Troubleshooting:

Occasionally some people will have trouble playing back these audio streams. If this is you, here are some things to check:

* Check that you are currently connected to the internet.

* Check that you have one of the above players, or a software media player that will play back an mp3 stream, installed.

* Are you at work? There is a good chance that your work's security arrangements (firewalls etc.) are blocking the audio stream. You may have to consult your employer's IT personnel if you are unsure.

* Have you tried pasting the following links into your player? Usually each player has a menu item called "open stream", "open URL", "open network", "open audio stream" or something similar. Find this and try one or both of these links:

http://stream.2ser.com:8080/broadwave.mp3?src=1&kbps=128

or

http://stream.2ser.com:8080/broadwave.asx?src=1&kbps=128

* If you are still having trouble, email stream@2ser.com. Please remember to mention which Operating System you are using, and which of the above programs you have tried.
