Thank you for letting me know @Frank_Borowski. RP is one of the most popular stations and I always get worried whenever it hiccups.
8 posts were split to a new topic: Problems with streaming radio
Actually there is a problem with RP streams at the moment; it’s being noted on their forum, which ties in with my experience of occasional stumbles on the non-main streams.
It plays for 10 seconds and then it stopts.
On the Ibiza Global Website it keeps playing (so no problem from Ibiza Global Radio
Other radio’s are playing normal.
I’ve changed the stream, it appears ok now. Apologies.

Description Of Issue
Over the past few days I started having problems with internet radio. More specifically, some stations that used to work, now fail to start. If I hit play I get the following message:
Playback was interrupted because a track failed to load.
This affects some radio stations but not others. The have all been added a long time ago (Tunein links) and used to work just fine. Example:
This station plays fine when I access it via Tunein directly on my PC (where core is running). If I add this to Roon, it fails to start.
Any help will be greatly appreciated
Yes, something funny going on. I have just tried adding that station via tunein and that has failed too. At the moment I don’t know why.
However, I have added
Pepper 96.6 as a station in the live radio section. If you search you should find it. It works for me.
Can you let me know of your other problem stations please? I’ll try and fix them the same way and we can sidestep Tunein (although I do note that the link ought to work).
As this seems to be a station issue rather than your setup, I have moved your post over to the #live-radio area.
Many thanks @BrianW
The instance you added seems to work fine :-).
Here is another one with the same problem:
OFFradio now added too.
Many thanks again @BrianW. This is now working as well. If there are any more I will report back. Not sure why the Tunein import does not work.
Nor me. I’ve tried a few and usually OK, but some don’t. I’ll explore further when I get time.
Currently Finnish radio Nostalgia streams are broken. Neither Stream is playable.
Yes, they it appears they are not valid any more. New stream added for Nostalgia. Please check.
Thank you. Confirmed to work now.
“ABC Lounge Music Radio” will no longer be supported outside of the app. This station should be removed from Roon.
Is that some sort of policy statement by the station? I couldn’t see anything on their website; it says the music is free.
Our streams still work (I just added one), but if we shouldn’t, we won’t.
When you play the stream all it actually says it. I am paraphrasing but it says, “If you would like to continue using these station please see our app” and then shuts down.
Right, one of the original streams is broken.
The second has geo-blocking going on for you in US and produced that message. It doesn’t for me in the UK, but instead connects to Jamendo Lounge (but doesn’t work)
The new third stream works. I need to establish whether it should. I’ve found one third party website that plays it, but others e.g. Tunein, won’t.
I’ll leave the working one up for the moment, and will post here if any changes.
Found a couple more websites that play it. And Tunein does play it in the US.
I am going to leave the stream that Roon now has in place and I’ve added an extra one.
