/stream and the station name is Crossfire radio. It should find it.
Note: different radios need new stations adding differently, so it may be a variation of the above and you may need to add mp3 and/or Crossfireradio somewhere in the mix.
WANT A POP UP PLAYER SO YOU CAN BROWSE THE REST OF THE SITE?
Listeners asked us to provide a pop up player but we found that managing the extra pages and features was often problematic. Thankfully browsers have now settled on the tab format so all you have to do is right mouse click the Menu item and select Open as New Tab and et viola, you have two pages open, one the player page and one that you can browse the rest of the site with :)
LOOKING FOR CFRXTRA PLAYER?
We have temporarily switched off Xtra. See box at top of page.
MISSED A SHOW???
All our live shows are on a 4 week rotation in our Playback chatroom in the Forum. To listen simply GO HERE and catch up.
Crossfire Donation Box
When we set up CFR we took a strategic decision NOT to place adverts on the actual airtime, but as the size of the station has grown the technical demands on costs and person time have grown too. To that end we have added merchandise to our site and monetised it, click HERE to open the shop page. We will NOT be placing ads on air so long as we can cover our costs through other means.
However, in the meantime if any of you want to donate the cost of a coffee for those sleepless nights we spend fixing Windows induced problems, that would be much appreciated. You might even get an exclusive Dee pic mailed to you.
NOTE: APPLE WANT EVERYONE TO USE APPLE PAY SO HAVE BLOCKED THIS PAYPAL LINK FROM GOING STRAIGHT TO THE DONATE PAGE FROM AN iOS SYSTEM- please copy the link into a browser.
