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

Note - please be patient during this step, as this list is usually very large and slow to load.

 

Step 6 - Select 'Windows Media Player' from the 'Choose An App' option

Windows Media Player will now be your default player for .m3u files, and you'll be able to access the WVIA-FM stream without interruption!
