• 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:

sorry if this has been asked/answered before, I looked around but didn't see anything...

When using the HTML5 web player (the default I think), if I stop/pause playback and leave for a while (like overnight), when I return the stream continues playing from where I paused it. For example, it's currently 11:00, but the stream is playing audio from ~15:00 yesterday.

Refreshing the page does not fix it. Restarting the browser (firefox) used to fix it, but now that doesn't work either.

If relevant, the specific stream is
Seattle Police, Fire and EMS, Seatac Airport Police and Fire - Live Audio Feed Web Player

Help?

thanks
Jonathan

Ctrl-F5... clears cache and refreshes page... also in Firefox you can set in your options to clear the cache on shutdown.

thanks...it appears to be shift-F5, at least in Firefox...I'll try that tomorrow. I don't see the clear cache on shutdown setting, but I don't really want that anyway.

well hmm...shift-F5 didn't work, just keep hearing the same snippet of audio every time I reload. But today restarting the browser did work.
