• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Hi, I have a feed that for two days now is showing that it is online, but when you try and connect to it, it says that it is offline. I have had to stop and restart ScannerCast both days. What could be causing this?

Are you using the player that pops up on broadcastify???

If so this has been happen to me as well over few days. The feed shows online but when try to play the feed shows an X and player never starts and it's been random off and on my on all my feeds.

I downloaded scanner deluxe for my iphone so when this happens can pull up the app and see that feed is fine and still online. Also might give Radiofeed a try it just as easy to use as scannercast and it has log at bottom of feed that shows when feed is offline or connected unlike scannercast.

Radiofeed can be found here ProScan

I've been having the same issues. Scannercast shows connected / online, and the web shows it online, but it will not play half the time.
