Question: What Browser should I use?
Answer: We recommend using the latest versions of Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.
Question: Your stream looks different and now I cannot seem to connect?
Answer: We will be updating our streams to use the latest Adobe Flash Player. Please make sure you download and install the latest player here.
Question: I cannot seem to connect to your stream in my Windows Media Player?
Answer: Now you can only connect to our streams from the websites and not directly using your Windows Media Player program.

Question: I want to stream your station over the Internet. But what do I need?
Answer: To successfully stream you need an Internet connection of at least 56 Kbps and the latest Adobe Flash Player.

Question: The player says it is connecting but never connects.
Answer: Our servers could be down or we could have too many people accessing our streaming feed at one particular time.  Try again in a few minutes and if it still does not work, send us an e-mail.

Question: The player says it is buffering frequently and interrupts your live stream.
Answer: There are delays introduced by the congestion on the Internet and sometimes by the speed of your Internet connection. Unfortunately, there is not much that we can do to rectify this problem. If you are on dial-up this may occur frequently.

Question: The player says it is waiting and then never connects.
Answer: Close your browser, wait 5 minutes and then try re-connecting. Sometimes we restart our streams and this causes the current streams to go into a 'waiting' state.

Question: Does your stream work on Windows, Mac and other platforms?
Answer: Yes. Our stream works on Windows, Macs and flavours of Unix, however we only support it on Windows and the Mac operating system.
Question: How do I watch the webcam?
Answer: Every weekday morning between 5:30 AM and 10 AM whenever you click LISTEN LIVE at the top of the page, you'll be able to watch the ABS via two webcams in HOT 103 Studios.  After you click LISTEN LIVE and pull up our Live Player, just click on WEBCAM (located beside the volume control) and you'll be able to alternate between two camera feeds, all while still listening to the ABS.
