Flexible Listening Options
Use the links above to select your desired format and connection speed. Windows-only users can always use Windows Media Player, but other players are available for the Windows Operating System. VLC Media Player is a universal app that works very well on all platforms, including Linux, Mac, PC, and mobile devices. iTunes and Quicktime are also available for Windows and Mac. If you need a particular player for your system, see the download links to the right.
Listening On Mobile Devices
Clicking the "Winamp Player" icon above will work on many mobile devices and smart phones. For the Apple iPad/iPod/iPhone, you have a wide choice of apps to download from the iTunes App Store that will play our Shoutcast stream. If you are using an older model iPhone, you may need go into the device settings and enable "Allow hi-bit streams." Then, search for "Star 98" and save it as a favorite.
If you have an Android device, there are many good options. Although officially retired, Winamp is the Grandaddy of all music players and can still be found here. Another excellent open-source multimedia app for Android phones and tablets is VLC Media Player; it can play any of the stream links above. Finally, there is no shortage of other Internet Radio apps on the Google Play Store. One of my personal favorites for Android is "Xiia Live". Available in both a free and a low-cost Pro version which adds extra features, it is highly configurable and also contains a built-in database of all Shoutcast streams. If asked to enter an URL to play, use the following:
http://sc9.shoutcaststreaming.us:9052 for the 128K mp3 feed, or
http://sc9.shoutcaststreaming.us:9054 for the 32K AAC+ feed.
Also, check out our TuneIn Radio app. You can listen to Star 98 on virtually any mobile device including laptop PC or Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Palm, plus many more. Give it a try! TuneIn is a great way to enjoy Star 98 anywhere. Click the "TuneIn Radio" box in the right sidebar to go to our online player page.
