I am using Linux Mint but when I am doing maintenance in XP I like some entertainment.  I am using Google Chrome and turned off all security extensions because Ghostery would not allow it to run in linux.  Here is the station that I am listening to:  http://www.iheart.com/live/943-FM-WZZR-725/?cid=main.html&pname=2134&campid=play_bar&autoplay=true
 
If anyone else is having or has any ideas I would love to hear them.  I am guessing it is a simple fix but I am lost as it usually works fine.  Don't know what I did to break it if anything.

Edit: Moved topic from Windows XP to the more appropriate forum.~ Animal

I believe that is something to do with my O.S. as it works in Linux.  It will not work in Firefox either in my XP O.S.  That is why I posted it there.  Good enough.

I just verified it works fine on my XP SP3 ThinkPad. Firefox 31 and Google Chrome 37. Perhaps your Flash plugins are outdated. iHeart requires up to date browsers and plugins:

sdfox 7, I got it, you were right, the browser was out of date.  I guess with XP it is not keeping up with things as it should, and it took a long time to update perhaps I was way behind.

Internet Explorer (all versions 6 through 8) is no longer supported or updated on Windows XP. The final version came out 5 years ago. Has nothing to do with XP keeping things up to date,

 

With XP's end of support you should be running Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Opera.

I was saying that my xp install was not keeping up on things, what I meant really was Google Chrome, or really any browser in xp as I don't use it much.  Now I know why, I did a system restore recently, that must have been it.
