Hi:

I can't seem to listen to internet radio. I've tried two different websites: iHeart.com and Shoutcast.com. I get no sound.

My volume is up, and I have no problem watching and hearing videos on YouTube.

The volume is up on the internet station, also.

Any ideas?

I just tried Shoutcast, and the sound works fine. At a guess, if the information in your signature is correct, your version of OS X and/or Safari might be too old.

My laptop is fairly new. I have the latest Safari. I don't use the iBook if that is what you are looking at. I am using my Macbook Pro.

Hmm, weird. It works great on my system. Have you tried from a different user account, or with a different browser?

Nope. I don't want to have to download another browser if I don't have to. Haven't tried another user account. But, that shouldn't be it, right? You heard it on Safari, right?

I wonder if I have a program conflicting with it. I wish we still had conflict catcher. I don't know how to tell if there is a conflict. I turned off the four extensions I know about, and that didn't make a difference. It is Weird!

I couldn't use Facebook before I turned off FastTube. I researched it and found out that could mess with Facebook. It did. It just caused it to crawl and I got the spinning beach ball of death. Once I turned off FastTube it worked just fine.

I turned off FastTube along with my other extensions tonight, but it made no difference. It's a mystery.

Do you use Adobe Flashplayer? iHeart told me I needed it. I thought I had it but I just have the adobe manager. I redownloaded Adobe Flashplayer and it said "Installation Successful" but I can't find it anywhere. Just the download manager.

I went to the Adobe site and it stated:

If Flash Player is installed on your computer, the following box displays the version of Flash Player and your operating system. If Flash Player is not installed, a blank box appears.
I got the blank box.

You are having problems with downloading or installing Adobe Flash Player on a Mac.

Solution
Then it gives me a bunch of things to do. I will do them if I have to but I am wondering if there is anything else I can do to make this easier.

I have VLC media player but have never been able to figure out how to use it. Would that be what I would use instead of Adobe? Grrrrr!

Did you download FP directly from Adobe? If not, do it now. If so, try again. In 10.6.8, the appropriate files are found in /Library/Internet Plugins. Do you have a FP preference pane in System Preferences? It's there in my system.

Hi: Yes, I downloaded it from the Adobe FP site.

I found my internet plugins but something is not right. None of the folders in my Library will open!!! Wow, simple thing turns into a big deal!

Restart and see if that helps. Sometimes, that's all it takes.

I did a restart with no help. I ran disk utility with no help.

When I pulled up the finder, clicked "option" and "go" the library was in the pull down window. I clicked on "library" and it goes to the Library for a split second and then goes back to "User". I have to do this about 3 times before the library folders will actually show up. But they won't open. There seems to be something very wrong with my computer.

I'm thinking of deleting Adobe all together to see if that makes a difference.

I still coudn't get into my Libary Files via "GO." I went to my HD and then to Libary and then Internet Plug-ins. I found something called Flashplayer plugin (this is after I deleted Adobe Flashplayer). And yet, I looked at my system prefs and there is a Flash player icon. Not sure what that is. A built in Flashplayer? Doesn't seem to work with radio internet though.

That FP preference pane is placed by FP itself. That's where you adjust (what else?) your FP preferences. Have you tried starting in Safe Mode to see if that does anything?

You said that you ran Disk Utility. Did you mean running Repair Disk or Repair Permissions? Repair Disk is likely what you want, and starting in Safe Mode runs that automatically. Do you have a stronger utility like Disk Warrior, TechTool Pro or Drive Genius.

I ran repair disk and repair permissions. Now I CAN get into my Libary folders for some reason. But the plug in folder doesn't open. I wonder if that's because there's nothing in it.

I uninstalled Adobe Flash Player. Now when I go to internet radio, it says I need a flash player. So, before I must have had one. It just didn't work except occasionally.

I don't have anything other than Disk Utility. I know you are a fan of Disk Warrior. I really should get that, I guess.

I'll try the safe mode thing.

When I went to System prefs just now, the FP is no longer there. I must have trashed it. Not sure what to look for in the Trash. Was it a part of Adobe or something else? I think it was Adobe because it was the red icon. Sorry to be so much trouble.

Do you use Adobe or something else? I need to download something.

I am wondering why I can listen to internet radio via iTunes without a flash player? It works just fine.

It sounds like your hard drive permissions are seriously messed up. Repair Permissions will repair permissions for Apple-related stuff, like the system itself, but not for (some) non-Apple stuff.

You couldn't get into your Library because you didn't have permission to. It sounds like you couldn't run the Flash plugin because you didn't have permission to do that either. Now that you have repaired permissions, try installing Flash again.

I downloaded Adobe flashplayer again. It said the download was successful. But all I can find is the flashplayer install manager. The only choice for that is to quit or uninstall adobe. I just can't seem to install the actual player. I give up.

Thanks, though.

Now I've noticed that I can get sound from Shoutcast Radio but not from iHeart. I guess maybe it could be iHeart. I hope. Thanks for all your help.

Hi, Rita,

I tried both and had trouble with both, but after clicking around a bit, both of them eventually worked.

No idea why. confused

Thanks, Artie. The iHeart works on and off for me. Sometimes their volume slider is at the bottom and I cannot get it to go higher. Other times I can and it either works or not. I had trouble with the other one at first and then later it worked for me. Maybe it's not my computer after all. Who knows? Weird, huh?

Yeah, I got iHeart to work before, but it won't work again.

Hitting command-shift-dash (command-minus) may work for that.

Thanks for the tip. I didn't know about command-shift-dash.
