How to listen to 3mFM via Live Streaming

Now Playing Artist & Title information.

When we play music & songs from our in-house library (which is most of the time), we send that text information to various places including FM radios & streaming apps.

Not only are details about the currently playing track shown, but in some cases, streaming Apps remember & display the previously played tracks. Online Radio Box shows the last 7 days including date & time.

Music played direct by a Presenter using CDs, Vinyl or other methods, do not send this information, so you’ll need to listen carefully, as the Presenter will generally give that information verbally. Those tracks will NOT appear on our playlist

FM radio display

Radio RDS displays currently playing track ((Where supported. Available in most modern cars).


Streaming channels (new from May 2022)

The current song Artist & Title will be displayed on media players that support it.

Available Streams: 64k AAC+ Stereo, 192k MP3 Stereo (HD) & 64k MP3 Mono (LD)

The 3mFM website embedded media player is supplied for convenience only. Use a Media Player for longer listening.

We recommend using the “Default player” link (below) where possible.

Default Player: This M3U playlist file provides direct links to all of our streaming channels. https://3mfm.com.au/3mFM_Live_Stream_links.m3u

AAC+ (64k Stereo) is the best choice. Great quality & lower data usage. Supported by the majority of devices. http://listen.3mfm.com.au:881/aac

MP3-HD (192k Stereo) is more universal & great quality, but uses more internet data. http://listen.3mfm.com.au:881/mp3

MP3-LD (64k Mono) uses less internet data, but listening quality is not quite as good. http://listen.3mfm.com.au:881/mp3-ld
