I was already on the beta. Currently 4.4.13.gp says the about screen.

If you could join the beta and see if the version there is any better,  that would be helpful.
I'll push out an update over the next couple of days as well.
So  4.4.13 is in beta now,   and should see 4.4.14  or higher in the next few days.

Been keeping my eye out to get one of the new Chromecast dongles.   They look like a nice improvement over their past devices.
Unfortunately not widely available yet.

Hey all.  I keep on struggling with the Android App. Every time I try to boot the RP app, it's about 50-50 if it works and starts playing, or it crashes and I get a usually grey, sometimes black screen that doesn't go away.  This is on nvidia shield and google chromecast with google TV (the new chromecast runs the full ATV operating system).. 

Anything I can do? Bugreports? Beta versions? Call up Google on your behalf?

Small aside, the images RP shows are beautiful but tend to be fairly low resolution, or am I imagining things? Any chance we can go to 4K images on 4K displays?

That's odd. You might try a different browser & see what happens. No other reports of problems like that, though.

Not my site, I'm just a listener.
I use Firefox, or Safari, or Opera. Chromium doesn't play the music, never found out why up to today.

Keep pressing more often-times. If your credit-card won't be blocked by the card issuing company, then this practice will eventually drain your account and credit line, and rewards will surely be given unto you, once you've made it behind the pearly gates.  (This internet surely is a "wonderous" thing, and credit cards shouldn't be used for online payments. Just sayin'.)
 

I'm not even getting to the point where it would ask me for payment details, and I pressed dozens of times. I'm stuck on the first menu. And, btw, Paypal sounds worse to me than credit card. What would you suggest?

I didn't find any link to report that directly from song-page (let's consider it as feature request). If I miss some more suitable topic, let me know.

Thanks!
 

This is a fine topic for that. Looks like you found a bug in the website code. That info is correct in the database that the display *should* be pulling it from, but it's coming from an old, incorrect source. 

Thanks for spotting that!

You should have a great connection most of the time,  some of the US servers are in Dallas.  Any hiccups should be temporary.

For a tv device,  I'd recommend the newest Chromecast dongle with android tv,  but the firesticks work fine,  some of the older ones were a bit slow,  not sure about their latest.

The windows app isn't being maintained,  I think it got abandoned with windows phone.  
But  you can install the website as a "progressive web app"   for an app experience,  and  pin a shortcut to the taskbar.

I'm in Lubbock, Texas using AT&T fiber. The connections and bandwidth are pretty consistent and stable. I'm not having issues with YouTube or other streaming/large downloads, etc.
This morning, I launched the site with Chrome and set it back to FLAC and it's been playing flawlessly for the last two hours. Since nothing changed on your side and nothing changed on my side, I'll blame it on Sunspots or solar radiation. :) The streaming links work great on my receiver, but audio only, no slide show. The slide show on a 65" is really impressive and really adds to the audio experience. I send the HDMI from the computer to the TV and then send the audio return to the receiver and use Dolby ProLogic IIx+THX to play the audio FLAC in 7.1 to the speaker system. A little complicated, but it works beautifully. The FLAC encoding really adds to the THX bass and dynamic range.

I was thinking about buying a Fire Stick from Amazon just for having a RP app on the TV itself and skip the computer to HDMI extra stuff. Alternatively, maybe you could talk Samsung into having a RP app available on their newer TVs. 

Also, do you have any plans to update the old Windows app with the current features like multiple stream selections and compression choices? I can't get my friend to stop using the old app. It's also easier to recommend to new users like I do with the Android app.

Anyway, thanks again for your time, and keep up the good work with supplying the best streaming service on the planet!!
Thanks again to Bill and Rebecca for their excellent taste in music and audio appreciation!!

Nothing has really changed in the past couple of days on our end.
It might return to normal in a few days.    In the meantime the main thing you can do is lower the quality till it's stable.

In addition rebooting any networking equipment in the house is always worth a try,  but won't help if the issue is upstream.   

————————

You can also try listening via the stream links on a streaming  player like vlc  and set a really high buffer.

Hi! The last few days I've had the music stop and start about every 2 seconds when set to FLAC after playing fine for a couple of hours or so. Changing to Ultra seems to play normally (but still drops out, just not as often). I noticed that Ultra seems to buffer ahead about 1-2 minutes, but FLAC does not seem to  buffer at all. I've checked my bandwidth which is a fairly steady 124mbx download and 48mbs upload (megabits per second, not bytes). This is using a Chrome browser on Windows 10. I checked the QoS settings on the router, and they are correct.  Nothing has changed, except Windows updates, and never had this issue in the past. A couple of days ago it was doing this and I tried the Edge browser and it played FLAC fine, while Chrome would not. I rebooted and Chrome started working. Today, neither Chrome or Edge plays without 2-3  second interruptions on FLAC, even after rebooting the computer and router. I'm pretty sure the issue is probably on my end, but just in case, has anyone else been having this issue for the last week  or so? As of this writing, FLAC won't play at all without stuttering every 2 seconds.

Also, the past few weeks, the music when it does play normally on FLAC would randomly stop, usually on the "listener Supported" break. Clicking on synch would start again, until the next break and stop again. (Very random, not consistently)  This would seem to suggest something on your end, since it was tied to the Bill or Rebecca breaks. One time, I let it sit stopped and it started playing about 10-15 minutes later all by itself. When it does this the slide show would occasionally freeze on one slide, but the music kept playing. Clicking on synch would get everything working for awhile, as well as skipping to the next song. Skipping a song seems to make it more stable for an hour or two, then back to stopping and starting. It's not a pause, just silence while the music continues in time.
I called a friend who listens with the old Windows app and he reported the stops and starts, but briefly, and then said everything was working fine after the first few stutters.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks!!

Hi! The last few days I've had the music stop and start about every 2 seconds when set to FLAC after playing fine for a couple of hours or so. Changing to Ultra seems to play normally (but still drops out, just not as often). I noticed that Ultra seems to buffer ahead about 1-2 minutes, but FLAC does not seem to  buffer at all. I've checked my bandwidth which is a fairly steady 124mbx download and 48mbs upload (megabits per second, not bytes). This is using a Chrome browser on Windows 10. I checked the QoS settings on the router, and they are correct.  Nothing has changed, except Windows updates, and never had this issue in the past. A couple of days ago it was doing this and I tried the Edge browser and it played FLAC fine, while Chrome would not. I rebooted and Chrome started working. Today, neither Chrome or Edge plays without 2-3  second interruptions on FLAC, even after rebooting the computer and router. I'm pretty sure the issue is probably on my end, but just in case, has anyone else been having this issue for the last week  or so? As of this writing, FLAC won't play at all without stuttering every 2 seconds.

Also, the past few weeks, the music when it does play normally on FLAC would randomly stop, usually on the "listener Supported" break. Clicking on synch would start again, until the next break and stop again. (Very random, not consistently)  This would seem to suggest something on your end, since it was tied to the Bill or Rebecca breaks. One time, I let it sit stopped and it started playing about 10-15 minutes later all by itself. When it does this the slide show would occasionally freeze on one slide, but the music kept playing. Clicking on synch would get everything working for awhile, as well as skipping to the next song. Skipping a song seems to make it more stable for an hour or two, then back to stopping and starting. It's not a pause, just silence while the music continues in time.
I called a friend who listens with the old Windows app and he reported the stops and starts, but briefly, and then said everything was working fine after the first few stutters.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks!!
