Tune In!

There are sev­er­al ways to tune in to Vir­tu­al Com­mu­ni­ty Radio (VCRa­dio). Note that some, but not all, only work in the US, UK and Canada.

You can lis­ten direct from this web site by using the play­er above or in the right sidebar.

You can launch a play­er with this URL: http://player.live365.com/a93871 — but note that this will only work in the US, Cana­da and the UK.

You can now access Vir­tu­al Com­mu­ni­ty Radio sim­ply and quick­ly on your Alexa or com­pat­i­ble cloud-based smart speak­er. Just enable the skill (and you may not even have to do that) and you’re one step away from being tuned in! Just say, “Alexa, Play Vir­tu­al Com­mu­ni­ty Radio”! If you need to enable the Skill, say “Alexa, enable skill” and then answer “Vir­tu­al Com­mu­ni­ty Radio” when asked for the name of the Skill.

You can also use these lis­ten links:

If you want to set VCRa­dio as the par­cel audio on land in a vir­tu­al world, use this URL:
http://main.vcradio.org  and put it into the par­cel or region music slot, typ­i­cal­ly in World > About Land > Sound > Music URL

There is a short cut if you’re run­ning Firestorm. If you have per­mis­sions to change the land music URL then type in local chat: /music http://main.vcradio.org and it will switch.

You can also use the same http://main.vcradio.org URL as follows:

  • Plug it into a sup­port­ed web brows­er, which will play the stream imme­di­ate­ly (try click­ing the link above for example)
  • Plug it into a net­work play­er like VLC or WinAmp

If this URL does not work for you, try http://streaming.live365.com/a93871 

If your brows­er or device requires it, the secure ver­sion of this will also work: https://streaming.live365.com/a93871

In addi­tion, in Sec­ond Life we have addi­tion­al tools includ­ing a HUD which will tune your brows­er to the sta­tion and a free radio that will auto­mat­i­cal­ly set the Music URL above to VCRa­dio — vis­it the VCRa­dio The­atre,  our HQ, on Wil­low Grove to get them.

We now stream in AAC as well as mp3. mp3 is need­ed for Sec­ond Life, but AAC oper­ates at 64kbps where­as the mp3 stream is at 128kbps, while pro­vid­ing at least the same lev­el of qual­i­ty — so the AAC stream is great if you’re on a phone with a data cap or a low-band­width con­nec­tion. Learn more about our AAC stream here.

And final­ly, you can Get the App! our cus­tom App, avail­able for iOS and Android.
