So many stations now use iheart radio streaming which requires flash. Is there a work around to get access to the stream?

    Hello Dave, if there's no alternative method to listen to streams (which seems to be the case at you're out of luck.

    Maybe the station you want to listen to provides an mp3/mp4/ogg stream on their own website which plays in TFF or QuickTime Player or VLC. Or you can find the station in the iTunes Radio list which features >10.000 streams.

    Or try Safari, or install the mobile iheart app if you own an Android/iOS device.

    Thanks. I've tried, but not much luck. There are some alternatives for
    some stations. More and more seem to be choosing iheart as their streaming
    service. It is kind of tough to listen to stations in specific areas
    because of this problem.

    I have a Mac laptop that runs OS 10.4.11. I would like to listen to Denver University Radio ( I am able to open site, but audio streaming doesn’t work. The DU support people suggest I try another browser. I did. Instead of Safari I now run Tenfourfox. Well, the audio still won’t work. Does anybody out there have a solution, low cost (besides biting bullet and getting newer Mac).

    Hello Dave. As far as I can see, the website offers two alternatives for listening, based on the capabilities of the brower visiting the website.

    2) (for html5 capable browsers)

    They both work [1) in Safari only, obviousy], counting playing time etc., but they don't seem to broadcast anything right now. The streams they refer to don't exist.
