How can I listen online?
Listen via our pop-up player here
I click “Listen Online” but nothing happens.
You may have a pop-up or ad blocker program installed on your computer that is preventing the listen online player from displaying. While many types of pop-up blockers are available on the Internet, most are located within a toolbar and may appear at the top of your browser. Disable your pop-up blocker or instruct it to “allow pop-ups from www.spiritradio.ie”
I set up the listen online player to use Windows Media Player but my player gets stuck on “Connecting” or “Ready” and I don’t hear any sound.
The Internet connection you’re using to listen online is not allowing a commonly used streaming protocol called RTSP. Windows Media Player can easily be configured to bypass the RTSP protocol and use another common protocol called HTTP. To do this, within the Windows Media Player program on your computer, go to the Tools menu and select Options. Then click on the Network Tab and make sure only HTTP is checked. Press OK.

I can listen online but it stops frequently. Can this be fixed?
This is one of the more common issues seen on the Internet. You may be experiencing interruptions on your Internet connection. This causes the listen online player to re-buffer. If the problem persists, click setup on the listen online player and choose low quality. If that doesn’t resolve the issue, contact us.
I click “Listen Online” but don’t hear sound or hear distorted sound.
Check your speaker and/or headphones connections.
If using speakers, check to make sure the speakers are on.
Check the sound settings on your computer to insure your speakers and/or headphones are not muted.
I am listening online through TuneIn but the stream keeps repeating itself ?
This usually happens because your device has cached previous audio, to fix this switch to a different station and then switch back to Spirit Radio. If this doesn’t fix first try restarting your phone or app.
If the issue persists please get in touch with us via [email protected]
