    Yes. Seen it before. Not really explored it.

    Just tried to load it as a favourite in LMS. No sound!
    I just tried (US) and it plays. Takes a few seconds to start (like Ronnie mentioned)...I also played it in a browser on windows

      It does for me now after some messing. My British Telecom contract rolled over yesterday, and that seems to have upset a few things. I have just had to reboot PiCorePlayer and the Chromecast Audio.

      For the Brits in this forum I haggled hard with BT - my block of flats now has a fibre installation from Toob to every door which yields 900Mb/s down and up for £25. My FTTC Fibre 1 with BT gives 60Mb/s and 20 upload - plenty fast enough for me, but BT had to beat £25 - I got it for £22 and kept the phone number which I don't need. (Vonage offered with Toob at extra cost.) The BT phone is now "Digital Voice" which is what BT calls their new VOIP service. Transition was seamless - I just had to pull the telephone plug out of the wall and stuff it in the back of the Router. They seem to be doing this well, but are getting grief for turning off the steam powered telephone service. For years I have used VOIP with a Siemens Gigaset hybrid DECT/VOIP phones and Sipgate accounts.

      Well that was off track! But yes http://rondo.iradio.fi:8000/klasupro.flac now works and sounds good. If I click the URL in Chrome on my Chromebook the station plays on the default ChromeOS audio player. LMS is more convenient, as always!

      Some nice piano music on Rondo now. Thanks for the prompt, Van Man.

        VOIP is great until your broadband goes down, you can't even phone up to complain about the broadband [emoji1787]

          you guys don't have cell phones? .

          How about using a cell phone in a location of no cell coverage to report that your power is down. Then you realize your phone was working because it was using wifi calling, which is down with the power. Of course, this is a new realization to you every time it occurs!

            Isn't that what Mobile (Cell) phones and neighbours are for?

            In the 13 years I have occupied this flat I have lost the steam phone line three times and the internet never! The problem was the BT wireman messing with the connections in the street cabinet. My Father-in-Law kept his internet in a neighbouring flat while losing his telephone, but for a different reason. Someone at the exchange had turned him off.

              while we are telling these stories, I have a seasonal cabin in an area in Northern NY, where there are maybe 20-30 people on a long dirt road. For the longest time all we had was DSL on old, crappy, undocumented phone lines, that nobody understands, buried in the dirt, sometimes sticking out. In the spring, when a family would come in to open their camp, the phone/dsl truck would come to hook them up and mess with the wiring in what we call "tombstones" by the road. As a result someone else would go down. Often it was me. It got pretty funny loosing internet and quickly jumping in our trucks to go down the road to find the service truck to tell him what he caused (and block him from leaving). It got to the point where we all got anxious when we saw their trucks going down the road. I would turn on a sb radio so I could hear if I went down!

              It got to where if the internet went down, my wife would say "well, the cummings must be here!"

              A year ago we got new fiber (part of an initiative to get "high speed" in rural underserved areas). But even seeing their trucks get us a bit anxious. We have not healed.
