1. Problem of posting - superpositions and shifts


When the site launches out, it should resemble this:

to listen radio

1.1 Shift of the menus and lists:
This can be in keeping with posting or of the characters (often under Internet Explorer), here the solution:
- Finely the top > Posting > size of the text > normal
- Finely the top > Posting > Zoom > 100%
- Finely the top > Posting > style > style by default

1.2. The executives and titles are posted, but the radios and the contents of the lists are not posted:
It is mainly with a problem of connection to the databases or cookies.
We invite you to consult our heading “cookies” to check if that does not come from there, if not thank you to address an e-mail to us.

1.3. Another concern:
- You can try to reload the site.
- If not we invite you to consult the heading: “The site does not take care


2. The site does not take care/problem of sound/problem of posting…

2.1. To empty the mask of your browser: :

This can be solved just by emptying the mask of your browser (think of also emptying the history of navigation and download):
Click here to know how to empty the mask of your browser:
In a general way, it is recommended to empty your mask regularly, to remove all the undesirable cookies and all the useless temporary pages which weigh down as sites that you visit, your computer and your navigation.

2.2 If not write quickly to us with info@radioways.com we will assist you free and quickly
2.3 The radios do not appear or part of the site remains in “LOADING”:
  • a. The most probable reason is that you prohibited the cookies: Consult our assistance to manage/authorize our cookies (see summary of the assistance) We are obliged to use the cookies for the recording of the radios and the playlists.
    To be sure that functions, the cookies following should be authorized:
    - www.radioways.co.uk
    - radioways.co.uk
  • C. Lastly, if not try with another browser, to see whether it goes.
    In certain cases of use of network 3G or WIFI network hammered (cybercafé, etc…), certain flows are blocked. We met mainly this concern on keys 3G.

3. Installation of Flash player

3.1 - New version of Flash is HIGHER A 10.2:
The Radioways site uses functionality (the player) which requires the installation of the version of Flash is HIGHER A 10.2. Here a didactitiel of Adobe, allowing you to test and install Flash Player simply:

TEST AND INSTALLATION OF FLASH PLAYER > > CLICK HERE > >

After the installation of the update Flash Player, it is necessary to start again your computer so that the installation is correctly taken into account

3.2 - Important (Windows): Innovation to optimize/accelerate/clean your PC: FIXIT from Microsoft:
Cleaning/optimization PC: Fixit from Microsoft (free)

Microsoft FixitBy install software, plugins etc… This often creates conflict of memory allocation, codecs, and others bugs Windows… Fixit diagnosis, detects and corrects automatically the majority of the problems of your system. To use without moderation (it is free)…


3.3 - Breakdown service, bonds useful: If you meet concern for the installation of flash (or if the browser asks you to install flash again). We invite you to consult the assistance of Adobe:

a. Breakdown service of the problems of installation of Flash Player
b. Breakdown service of installation of Flash for Mac (Intel)
c. test and version of your flash player
d. direct link of installation of flash player

- If not you can also uninstall and reinstall your browser properly.
- If the problem persists, do not hesitate to contact us with: info (At) radioways.com

4. Installation of the goods “plugins” (modules) to listen to the radio

- 1. Reader Flash owner integrated into the site:
It will enable you to read almost totality (95%) radios of our catalog
It is a reader whom we developed in-house and who integrates a certain number of functionality innovating, in particular treatment of the cuts/buffer. A new version will make it possible as from the 1/15/2013 to read the mp4 too.

- 2. WMP (Windows media player).
That concerns you only if you are under Windows:
- If you are under Internet Explorer: not need (in the worst case “Windows update”…)
- If you are under Firefox/Mozilla or Opera or Chromium, consult our page:
of assistance to: installation of the plugin Windows Media Player (click-here).

- 3. VLC (videolan):
ONLY if you are under mac Macintosh or Linux for the radios which are not QS+.
It will not be useful for you under Windows for Radioways.

- Please consult our page
of assistance to the installation of plugin VLC for Macintosh or Linux.
- Just for information, here the bond of assistance to the installation of plugin VLC for Windows.

- 4. NO ONE:
This indication apparrait when the radio does not have flow for the operating system used (in particular Linux or Mac)

Important note 2:
Normally, our system of automatic control will post you pop-up proposing the good to you plug-in.
In the very rare case and private individual where this system of detection would not have functioned (pop-up reduced Windows system, or anti safety, etc…), a message “unavailable” will be posted during the reading of certain radios.
You can then consult the bonds above, to install the good plug-in.

5. Certain radios post “unavailable”: solution?

The message “unavailable” means that the flow of the radio is inaccessible.

a. If the radio is not “MP3”, check that you correctly installed the plugin: heading: installation of the plugin for the radios

b. The most probable reason is that the flow of the radio is inaccessible.
We for this reason identified the following restrictions:
- Key 3G SFR, restriction of reading on certain flows wmp and VLC
- Hotspot SFR/Neuf Wifi: restriction of reading of certain flows wmp and the majority of flows vlc

- Certain companies block the access to certain waiters of radios: for this reason, for the same radio, you will find several version (type the name in research)

However, that could also come from a blocking of the player if it is a radio which usually answers.
- For you to ensure some: check that you are able to consult and listen to other radios. Then return on this radio again.
- If not, carry out a research by name of radio, we often have several version of flow for the same radio. Thus test other flows. - If not, please try to close the browser and start again the site.
- If the problem persists and that no other radio answers, please carry out the check list of the 5 points of our heading “the site does not take care”.

Finally do not hesitate especially to solicit us to announce us the problem and to contact us with info (At) radioways.com

6. Microcuts of sound or total cut at the end of a certain time.

1. Regular microcuts spaced at the time of listening or stop at the end of a few seconds:

1.1 Solution 1:
Have “break again” a few seconds then “play”.
It is often with the very fast diffusion in quick stream, the buffer did not have time to take care.

1.2 Solution 2:
If the radio stops systematically at the end of a few seconds (and when you have break/play, that begins again the same piece or that does not launch out any more) it is that the player flash badly initialized and kept out of plug the same piece. That more frequently arrives when there is another process flash (on another site for example: pub, flash, etc.)
For that, the browser should be left (to also close all the other pages). Then to launch Radioways. All should return in the order.

1.3 Solution 3:
We added alternatives of streams of listening allowing to answer your configuration.
To find these different streams, you can seek (think of notching radio). You will have in results of the alternatives of “streams”, different type (qs+, wmp or vlc) and flows (24, 56,64,128kbps, etc.)
1.4 If the problem persists:
Thank you to urgently address e-mail to us to: info (At) radioways.com, with the name of the radio which poses problem.

2. Cut of the radio at the end of a few hours of listening:
One very a large number of radios set up a “timer” which cuts the sound or stops the diffusion of the stream at the end of a certain listening time (in general a few hours). This in order to avoid the abusive, erroneous or “forgotten” diffusion of radios.

3. White page and not of exclamation at the end of a certain listening time:
Please consult the assistance relating to the appearance of a white page with point of exclamation.

7. Problem of cookies

The cookies, are a file in which we store essential information for:
- Programming of the recordings of the radios
- Your playlists of radios.
- Indexed fast research quick search
- The acceleration of listening of the radios: quick stream

Consequently, the Radioways site, will function correctly only if you authorize the cookies following:
radioways.co.uk
www.radioways.co.uk

You can very easily consult the contents besides stored by these cookies, they are textual files.

Here a tutorial to know: how to activate the cookies

8. White Player (vacuum) + not of exclamation

In certain rare case, the site can leave room to a white page with a point of exclamation.




It is a known bug of the player Flash of Adobe relative to a timout and the management of the memory.
You can follow the evolution and the correction of this bug by the teams of Adobe on: https://bugbase.adobe.com/index.cfm?event=bug&id=2928203.

If that produced, it is enough to reload the page and to launch the site again.


Note rare and particular Cas for certain browsers IE:
Under certain rare version of Internet Explorer, when you start again radioways, it could post you a message asking for the reinstalment of flash.
It is a mistake in interpretation. You do not need to reinstall flash.
To solve the problem you can:
