KUOZ Streaming Help

KUOZ 100.5FM LP streams live through a locally hosted ShoutCast server. The stream can be accessed in a locally installed media player at the following URLs:

For iTunes: http://kuoz.ozarks.edu:8000/listen.pls

For Windows Media Player: http://www.ozarks.edu/includes/scripts/kuoz.asx

The "Listen Live" link on this page should allow you to open the live stream in your web browser. However, be aware that the link has only been tested in IE 7, IE 8, Opera 11.60, and Google Chrome 16.0.912.75m. The link will not work in the FireFox or Safari browsers, and may not play in a supported browser if the Windows Media Player plugin isn't properly installed.

When is the KUOZ live stream available?

  1. KUOZ makes the live stream available 24-hours a day, seven days a week. However, should the ShoutCast server experience problems, or in the event of network issues, the stream may not be unavailable. University of the Ozarks makes no warranty that the stream will be available at any given time.
  2. If you are unable to access the live stream, send an email message to Susan Edens, Ozarks' Director of Broadcasting (sedens@ozarks.edu). Please note that weekend or evening outages may not be resolved until the next business day.
