Closing thread. This issue should be resolved with the latest available version of XiiaLive.

I had the same issue.  My radio station that I listen to (KBZTFM 94/9 out of San Diego) changed CDN providers from Liquidcompass to StreamTheWorld.  Streamtheworld encapsulates the MP3 stream inside a Flash audio container.  Pain in the arse...

But after searching for a solution, I happened upon the answer...

I don't know what a "chumby" is, but by inserting "PULS87" into this link:

You get a playlist file that will show you the following links:

File1=http://1591.live.streamtheworld.com:80/PULSE87_SC
File2=http://1591.live.streamtheworld.com:3690/PULSE87_SC
File3=http://1591.live.streamtheworld.com:443/PULSE87_SC

Any one of those links will hook you up...  They are MP3 streams, so you can take full advantage of the buffer in XiiaLive.  I have mine buffering the full 10 seconds, and my stream no longer skips...  It's even more awesome than before.

Jona im using Android HTC Wildfire upgraded to 2.2

Also i tried manually adding this alternative stream address below for the same station and i cant get it to load any ideas why it wont? Its a "stream the world" stream address

The link you provided is to a webpage not the actual stream... :( That is why it fails to be added as a favorite.  I believe the next update coming out this month will make things run a lot smoother.... I'll check back once we release....

yea, I have the same issue... I can't get this to play on my phone...

It's funny, the radio station changed providers from liquidcompass (AAC) to 'streamtheworld', which is some kind of POS AAC stream wrapped in a FLV container.

Interesting info.  Thanks for letting us know.  I tried to explore see if I could add something in the app to help with this kind of situations but it doesn't seem possible, this seems to be a special case with this particular radio station.
yea, I spent the better part of yesterday trying to work this issue.  Maybe there is a sticky where you can add something to the forum, or in your official FAQ (?) to talk about this.

Incidentally, now that this radio station's stream is MP3, XiiaLive 2.1.7 is super solid.  I still have some issues on Gingerbread 2.3.4 with it not seeing a connection, but I long press the "STOP" button, which kills the process, and then hit "Play" and everything seems to work it out.
It would be interesting if you give a try using our newest beta version of the app... Might have improved this... Send me an email if you like and I'll send you apk to check it out...

I sent an e-mail to the connect@ e-mail on your home website.  I would have sent it to your visualblasters@ e-mail, but I wasn't sure which one is yours.   I mentioned about a specific Android tablet that I can also test it on...

Could you let me know what phone and Android version is running? We are currently looking into this issue.


If you get a stopping message and it doesn't come out of it you can simply long press the stop button. This will kill the running service and get restarted.  That should allow you to continue streaming without having to restart the phone.

Update 05/06/11:
Next update should improve this area and crashing should no longer happen.
