WFMU, a listener-supported, non-commercial radio station headquartered in Jersey City, New Jersey, broadcasting at 91.1 (and at 90.1 as WMFU) MHz FM, offering a free-form format, has begun testing live streaming audio in HTML5.
WFMU’s test page states:
This demo of our live mp3 stream seems to work well on Chrome (Mac/PC) and Safari (Mac). No flash is being used.
Firefox, which does not support mp3 natively, streams our ogg stream but it’s not quite there yet. Firefox users will need to hit the pause/play buttons to let the stream buffer a bit and then it should play fine. IE, you’re hopless [sic].
WFMU is the longest-running free-form radio station in the United States.
Mac Safari or Chrome browser users, try out their HTML test here.
