when I go to tunein.com I can find and play “101.9 Dawg FM, Ottawa, Ontario Canada”
It plays “directly”, via tunein.com streaming on my Laptop,
AND, it also shows up, and successfully plays in my Tunein App, on my WD-Media-Player,
However, when I want to play, for example, “The Jewel 98.5, Ottawa, Ontario Canada”,
it does NOT show up in the Tunein App of WD-Media-Player.
BUT, it does show up fine on the tunein.com website on my Laptop,
but instead of playing “directly” via Tunein.com, a pop-up message says:
" Launch Stations player,
(leave Tunein.com) and
listen to The Jewel 98.5
(CJWL-FM), Ottawa, ON."
…and then a seperate streaming window opens up and it plays fine, (on my Laptop).
BTW, I have verified these similar anomolies/differnces? on many other stations as well.
I believe this is what is causing certain Stations to not show up in Tunein-WD-Media App.
So, what gives?
I also believe this is NOT a problem with the Tunein App on WD-Media-Player, and instead, it seems to be a redirect-link sponsored by Tunein.com that sends you back to the Stations player.
In other words, certain Radio Stations are NOT directly braodcasting via Tunein.com, ???
Again, I’m not sure why this is, -maybe a licensing issue?, …, but I will contact the above Radio Statrion to see.
I’m sure many others have run into this, and if so, have you had any luck getting these stations resolved ?
