Technical Support for listening to Pet Fish Talk.      
Thank you for your interest in listening to Pet Fish Talk, which is a radio talk show delivered over the internet.

If you are having trouble listening to Pet Fish Talk, this web page is designed to help you.
 
 
Pet Fish Talk shown running in the Windows Media Player.    
 
 

The Windows Media Player,
shown to the left, is a widely available program used to play audio files, like Pet Fish Talk, over the internet.
 
 
To hear Pet Fish Talk, you must have a program installed in your computer to play the audio files. The most widely used program is Windows Media Player, which we will abbreviate WMP.

WMP comes installed in most computers and is free. Click here for more about WMP, which does not seem to require a powerful computer, but it does seem to run best on Windows 98 and the more recent versions of Windows. We use Windows XP, which seems to work well for us.

 
 
Pet Fish Talk, like most audio files, can play in iTunes.
 
 
You can also play Pet Fish Talk in iTunes, a software program available from Apple Computer. iTunes runs on both Macintosh and PC computers.
 
 
Listening to the Live Show.
 
If you have trouble
listening to the live show between 1 and 3 pm, Pacific Time, on Wednesday, then copy the next line and paste it into your Windows Media Player.
 
http://serv.adspeed.com/ad.php?do=clk&aid=29130
 
If that doesn't work, then click here
 
 
 
Here are five things to try, if you have trouble listening to Pet Fish Talk on a PC with WMP.
 
1. Re-Install WMP
If Pet Fish Talk will not play in your WMP, we recommend that you uninstall WMP, then re-install it. This solves many problems. Click here for more support for WMP.
 
2. Security Setting
Pet Fish Talk does not seem to play well on a computer with the security set to "High". Try setting the security on your computer to "Medium", and see if that helps. You'll need to restart your computer, after you reset the security.
 
3. Temporary Files
Pet Fish Talk may not play well in the WMP, if the memory or cache file folders in your computer are full. Try emptying your Temporary Internet files and other files such as the contents of the Recycle Bin on your desktop.
 
4. Firewall or Proxy
If you are listening in an office, a firewall or proxy server may be blocking Pet Fish Talk. Click here to go to Microsoft's support page and look for information about firewalls and proxy servers.
 
5. Copy the Link
If a show does not play, copy the link to that show into the Windows Media Player. Here's how you can do that,

Right click on the link to the show in the PFT Listening Guide.
Left click on Copy Shortcut.
Go to your Programs.
Open the Windows Media Player.
Left click on File, then left click on Open URL.
Clear the white box to the right of the word Open.
Left click in the box.
Right click in the box, and click on Paste.
 
The link to the show should appear in the box. Finally click on OK to play the show.

 
We hope the information on this page helps you enjoy Pet Fish Talk, but if you still cannot listen to Pet Fish Talk, click here to send us an email.

My name is Dave, in your archive of previously recorded shows, i can only hear the shows from #'s 120 and down (from april 2005). after that i can only hear the advertisements and not the show itself. The newer shows used to work a few weeks ago but for some reason they have stopped. i have tried everything you have listed in the tech-support page on the  "petfishtalk.com" web-site. The petfishtalk.com web-site is loading very slow and that is the only web-site acting like this. "aquariumfish.net" is  working fine. Do you know what could be going on?

Reply. Hello Dave, Thank you for your email and for alerting me that Pet Fish Talk is not working well for you. I apologize for that.

I tested Pet Fish Talk recently on three different computers at three different locations with different hardware and different internet connections.  It worked well on all three for me. But a few weeks ago the PFT site was slow for me. I actually went to the this tech support page, that I wrote several months ago, and was reminded about deleting temporary internet files.

I use Internet Explorer 6.0 and in that program I clicked on "Tools", then "Internet Options", then the "General" tab at the top, then on "Delete Cookies", on "Delete Files", and "Settings", then I clicked on "View Objects", where I found several programs that I didn't know anything about. Since they were "temporary", I deleted them and now my computer runs much better!! Kind of worries me what those programs were, and how they got in my computer.
 
Maybe this will help you too. I hope so, if not, please test Pet Fish Talk on another computer. I would appreciate more feedback from you about this problem.

I like to keep Pet Fish Talk running smoothly for everyone. By the way have you tried downloading Pet Fish Talk as a PodCast, which is available at the bottom of each Listening Guide? Click here for links to the most recent PodCasts.

Thank you very much for your help. All of the shows are working fine now, and pet fish talk is loading at normal speed once again.
 
Dave
 
Reply. Hello again Dave, thank you for your reply. I'm glad to know that the problem is fixed and PetFishTalk.com is working normally again for you. Best wishes and best fishes !!

radio show is not working correctly ... skipping , etc.

Reply. Not working correctly? skipping? Are you using Windows Media Player to listen? If so, there is information above on this page that will probably help you. Usually, if you un-install then re-install the Windows Media Player, the problem will be solved.

Sometimes you may need to delete your Temporary Internet Files as explained to Dave above on this page. He deleted his Temporary Internet Files, then the shows played again on his computer.
 
Another solution is to download the mp3-file for the show to your computer, then play that file. Click here for more about how to  download shows.

If none of these suggestions fixes the problem, then we will need more information from you. Were you listening to the live show? Or an archive show? Which show exactly? Each show has a number and a date, which show?

Have you tried listening on more than one computer? Does the problem occur on more than one computer?  What sort of internet connection do you have? Our stream is 32K and almost all connections can handle a 32K stream. If you have older 28K-modem, it probably won't work, but 56K-modems are very inexpensive. Even better is broadband, which has become inexpensive and works much better for streaming media like ours.

We hope something in this email helps you. We are very  concerned with you and of our listeners being able to hear the show, and we appreciate your report. Please email us back. Tell us if any of our advice has helped, or that you still need more help.

I was recently trying to listen to the March 16, 2005 Which is Show number 114 and ran into this error.

[error syncing to Stream] http://serv.ad-rotator.com/click.php?
YWNjaWQ9ODcwJmdyb3VwaWQ9NjI0MiZhZGlkPTI3MDI3

 
I tried other parts of the show and they all work fine its just part 3b.mp3 that is not working.  Its in segment 3. Its the very last part of that segment that it gives me that error. the Shows before and after are working fine just that part in that show thats not working properly.
 
Just thought I would let you know. If you happen to find a fix let me know so I can go back and listen to the rest of the show.
 
Thanks for you help and for having such a great show.

Reply. Hello Daniel, thank you for your email. We have not been able to fix this problem yet, but we are working on it, and we will notify you when it is fixed. Thanks again.
 
Later ... OK, we just got it working, you can click on the link and listen to that part of the show. It worries us that this show was uploaded over two years ago, and in that time no one reported that it did not work!
 
If something doesn't work in this web site, send us an email and report it. We'll immediately get to work on it, and get it to work for you and everyone else.
 
Thanks again, Daniel, for taking the time to send us an email.

Hi Tom and Nevin, Sorry to hear that Evan still can't listen to the live show. As you discovered, iTunes works for the podcast, but is not the recommended application to use listen to the live show. Windows Media Player
 
http://www.microsoft.com/ ... /default.aspx
 
VLC
 
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

should work. With Windows Media Player installed on the Macintosh, these steps should work:
 
1. Right click on the link to the live show in the PFT Listening Guide.
 
http://www.petfishtalk.com/scripts/liveshow/liveshow.asx
 
Left click on Copy Shortcut. Open the Windows Media Player. (It's probably in your dock.) Left click on File, then left click on Open URL. Paste the copied URL and click OK. If that doesn't work, try the MMS feed for the show instead of the asx file from above. I've determined that it is:
 
mms://67.19.105.106:8080/fishtalk2
 
(Tom and Nevin, please correct this if it isn't right!)
 
that should work in VLC, Windows Media Player, and in iTunes. To get it to work in iTunes, follow these steps (Flip4Mac required): Make sure the Flip4Mac plug-in is installed -- this will allow you to play the streaming .mms URL in QuickTime. Open QuickTime Player, then use File: Open URL (or just hit Command-U). Type in your URL -- mms://67.19.105.106:8080/fishtalk2 (Pet Fish Talk), then click OK. The URL will take a while to open; be patient, let it buffer as needed. Save the stream as a .mov file using File: Save As, etc. Just save it to your Desktop as an ordinary .mov file; name it as you'd like. Drag the .mov file you just created into your iTunes Library. Play the movie file in iTunes. It will again take some time to buffer and stream, and it will not show up in iTunes as a streaming radio URL, but it will play as one. I would test these steps out, except that it is Tuesday, and I don't normally have access to my mac from 1:00 to 3:00 on Wednesday to verify it.

Reply. Hi Brian, thank you for your email and for the helpful details about how to listen to PFT live on a Mac. We should have recommended that Evan try WMP!! Thanks for reminding us and for all the other details. By the way here is another link to the download for WMP for the Macs with OSX, like Evan's.

And this link seems to work better for us.
