Slow internet connection?

You should choose to listen to the AAC+ Player stream if you are on a slow or tightly capped connection. The Windows Media connection transfers slightly more data, which may not work well on a slow internet connection.


Windows Media player should be set to stream via http only. These settings are found in different places depending on which version of the player you're using (e.g. 'Tools' or 'Options'). To find out where these settings are in the version of the player you're using, use your player's help files.

If you are listening at work you may need to add firewall/proxy details in your browser or plugin settings. Check with your IT administrator for the details.
