Add a browser extension to play audio streams

Browsers today, like Firefox and Chrome, don't come with built-in players for audio streaming. They expect you to add one that you chose from a list of suppliers. We have found a free extension that works well in your Firefox or Chrome browser.

For Chrome browers: To add an the m3u8 player extension, start by clicking on the three dots at the top right. Go down the menu to "More Tools" and choose "Extensions" from the new menu. This takes you to the extensions page. At the top left click on the three lines beside "Extensions". At the bottom, click on "Open Chrome Web Store". On the new page, find the search box at the top left labeled "search the store". Do a search for m3u8. As of April 3, 2020, the first extension labled "Play HLS m3u8" was available and works. Click "Add to Chrome" and follow the instructions. Chrome is always changing so if your browser does not match these steps, please update it to the latest Chrome browser.

For Firefox browsers: To add an extension, click on the the 3 parallel lines at top right. Go to "Add-ons" and then on the left, pick extensions. A search box is provided at top next to "Find more extensions". Search for the characters m3u8. When the search results show, chose an extension called "Native HLS Playback". Install this.

With this extension in place, click on our streaming links and another tab will open that will play the stream in your browser. You're free to open other tabs and use the browser and the stream will not be interrupted until you close the stream tab.

We don't use Windows Media Player. Its available on Windows computers but as we attempt to use it, it is always problematic.
