Player is showing “Buffering…” very often and I am not able to listen to the songs at that time. Why it happening and what is the solution for it?

Gloria Radio is broadcasting all of its contents in CD Quality (128Kbps). Buffering happens when the internet connection speed goes low. We recommend having an internet connection with a minimum speed of 256Kpbs or more for having an uninterrupted listening experience of Gloria Radio. Please note that the actual connection speed of your internet may be much less than the announced speed during some peak usage times.



I am playing Gloria Radio on my mobile and while driving it stops playing in between and restart after a while. Is there any fix for this problem?

When you are playing Gloria Radio on your mobile while travelling, you are depending on the 3G or 4G data connection from your service provider. Just like your phone reception, data service reception also depends on the availability of the transmission range of the nearby towers. There will be some areas where in there are no reception available. When you enter such areas then the radio stops playing for a while and it automatically restart once you enter back into an area where there is reception. This is the way mobile networks works and we have no control over this.
