Upcoming changes may affect how you listen to Radio Riel

in Radio Riel Information

by Elrik Merlin on Thursday, 23 October, 2014

RR-lightfoot-logo250We would like to inform you in advance of some changes that will happen in the next couple of weeks that may impact how you listen to Radio Riel.

We are consolidating our streams on to a new server system, and as a result, the IP addresses of our streams except Main will be changing.

If you listen to the streams — or have a virtual world parcel that has the media address set to one of our streams —  using an address consisting of a string of numbers like then you will need to change your bookmark. If, however, you use a name, like http://steampunk.radioriel.org, then no change will be needed.

All the links from the top left of this page, and those in our About Our Streams page will continue to work, and you can use the URLs found there, which are as follows:


We will have information on the changes for you in the next week or so, so watch this space.

Thanks for your continuing support of Radio Riel.

i listen often, via tune-in radio. hope they'll be able to find you for me!

Yes, we will be notifying TuneIn of anything that will affect their listings. All six Radio Riel streams are listed on TuneIn, and for the last couple of days we have been publishing a full Playlist on TuneIn for the Main Stream.

The Radio Riel Main Stream won't be affected by the changes.
If you get any problems, let us know and we'll try to sort them out. There is bound to be a short time when TuneIn isn't in sync with our server addresses but we will try and make that as short as we can.

Thanks for letting us know that you use TuneIn - that's very helpful. And thanks for listening!

Just a note about tune-in. Radio riel is not currently (Nov2) available there. Hopefully they will update soon.

FYI, sadly, I've not been able to listen to Reverie (my favorite) on TuneIn for 3 days now.
Main plays (Love it!) as well as Dieselpunk, BUT NOT Reverie, Steampunk, New Toulouse, or Volksmusik. Hope it can be fixed soon, as TuneIn is 70% of my daily listening and Reverie is 70% of that!
You folks are great, and we want to contribute soon!

We sent the updates through to TuneIn as early as we could, but they don't appear to have made the updates yet. At the same time, the old servers should have remained online until November 3.

TuneIn will let you add custom URLs to the player, and add them to favourites. As a result perhaps you could, for the moment, copy the URLs from the top left of the Home Page and paste them into TuneIn.

Our apologies for any inconvenience: while we did our best to avoid this happening, we were not able to get the new servers up and TuneIn updated as quickly as we hoped, and it appears that the old servers have gone off early. 🙁

Thank you for your reply!
I agree that it is more than likely an issue with TuneIn update:
I should have told you that I had previously:
* tried to discard the old link (iPhone)
* tried to copy/paste; "http://reverie.radioriel.org/listen.pls",
"reverie.radioriel.org/listen.pls", "http://reverie.radioriel.org", and "reverie.radioriel.org" all on the iPhone, returning only "no results for" messages.
* I am on TuneIn Pro and my wife is on the free version, having all the same issues.
At least we have Main Stream!
I am submitting this issue to TuneIn in a moment and my wife has done so already. (Squeaky Wheel!)
Thanks again for your Steaming service.
Your dedicated listeners, Kevin & Christina!

Thanks for letting us know, and thanks also for poking TuneIn in the ribs. Once again, sorry for the disruption.

I am pleased to say that all our TuneIn links are working again and I hope they work OK for you too.

The main problem here was in fact that the old servers went off the air earlier than we expected. We were expecting them to remain up until the 3rd but they went off on the 1st. TuneIn updated on the 2nd and it took a while for that to propagate.

Interesting that you couldn't get anything by adding a custom stream URL. I have the TuneIn Pro version on my iPhone and successfully added "http://xxx.radioriel.org" where "xxx" is the stream name, and they all worked fine: not too sure why they didn't work for you. However… hopefully now all is well. Thanks again.
