WUVT: Radio for Everyone! 90.7 FM


WUVT has offered an Internet simulcast stream for nearly two decades. Just press the play button on the little radio robot guy's face! He won't mind; he likes it.

Mobile Options

We do not have an official mobile app, and we do not recommend or endorse any apps in particular. However, we have found that the following apps work well, and test against them:

Install the app and copy one of the direct stream links from below. (We recommend the 128 kbps OGG stream.) Next, open the Network Stream option under the menu and paste the link you just copied.

Direct Stream Links

If you have an outdated web browser or would prefer to listen using a desktop application, we have a few other options you can use. The following streams are available:

Ogg Vorbis (recommended)

We recommend using VLC as a desktop player. VLC is cross-platform and supports nearly every popular audio and video codec imaginable. To play our stream, simply copy one of the links above, open VLC, go to Media -> Open Network Stream, and paste the stream URL.

Other players known to work well include mplayer, WinAmp, Foobar2000, and mpv. We have also done cursory testing of several other applications, including xmms2 and audacious. Configuring these applications is left as an exercise for the reader. If you find another player that works well, send us an email at it@wuvt.vt.edu, and we'll add it to the list.

About the Stream

Our webstream is generated on donated hardware using 100% free software. WUVT uses Ogg Vorbis, an advanced audio codec built for streaming audio with better quality than most commercial codecs (MP3, Real, Windows Media, etc.) at comparable bitrates. The AAC stream is provided for the convenience of users of particular operating systems which do not support Vorbis by default. All streams support TLS by default; however, they can be accessed using non-encrypted HTTP on port 8000, should your software or device not support TLS. Our stream is distributed using Icecast and generated with Darkice.
