How Do I Listen to the WVIA-FM Stream on a Windows 10 Machine?

Posted by WVIA Admin on

Are you having trouble listening to the WVIA-FM stream on your Windows 10 computer? Certain Windows 10 machines are configured to have Microsoft Groove Music as the default media player, which is incompatible with the WVIA-FM stream. In just a few simple steps, you can configure your machine to play our stream - and you'll only have to set it up once!

Step 1 - Go to your Settings
