How to Use the 90.5 WESA Player

Oct 30, 2014

Step #1
Select or Switch Stream Channel
The dropdown selector allows you to choose between 90.5 WESA (News, Talk, NPR) and JazzWorks - our 24/7 Jazz channel.

Step #2 (if needed)
Play

The player is set to auto-play, but if that does not happen after a few seconds and the player is not still buffering, press the Play button (triangle at bottom left) to start the stream you’ve selected.

Stream Not Playing?
Be sure you are running the latest version of your favorite Internet Browser. Also, depending on which browser you use, you may need to have the latest version of Adobe Flash as well. The Stream Player is built to provide HTML5 audio and uses Flash as a fallback when necessary.

Not Sure About Your Browser?
TEST BROWSER NOW
Test which browser you’re using, get a better browser or update to the latest version! It’s simple and easy when using http://whatbrowser.org. (opens in new window)

Do you have Adobe Flash?
TEST ADOBE FLASH NOW
In some cases Adobe Flash is required and must be updated to ensure the stream plays smoothly. Please use the link to test, enable and/or update your Flash Player. https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html (opens in new window)

Pop-up Windows Enabled?
When you click on “Listen” to launch the player window, it opens in a new window to allow you to keep the live stream playing while browsing the web in this window. Be sure you do not have pop-ups disabled for wfae.org.

AdBlock Plugins/Software
You must allow the stream page to serve advertisements or the live stream will be stopped by the ad blocking plugin or software. Please disable any “AdBlock” software you have running for this stream to work. The audio and visual advertisements that are served within our streams are from supporters of 90.5 WESA through Corporate Support.
