I see from earlier post that you have a Reciva-based radio.
So try the stream URL (not the one with https) in your My Streams and see if it works.

Hi

I think that works as I have that stored already in my radio. So should I just resubmit using this?

http://5.39.71.159:8639/;

On the Reciva website?

ETA: when I try adding it, I get the following message...

A station with station name: Reclaimed Radio or stream URL: http://5.39.71.159:8639/; has recently been added. Please allow 24 hours for it to appear in our database.

I've changed the streaming URL of https://radios.reciva.com/station/57502 to the one you suggested. Allow 24 hours to appear in search results.

 Reciva ID: 57502
This station has FAILED the Reciva stream test (last checked: 2018-08-08; broken since: 2018-08-08)

Hi

This is what I see now - but it's definitely up and live?

Reciva clearly has a problem with the two streams that we have tried. I will ask my contact at Reciva to have a look.

Thank you - it's just not even allowing us to try either one now :(

The two streams are working in VLC on my computer, it is just that the Reciva stream testing system won't accept either for some obscure reason.

Thank you for looking at this - is there anything else we can try?

No, only Reciva can sort this out.

Ah ok - is this something I can raise with them? Will they listen?

I have written to my contact at Reciva who is responsible for maintaining the Reciva station database and who is also a member of this forum.

I am told by Reciva that the link http://orion.shoutca.st/tunein/reclaimedradio.pls has a hidden redirect to HTTPS, that's why it's failing.

It looks like my change to http://5.39.71.159:8639/ didn't take hold, but Reciva have now updated the station to this link from their end and it should appear shortly in the listings.

That’s brilliant, many thanks.

I wonder what the redirect is all about...

The redirect is probably related to Apple & Google & Amazon (Alexa) pushing sites to use https.
Adding https does not mean that the non-https has to be removed as well but it is sometimes a consequence (deliberate or accidental).
My guess is that it was an unplanned side-effect.
Clearly a non-https version remains in this case.
