What’s The Difference?
If the below information is not helpful or if you have any questions regarding our streaming, please contact Sean G. HERE
LISTENING HELP- Section 1
Streaming audio pushes Internet technology a bit, and because of that, our stream isn’t always available. It is our desire to be on the Internet 24/7 — but computer problems, Internet connect problems, server problems can all defeat the best laid plans! We are streaming over 99% of the time…but it may be that you have arrived on the site at just the wrong time! If you can listen to one stream but not the other, it is likely that that stream is temporarily off line.
(1) Many regular listeners have “book marked” or added the link to listen to their “favorites” list. They don’t come to the web page to click on “listen” — they just use their saved link. There is nothing wrong with that approach, except for the rare instance in which the company that provides our streaming service needs for us to change the listen address. If that happens you will not be able to listen to the stream. Be sure you are using the most current link. The correct link for the KJIC stream is as follows: http://radio.securenetsystems.net/v4/index.cfm?stationCallSign=KJIC The correct link for the KJIC Praise and Worship is as follows: http://radio.securenetsystems.net/v4/index.cfm?stationCallSign=PRAISE You can copy and paste the above addresses into your address bar and save them in your favorites folder to listen without being on our website. Although we do encourage you to visit our website often to see what’s new.
(2)…sometimes web bowers cache web sites, so when you attempt to go to the site, you actually just see a copy of the site already on your computer. In other words, the listen link has been changed on the web site, but you are still going to the old listen address because the web page is stored in your computer. Refreshing or reloading the page usually fixes that.
If you are listening at work and one day you can’t get it to work anymore, you might want to check with your system administrator. We have known of at least one instance in which the systems administrator decided to block streaming audio to the whole company.
Some people can connect, but there are many drop outs. That is a very different problem than not being able to connect at all. Think of it as filling up a bucket that has an open spigot in the bottom. If your connection is slower then the stream it will have to buffer in order to catch up with the streaming. Hopefully, your connection will get up to a speed that is faster than the stream before the bucket runs dry. If it runs dry, the music stops while the bucket is refilled (buffers).
If you have dropouts, etc. be sure to read section 1 of this page to better understand what is happening.
