Permalink how to listen with android phone?

StickyNew Topic
Page 1 of 1

Hi, do I need a specific app to listen with my android? I go to the website and cannot listen. any help would be much appreciated.

Brian

From the home page, click on the Listen tab; go to the bottom of the page and click on the Android icon; this takes you to the Android App Store, from where you can download a Shoutcast player, which you need to listen.

django, thank you.

Brian

I've also tried unsuccessfully to get NSSR on my Android phone. I can't find it by going to the App Store. If I Google "Shoutcast," it would appear that the app is no longer available for Android phones.

I think you need to install a shoutcast compatible app. Try going to the Google play store and searching for shoutcast, there are a bewildering number of apps that support this format.

I'll try to do this shortly and report back.

Here is how I did it. I am sure there are many other ways to do this. You need an internet radio app for your phone or tablet. There are millions of these things. I tried at random the XiiaLive player. You can find it in the Google Play store or use this link:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.android.DroidLiveLite

Once I had the XiiaLive app installed, I opened it. I then went to favorites and pressed the Add URL. I then typed this in:

http://server-23.stream-server.nl:8426/listen.pls

It is quite tedious to type this into your phone. I wonder if Neils could add NSSR to some directory? I did search for North Sea Surf Radio first but came up empty. So I had to type that in, then click next, then save. Then it is in your favorites and you can play it.

XiiaLive works perfect for Android, that´s what I use myself.

I'm amazed I was able to type in that url. thanks Brian, all is working great.

Another simple solution - I'm getting a higher sound quality (better stream? dunno) on Android using a web browser open on NSSR site's own flash player.

Doesn't Radio Tuna work on Androids? It does on iPods.

Squink Out!

XiiaLive does, indeed, work well for NSSR. However, you can also download the free App, Surf Radio (from Speedo Apps). Works great on my Android phone. AND, there are a few other stations on the list as well.

I use the TuneIn radio app on my Windows phone. They have an app for all OS phones & tablets.
All you do is go to the Search page and type in North Sea Surf Radio and it finds it for you. Just add to favourites and it's always there.

Love the station by the way!

I just installed the surf music app. So far, so good. Smile

VLC for Android also works well under Open MRL.

THIS. Caveman simple. Duh

Install, Open, grab NSSR that is already listed. And, as John, mentions as of this date several other stations listed. Admittedly it is not going to give me 670 AM to follow Cub games but I have an HF radio & a loooonnngg wire & a Crazy Aces t-shirt for that.

Thank you John & Merry Christmas!
