Listening to Live, Interactive Webcasts
Worldbridges stream live audio using a Shoutcast server. Above is the 'on air status' and listen links for all Worldbridges Channels. When we're 'on air' you should be able to listen with almost any media player including Real Player, Winamp, Windows Media Player, and Itunes. For more information about listening to our webcasts, please watch this Screencast . If you'd like to participate in our webcasts (using skype or other telephony programs), please visit our participation help page.
Listening via the Web
We wish there was an easy 'one click' listening option that would serve all users, but that's not yet possible. To listen to Worldbridges webcasts, click on one of the media player icons above. All of the media players listed below can work, but which one is best and/or easiest for you will depend on how your computer is set up. Please note - You do NOT need to use skype in order to listen to one of our webcasts - you only need to use skype or join the teleconference (see below) if you wish to join the discussion to make comments or ask questions.
The default player link (to a .pls file) is the preferred method of listening. Which program it uses to open the live audio stream will depend on which Operating System you are using and which programs you have installed. It should work with ITunes, Quicktime, Winamp, or Jet Audio. Info about how to change the program that is associated with pls files on your system: Windows * Mac
If you would like to listen with Real Player , simply click on the Real Player Icons above.
If you would like to listen with Windows Media Player, click on the appropriate links above. This will not work if you are using a Mozilla based browser like Firefox or Netscape.

Listening via a teleconference
It is also possible to listen to some of our webcasts by phoning in to a teleconference. To do so, you can call 1-712-451-6100, Access Code: 999374#. This is a U.S. based number and long distance or international calling charges will apply. If the teleconference is in 'presenter mode', you will automatically be muted and others in the conference will not be able to hear you speak. If the teleconference is in 'Q & A' mode, you will be able to un-mute yourself by pushing '6'. In order to maintain audio quality please mute yourself again when not speaking.
