    We have a radio broadcast where we discuss poker games and play music. I have a link set so they can listen but it opens a separate page (click the Listen Live button)
    I wanted a way to have it embedded in the site (its wp with Twenty fourteen theme)
    so they click the link or a radio player and it plays only my radio url there on my site, no new windows opening etc.

    Any thoughts? or way to accomplish this? I tried shoutcast and icecast but i must be missing something cuz they didnt play.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Hello @pcfixme,

    A quick and dirty way is to iframe the entire player page into your website’s sidebar.

    Here’s a sample code to use:

    <iframe src="http://fastcast4u.com/player/thoyurko/" width="400" height="400"></iframe>

    (You’d put this code into a text/html widget in your sidebar)

    I used a width of 400px because that appears to be the width of your sidebar. Feel free to adjust the width and height values to your heart’s desire.

    This works, but with a little oddity (eg the Facebook LIKES button overlapping the FastCast4U logo), but I’m sure you can live with that. Here’s how it appears on a test page I create on my site:

    A cleaner approach would be to fetch the actual stream (instead of the entire player page) and embed it on your website, essentially creating your own player. Unfortunately, I don’t have the time to investigate that for you now.

    Thank you so much!!!that will probably work!
    Can a background pic be added or will it pull from the radio url?
