Does Chavah work in Firefox?

Q. Can I run Chavah in Firefox?

A. No, not at this time.

Although Chavah will do her best to work with Firefox, it works poorly on that browser due to technological limitations.

Firefox doesn’t support native MP3 audio, the audio format Chavah uses for music streaming. MP3 is a patented audio format, and Mozilla does not wish to pay the licensing fees required to decode MP3s.

Because of this, Chavah can’t play music using the native web technologies. It will try to fallback to non-standard technology, but it’s flakey at best.

The good news is, Firefox will soon support native MP3 audio. Some time around summer 2013, you’ll see a new version of Firefox that plays MP3 audio.

Bottom line: Chavah doesn’t work great in Firefox today. If you want to run Chavah, we recommend Google Chrome. Internet Explorer, Opera, and Safari will also work.

FAQ: How do I request a song?

Q. I don’t see the song request feature in Chavah. Where is it?A. It’s the ‘loudspeaker’ button at the top. Click that button, and then type the name of a song, artist, or album:Click the song you’re looking for, then click the ‘Request’ button:You’re done!Chavah will play the song instantly for you. Other people listening to the station will hear the song request as soon as their current song finishes.(p.s. Don’t like a song that someone requested? Thumb it down. Chavah will play something else for you, and the next time that song is requested, she’ll skip sending it to you.)(p.p.s. Looking for a song, but don’t quite remember the name? This is a great way to find it. Just type anything you do remember about the song, whether album, artist, or name (even if incomplete) and Chavah will do her best to find it for you.)
