“Unable to play this station. Its address may have changed...”

Continuing the discussion from "Unable to play this station. It's address may have changed…":

I‘ve been having exactly this problem yesterday and today, using the current Early Access version: Most live radio links fail with this message; accessing the same streams through those same services’ apps or via their web sites works fine with no problems.

Example streamers include:

  • all of the Concertzender streams that I‘ve tested, both via their concertzender.nl and their greenhost.nl addresses
  • France Musique La Baroque (France)
  • WCRB Boston Classical Radio (USA)
  • WHRB Harvard Radio (USA)
  • CKUT FM (Canada)
  • VPR Classical (USA)
  • WUNH (USA)
  • Mother Earth Klassik (Germany)
  • Viva Classica (Finland)

OK, I thought it was every single stream; however, a few streamers do work:

  • CBC Music (Eastern) (Canada)
  • Ici Musique Classique (Canada)
  • Megaton Cafe Radio (USA)

All of the non-working streams were working fine within the last week or two. Is anyone else seeing this? Any suggestions on how I can get these working again (especially Concertzender)?

Hmm, fIrstly, I can play those stations.

Secondly, between them they use all different stream types, and the fact that you can play some stations means it’s not your codecs.

I wonder if your DNS cache is bad. Has anything changed on your router? Can you reboot that? (I assume that’s where your iMac uses for DNS queries).

My Roon Server is running on a Mac mini with the current version of macOS 13 “Ventura.” Resetting its DNS cache with

sudo dscacheutil -flushcache
sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder

and rebooting indeed did the trick. Thank you!
