For the past few days the stream has been randomly dropping throughout the day at various intervals , every few songs to an hour or so between. I have to manually click the 'listen now' button to start up again. This has happened previously , but not  in several months. Listening via the website on iMac, OS Sonoma 14.5, Firefox 126.0.
I checked my internet connection and it's fine @ 370Mbps - no other internet/streaming issues. Anyone else having this problem?

Creating Blocks problem

Hello, I've been a solid user of the app for many years and rely a lot on playing cached blocks when I'm out and about

In recent weeks/months the facility refuses to work. I cleared the cache, nothing; uninstall and reinstalled the app, no change.

There are no error messages. The process appears to start and then just drops into "resume download" after a minute or so. I assumed that downloads run in the background, maybe not?

I tried contacting tech support a couple of times but no response

Has anyone else out there had trouble and if so managed to fix the problem?

My 'phone is a Samsung S20 running Android 13, patched up to March '24

Hi,  
Our cache blocks are served from the US.   It's likely just having trouble reaching our servers.
What you can try is.  The auto cache fill feature in settings.    It is more aggressive and will keep trying to download your cache blocks while the phone is charging.
Should be able to top things up while charging overnight.  

Can find that in  settings -> cache options -> cache autofill

Is there a separate thread to report data quality issues in the library?

Song ID #37583 has some whacked out metadata.  https://radioparadise.com/musi...

The track, Hayling, did not appear on the album Another Fine Mess (2003).  It appeared on Machine Says Yes (2002).

Also, the track is not 1:37, but rather 6:48.  At least, the original is.  Maybe RP is playing a radio edit that's closer to 4 minutes?

Anyone else get this? Any known fix or workaround? Thanks RPeeps



I haven't heard this from other listeners. Are you streaming to a Bluetooth speaker/headphones? I have seen phantom commands coming from Bluetooth devices starting playback and skipping.

Well, at least someone picked up my rant, which I generally appreciate. I absolutely agree on the form and tone, so I really have to apologize, which I hereby do, in all earnest. 

Yet, since homepages aren't really rocket-science, maybe it would be ok for anyone involved, even big Bill, if the 3d-player script would only be loaded on real need, i.e. on pages where the player is embedded, instead of loading it every time the RP homepage loads. 

I keep having this issue with a hardened Firefox browser, which is my day-to-day browser. Today the RP homepage wouldn't load at all, and it stalled while loading a gstatic.com java-script. The scripts loaded vary in stalling my browser, and today the RP homepage wouldn't load at all in that browser. - Just tried Chromium to find it acts normal in comparison.

Just a short remark from my end, and an apology.

So, I'm gonna address this bloat issue, but I'm also gonna step in and act as moderator here first. I don't get to spend a lot of time in our forum, but this is the one topic I have to check for my job here at RP to try and address issues as you all find and report them. I don't have the time nor do I want to make time for insults being passed back and forth. So, take it somewhere else or better yet just don't do it in the forum at all.

As far as the Delight player script, that is a video player we use for the VR content that we were producing last year. I'm dealing with what to do with it now that it's been brought to my attention. We currently have a single blog post that is utilizing the player and we will discuss removing it to remove the issue. Give us some time to consider the issue. 

As far as the feature that DID enrich the site, let's back off on the negative tone. We're a small company here providing a free service, so unecessary BS like that doesn't land well.

The specific line in the RP homepage source-code I was referring to is this one:

There's no need to slag RP because you are seeing a slow loading speed.   Learn how the Internet works, and what can cause your connection to a given site to be 'slow'.

Never had this, before. Seems the bloat is taking over, while the browser is trying to load some 3D assets from some cloud-space (WTF?).
Sometimes it takes up to two minutes! Who's gonna wait for a website to come on this slowly?!

No good marketing, just saying. I'm on 50-k DSL with no speed lag on other websites, only RP "wonderland".

Just a heads up that the background photos in the Android app (I'm using it on Android TV) have not been working properly for quite some time now.

Every once in a while, they relate to the currently playing song, but the vast majority of the time they seem to be just random.
