Hi all, am trying to stream The Rock.
I click on the Listen Now button and a pop-up window opens, but no sound manifests itself.
Any of the Rock listeners on here got any clues about rectifying this?
Cheers

Go down the warehouse, buy a cd from each of these weak bands

nickleback
creed
greenday
Third eye blind
matchbox 20


Take three songs from each artist to create a playlist, select play, repeat.

If your lucky your brain will turn to mush quite quickly and you can nod along to it and pretend this is what rock is, if not then you will have to slit your wrists to escape the hell.

Otherwise I would suggest Blood will Out by head like a Hole.

You need the windows media pluggin for whatever browser you are using. The pluggin is pretty shitty so I just use this site: http://tunein.com/radio/The-Rock-FM-902-s25248/# (stream is down atm)

Just tried that but not getting any sound.
I'm using FF, is there a plug-in that has to be loaded?

Tried the Tunein site again, hauraki works but the rock doesn't come through.
Will stick with VLC at the moment.

Opened it again in IE and damn near blew the speakers out lol it was crystal clear and a lot louder.

If you have a pop up blocker in FF that may be stopping it as well.
