I use to be able to get this radio station http://www.thehighwaystations.com/home.php
when they had a choice between Windows Media Player and 365 Audio.
Now they've gone to streaming audio from http://www.streamtheworld.com/stream/KHWYFM/
and I can't get past the "connection in progress" window.
Never had a problem previously, and the only thing that has changed is the streaming audio.
I've been in contact with the radio station support and stream the world support and everything they've suggested didn't work:
Radio Station (none of this worked)
You should be able to tune in using any internet browser that has the Flash Player plugin installed (most browsers do).
If you need to, you can download the latest Flash plugin free from Macromedia:
My suggestion would be to temporarily disable Zone Alarm and possibly Norton to see if that makes any difference.
If you can connect, then you ll have to create an exception in the firewall for the Flash player
Yes...Flash just loads itself as a plugin to the browser, rather than a standalone program.
The next step would be for you to try downloading and installing the current version of Internet Explorer to see if that helps:
This will have support for the latest version of Flash.
Many people prefer to use Mozilla Firefox, which also works very well with Flash streaming:
They also recommend that since the Flash player uses Windows Media Player codecs on Windows computers, it might be a good idea to make sure you have the latest version of Windows Media Player installed.
Give these things a try and let me know if your having any luck.
StreamTheWorld (nothing worked)
Open Windows Media Player then:
File\Open URL\ put the link below
This should work fine, if it still doesn't work it could be ZoneAlarm that is the problem, there is some issue with ZoneAlarm blocking without giving the choice to allow to the user
I saw the same issue with someone else, it seems that if ZoneAlarm block something it put it in a kind of blacklist URL that is active even if you disable ZoneAlarm unless you go in ZoneAlarm and clic on ''Do not start on next reboot''. Can you try it then reboot to see if it will allow the stream. If it's still not working we will try something else.
I'm out of things to try, please help.
