Finally I have heard some news from Live365 to get excited about. They will be upgrading their servers and web-based radio player to use FLASH instead of the Javascript DHTML they currently use.

Alot of people seem to have problems with the web-player and just can not get it to play. Flash on the other hand is universal and does not have as many problems as the current technology they are using.

I believe the upgrade for is happening this month, will keep you posted in this thread.

Flash on the other hand is universal

(from http://www.thefreedictionary.com/universal)
3. Applicable or common to all purposes, conditions, or situations:

I'm sure the word you meant to use is proprietary since last time I checked there is no Flash support under Solaris, OS/2 (or eComStation) or most handheld devices (cell phones, PDAs, etc) just to name a few.

Java on the other hand is open-source, licensed under the GPL and available for just about every OS.

(excerpt from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Criticism_of_Adobe_Flash)
As of May 2008, Adobe has yet to release a Flash Player for the x86-64 architecture on any operating system.[10] There is to date no Linux Flash Player for non-x86 compatible processors (e.g. x86-64 native, PowerPC, ARM, etc.). Adobe employees have said the Flash implementation is very 32-bit specific and porting to 64-bit systems would require a lot of effort.[11] Adobe claims to be currently working on a 64-bit version.[12] Adobe has not yet released any of their development software for any Unix-like operating system except Mac OS X.

On Linux, sound output from Flash Player 9 may not work on certain combinations of Linux distribution and hardware. The PS3 web browser uses an obsolete version of Flash (licensed from Macromedia) that is not compatible with most modern websites.

So now it looks as if Flash support under 64-bit versions of Windows may also not be forthcoming. I know you have no control over the changes made at Live365, but the reality is this: changes which prevent a certain percentage of the Internet users from using your service should not be seen as "progress" or "improvements."

I have two modes: wiseass and dumbass. Mode is determined by current blood alcohol level.

Drinking is a sport. In order to be competitive, you must practice on a regular basis. Although you can practice alone, it is much more fun to practice with friends. If you're out of shape and practice too hard, you will regret it the next day.

Life is a disease. It is sexually transmitted and always terminal.
