What audio is available online?
What do I need in order to listen to WMHT-FM's live stream?
WMHT-FM and WEXT are streamed in two formats: Windows Media and MP3. Since you're reading this page, you're probably on a device that has an internet connection. The computer must also have a sound card, and speakers or headphones.
To listen to our MP3 streams, you need one of the many audio players that can play MP3 format streams. Our favorite of the free MP3 players is Apple's iTunes (it plays on Windows too, not just Macintosh). There are also free versions of WinAmp and Real Player. Follow any of these buttons to download the free MP3 audio player of your choice:
To listen to our Windows Media streams, we recommend you download the latest version of Windows Media Player for your operating system. It's free, and there are versions for both Windows and Macintosh.
Sometimes the sound cuts out when I listen to the live stream. Why?
Usually this means there are temporary problems on the internet somewhere between our audio servers and your computer or mobile device - it often resolves itself within a few minutes. You may also hear interruptions in the audio if there is a problem with your computer/mobile device hardware or software or if your internet connection is very slow.
I have the hardware and software I need, but I am not able to connect to the WMHT stream. What can I do?
It is possible that the listening capacity has been reached, which is why it is important that users disconnect from the stream when they are finished listening or are away from their devices. Please try back later. If you continue to experience problems, please let us know.
