There are many ways to share access to your station’s stream. Sharing your station’s stream widely will help you attract more listeners.
You can find all the various links to you station’s streams by selecting "Settings" from the Navigation Bar, then clicking on the "Station Profile" tab. Scroll down to the "Listen Links" section of the Station Profile pane.
The best links to share with your listeners are your Live365 Station Profile and your Licensed Player link.
The Licensed Player is sometimes also called the Pop-out Player. The Pop-out Player is the best way for your listeners to experience your station! When listeners access the pop-out player, it will open in a new window so they will not accidentally close the tab where the stream is currently playing. The pop-out player will display all the current track information, links for purchasing tracks, accessing lyric information, sharing your station and as well a links to your station’s social media platforms. Read more about the Licensed Player here.
Your Live365 Station Profile provides a great overview of your station. Listeners can read your station description, view your genres and recently played tracks. There is a “Listen Now” button on your Station Profile so they can listen to your stream directly from your Station Profile page.
Sharing stream links on your personal webpage
In the Listen Links section of the Station Profile pane, you will find HTML for a Licensed Player button.
If you have your own custom webpage for your Live365 station, you can copy and paste the Licensed Player Button text into your webpage HTML.
Above is an example of how the Licensed Player Button will look. When your listeners click on the button, they will be taken to your custom pop-out player.
Sharing your stream on Social Media
You can share any of the the Listen Links on your Facebook or Twitter directly, or you can use the Now Playing Widgets embed something a little fancier.
You will find the embeddable code for the Widgets in the Now Playing Widgets section of your Station Profile pane. From the Navigation Bar, select "Settings" > "Station Profile" > "Now Playing Widgets". You can copy and paste the iframe text directly into your Facebook posts. The current song title will continue to update as your station plays different tracks. Listeners can click on the "Listen Now" button on the widget to access your custom Pop-out Player.
