When you click on the stream buttons on our site, it will attempt to download and open a .m3u file. This is a playlist file for the Brooklands Radio stream. Some computers will not automatically open the .m3u file, so you might try manually opening the .m3u file in your favorite media player. You can do this by copying and then pasting the "URL" llinks listed above into the URL box on your chosen media player - for example this can be found in Windows Media Player as the second item down on the "File" menu as "Open URL". If the media player still won't play our stream, you might have to make sure you have the right codecs installed to play Mp3 or AAC files.
