Q: "The Cruisin Player does not work?"
A: Have you got a flash player installed? For Firefox users, there is a nice plug-in here. You can alternatively get the Adobe Flash player for your own particular browser from Adobe here.
Remember to untick any third party offered (like McAfee anti virus) unless you want it of course!
If the Cruisin player still does not work, make sure your pop-up blocker is disabled on crusinradio.net
Q: Sometimes the Cruisin player fails to start in Opera or Chrome?
A: Sadly, we cannot find the answer to this rare problem that happens intermittently. There have been no reports of problems in Firefox or Internet Explorer.
Q: "One of the other players does not work?"
A: Make sure you have the appropriate player of your choice installed. VLC and Winamp are very good.
Q: "The station will not play the dial-up stream on my phone?"
A: YOU WILL NEED AN AAC+ COMPATIBLE PLAYER FOR YOUR PHONE!
If you are having problems listening by clicking on one of the common player links here, or you can't get the station player to work either- please read the information below. No matter what Operating system or computer, you should find the answer in the following paragraphs
