internet radio


In windows vista I can listen to http://www.planetradiocity.com/internetradio/index.php
In ubuntu 8.04 this live radio does not play. It seems it wants window media player which is not in linux (thank God). But I have mplayer,mozilla-mplayer.
Basically I wanted to download the audio being played.
In some cases (like http://icecast.commedia.org.uk:8000/theeyefm.mp3.Here mplayer plug-in played well in firefox browser.) I used 'wget' & got live mpeg stream.

In windows , there is windows media player firefox plugin for firefox.
(1)Does that mean wmp format stream cannot be played in linux ?
(2)I tried to 'wget' mms://wms.absoluteradio.co.uk/absoluteradio.co.uk/a8_hi?u= but got unsupported scheme.
What do you suggest ?

In sky.fm songs are played via embedded flash which is disabled from our router.
At 977music.com the other option is windows media player which does not work in linux.

Windows Media Player Plug-in
You need this plugin, or something that can handle windows media player streams in firefox. On my gentoo system the mplayer-plugin seemed to handle it ok for me, but there was a flag to enable windows media streams. You may need to research for your distro how to manage this.

Where exactly on that page do you click to play the radio? Do you have to login to see it or something?

In Ubuntu you can install the internet radio program streamtuner from the repositories. Streamtuner will let you listen to many internet radio stations. You may need either xmms2 or audacious media players to use with streamtuner.
http://icecast.commedia.org.uk:8000/theeyefm.mp3.Here
I get a "The file you requested could not be found" when clicking on your second link.

You just need to wait, it starts automatically
However, at my system it takes about 30 sec before the sound start

Still when I visit http://www.planetradiocity.com/internetradio/index.php I get a still image at the position where I get windows media player in vista.
Also I can play local .wmv file in my browser in ubuntu.
If any ubuntu user can hear radio at http://www.planetradiocity.com/internetradio/index.php . Please suggest ?
also i have noticed that if I click on image (where wmp appears in vista) for first time in tab I get message with OK button
Code:
an error occured
Could not open location; you might not have permission to open the file.
Clicking again on still image does nothing.

Atleast I found out that I can dump stream (which I could not wget) using mplayer .
Code:
mplayer mms://wms.absoluteradio.co.uk/absoluteradio.co.uk/a8_hi?u= -dumpstream -dumpfile ~/Desktop/something
But I cannot play it simultaneously in same command.Currently I open another console & run
Code:
mplayer /home/lxuser/Desktop/something
My question in previous post about http://www.planetradiocity.com/internetradio/index.php is still unsolved.

Finally
I saw this page http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/...n+with+Firefox which told to install gnome-mplayer,gecko-mediaplayer which I did though test page (http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/testpages/wmp11.html) of plugin worked even before doing this.
Again I went to http://www.planetradiocity.com/internetradio/index.php & as usual got it non-functioning .
This time I right clicked & chose copy Then ran that link i had copied via mplayer
Code:
mplayer mms://216.185.43.237/radiocity%201
VOILA! It worked fine.
