rsATCPlayer is a Windows program that will play .asx files that you have downloaded from liveatc.net.
Note: Theses are live streams, not old recordings.
It is standalone, and can be used with MSFS or XPlane, as it has no connection to or dependency on any simulator.
It supports loading two files at once so you can have an active playing file and a standby file. This allows seamless switching streams, even with the delay involved in spooling up an audio stream asx file.
This program is not affiliated with liveatc.net.
Works nice with FSLTL traffic injector.
You hear live ATC give landing clearance to a Q400, and you look up and see one on short final... how cool is that! Sadly, on the ground live ATC does not match the aircraft movements very well.
Unzip and run the installer rsATCPlayerSetup.msi
rsATCPlayer is a standalone Windows executable and should not be installed into MSFS community folder.
rsATCPlayer needs to write to an xml file in its installation folder, and copy asx files there.
If you install rsATCPlayer in the default location C:\Program Files\rsATCPlayer, Windows will prevent you from saving LiveATC files.
Here are a couple of work arounds, choose one that suits you:
- Set rsATCPlayer to 'Run as Administrator' - Now rsATCPlayer can read/write into its own folder. This is done by right clicking on the icon > Properties > Compatibility then check - Run this program as an Administrator.
- When you install, select a different location in the installer, maybe C:\rsATCPlayer - no problems to read/write here.
