TotalRock Radio Custom Player
The TotalRock Radio player carries our MP3 stream with the Webcams, Now/Next and Song Playing info embedded into it. You will need Windows Media Player to be installed on your computer. It is launched by clicking on the Red triangle play-button beneath "Listen to me" near the top of the site. If you don't have Windows Media Player on your computer, you can download the latest version from Microsoft for FREE by clicking here.

Windows Media Player is available for the following Operating Systems:
All Windows versions
and Mac versions later than Mac OS 8.1

Using Your normal mp3 Player
This link is found under the "Radio & TV" opton on the menu-bar and will allow you to listen through your default mp3 player. If it doesn't work you may not have a music player installed or streaming might be blocked by your network administrator.

Mac Users
If you have a problem with the custom player, we advise using our mp3 stream. When you click on the "Default Player" link you will normally get an m3u file downloaded onto your desktop. If you click on this your default mp3 player will open and play the stream.

Mac users can get the latest Windows Media Player here.

Linux Users
We advise using our mp3 stream. It can be launched by clicking on the 'mp3' button in the Listen section near the top of the site. Linux users can use Xine or any of its derivatives, also with Firefox.
