80k Ogg Vorbis Stream Added To TheBlast.FM home page: For Blasting On Linux And Elsewhere
The 80k Ogg Vorbis stream is back on the home page. This is a favorite of some of our Linux Blasters. It pops up in the built-in HTML5 player in Chrome, Firefox, and some other cutting-edge browsers. Launched from Internet Explorer, it will open in Winamp or VLC Player, with full metadata support in the media player. There is no metadata in the HTML5 players in the Chrome and Firefox browsers. Instead, you can get the metadata from our homepage, www.TheBlast.FM. In our re-testing of the player this week, it works much better in Firefox than in Chrome.; Since Winamp support ends December 20th due to AOL giving it the axe, download it while you can at www.winamp.com. It is free. VLC player can be found at www.videolan.org ;It is also free.
