Listening to live radio emission with mozilla?


Hi .
Can anyone tell me what I have to do so that I can listen to music (live radio emission) with mozilla.
I am using RedHat 9.0 and have the following plugins:
1) File name: mplayerplug-in.so
Video Player Plug-in for QuickTime and Windows Media Player streams using mplayer
2)File name: plugger.so
Plugger version 4.0,
3)File name: libflashplayer.so
Shockwave Flash 6.0 r79
4)File name: libjavaplugin_oji.so
Java(TM) Plug-in1.3.1_08
5)File name: libnullplugin.so
The default plugin handles plugin data for mimetypes and extensions that are not specified and facilitates downloading of new plugins

Any help would be great

well.. kinda.. get realone (realplayer9) and then recompile mplayer to support the real media codecs. then the mplater plugin will be able to automaticlally able to play all real audio streams no problem.

Thanks guys
I just have one very newbie question: How do I recompile mplayer to support the real media codecs?
You see I installed mplayer with apt-get... it does everything for you...
which for a newbie like me is great
Thanks in advance veraMOB

realone installs plugins via a post-install script, so you don't need to recompile mplayer.
if it didn't, i suppose you'd be easier configuring it as a mozilla helper app if you are not used to compiling etc.

please try to explain this to me as I'm the village idiot....
I already installed Realplayer 9 but I still can't hear radio via internet...
all I get is mplayerplug-in loading.... then it doesn't do anything
Sorry about bothering you again with this but I really didn 't understand...
Thanks for your patience, veraMOB

veraMOB, have you figured out how to listen radio via internet?

i too have real player 9, mplayer, and mplayer-plugin installed. my mplayer is fully loaded (installed option Live.com, xmms plugins..., enable streaming, etc)

but when i click on the page where i can listen radio, it pops up a new window with a message:

mplayer plugin
playing {URL address goes to here} ...

few sec later , it turns into:

caching 0.0 (0.0) [caching 0.0%] ....

thats it. it doesn't play anything. that radio button allow me to choose realplayer or window media player right? when, that msg above is what i get when click window mediea player, but when i click real player, i get msg:

mplayer error: no plugin aviable

so, if you got that figured out, please share with us ?

thanks

Hmmm... I've got a similar problem. I've installed realplay 8 plus the upgrade codecs to 9 and everything appears to work fine. Except there's no sound or video. Sort of defeats the object of the exercise. It I download a ram file (say from the bbc news page) ps aux shows me that realplayer is running the ram file, but there's nothing on the screen and there's no sound. Nowt. Odd. Any suggestions as to why realplayer is so shy would be much appreciated.

Try mozplugger-1.4.2.

It works for me with RealOne and Mozilla 1.4 in Slackware 9.1.

Wasted a huge amount of time trying all sorts of other remedies which didn't work but this is the real thing.

# Playing radio
Try using these settings for your helper apps in your browser:
Code:
MIME Type		Helper
audio/m3u 		xmms
audio/x-scpls		xmms
video/x-ms-asf		xmms
audio/rm		realplay
audio/x-pn-realaudio	realplay
audio/x-realaudio	realplay

hi fancypiper,

audio/m3u xmms
audio/x-scpls xmms
video/x-ms-asf xmms

tells xmms to play radio format right? that means i have to upgrade xmms plugin first, is it correct?

That tells the browser to use xmms to play streaming mp3 files. You will need to have xmms installed to be able to use it. I don't think I use an xmms plugin, I just filled in the stuff and when I click an mp3 stream, xmms launches and plays the stream. I haven't bothered with any streaming video (dialup), so xmms may need a plugin to handle that, but it handles mp3 audio streams for me with no problems.

Real one Player locks up (Slackware 9.1)

I've downloaded the binaries for realone; installed them. When I click on a realaudio link Realplayer opens but just hangs. I tried to configure xine to play this format, but the xine engine craps out. I reinstalled the player multiple times without success.

chris, when re-compile mplayer , do we do: ./configure --realdir (points to where /real is installed, or where the codec's installed, such as /Real9/Codec ??)

do u know if there's any diff between mplayer's plugin or plugger (5.0)?
opinion of which is better?

thanks

Ok so I now want to listen to music on the net, or preferably talk radio. I want to stream Rick Emerson's show and Clyde Lewis's Ground Zero, but the file format is under a .exe. I want to use xmms as my sole player for internet sounds, besides watching online videos with Real player.
The reason I ask is because I went from a windoze environment to a linux environment and would like to remain so.
I downloaded the stream which is .exe and I cannot get the thing to play. The player spits out a ton of funky letters, codes, numbers, dots, lines, slashes, etc. Any help on how I may be able to work with this or what are my options?

I'm using Mandrake 9.1 standard.
