NOAA Stream Stopped
« on: September 17, 2014, 08:59:06 PM »
My NOAA stream stopped a couple of days ago. Will not connect to the server. Anyone know if WU is having server problems?

Mine too.. the wunderground stream via edcast tries connecting, disconnects, waits 10 seconds and retries (ad infinitum).

I switched to ScannerCast when I upgraded to Win7 a few months back and so far it is for the most part holding connection.  It was acting strange and I had to manually restart it a couple times this past week so I switched over to RadioFeed for a couple days and it was acting the same way.  When it kicked out I think it was due to a password error.

Another thing I've noticed is the Flash Player image has went mia on my webpage and also on their website for me.

Yeah, I got the same thing. An authentication error when I tried to connect..  Invalid password, etc.  I filled out a support ticket and sent to weather underground.  Who knows if I'll get a response.

Yup, I got same error. 

I went to here, http://audioplayer.wunderground.com/  and http://www.wunderground.com/wxradio/

Only a few stations listed and couple I checked are still working.

Seems like WU does not care about the NOAA streaming project. We are all trying to provide a service and they are not very serious about keeping the stations online. Last time it was down for almost a week. Emailed them a couple of days ago and still have not received a response.

I agree.  Seems like we worry about keeping it going more then they do.  Worse part is that the streams are not just benefiting WU any longer.  NOAA has links to them and other Apps are using the streams.  My county EMA uses my stream in their app.

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/fairfield-county-ema-ohio/id860019260?mt=8

Mainly for this reason I have my weather radio, computer, and DSL modem all on UPS to buy some time until I can get my generator up and running during power failures.

Anyone know of a way to stream on your own web host server, instead of going through weather underground?  Just in case they decide to completely remove the radio stream.  Not sure about anyone else, but the NOAA radio page on my site is quite popular based on stats.

Sadly, to build your own stream you'd need a dedicated Linux (virtual) server and Icecast (http://icecast.org/).
You can't run streams on a shared hosting environment -- you'd have to have a real or virtual server to make it work.

OK.  Thanks!  Looks like all stations have been taken off the Weather Underground site now.  Bummer.

I wondered about sending a feed to one of the police scanner sites. Locally the HAM severe weather call in frequency is being rebroadcast on the net.

Hi Mark,

Radioreference.com used to NOT allow the rebroadcast of the NWS radio network, but I haven't looked in a long time, so that may have changed.

That was the main one I was thinking of.  I googled and broadcastify looks like another possible.  I guess we'll just have to ask around of those types of places and see if any are open to us as an option.

Edit hopefully WU does not have some sort of a copyright sort of deal filed with doing it.  Just thought of that.

The wunderground streaming server was rebooted today. Maybe they are having some technical difficulties they are trying to resolve. Before the server uptime was June 30, 2014.

Edit:  Has anyone tried reconnecting this afternoon?  I'm at work and do not have access from work to restart the stream.

I received a note from John Celenza of WU saying they were working on resolving the issue.. that was at 10am Pacific.. must be a thornier issue to resolve than expected.  The Icecast server has no streams currently.

Server still offline this morning, cannot even view the status page.  Must have forgot to pay their bill.   :roll:

Wonder if they were hit with some sort of a DOS attack or hacked?  You'd think if it was only a case of a server melt down they would have pulled a backup and/or reinstalled on another server and have been back up long before now.   :-k  You'd also think they would post a notice or send an email like they do in a station not reporting issue to let the member/data contributors know what was going on.

Edit: Some of the tech guys names are not clickable on the staff list.  I don't remember in the past if they were or not.  But have to wonder if some have jumped ship since the change in ownership.

Kinda strange, AudioStream goes down the same time a whole raft of Shoutcast TV and radio stations do. :-" [-X

Ever since Winamp went on the auction block, all streaming services seemed to suffer. #-o :shock:

Don't know if it's related but I went to the "My PWS" page and it's acting like I'm registering a new station.  I can't get to my settings.

I thought that it was just me!  Tried to edit my existing PWS, got a page with no info filled in but saying that my location was verified.....

Yep same here. Also it's counting 3 visits again every time I reload. They seem to be having many issues.
