no streaming radio
 
I cannot seem to listen to streaming radio , except for a very few stations like boston pete. I've tried suse 9.1 and now am using fedora c2. I've got mplayer installed with the win32 codecs and the plug in for firefox. I've read a number of posts on this issue, but don't see any answers. Can anyone suggest any solutions or references to help?
Thanks for your help

Try using XMMS to listen to it. All the Internet radio streams I've tried, except for RealAudio, have worked in XMMS. If it's a RealAudio stream, download RealPlayer for Linux, and use that.

I don't think that your ability to listen to streaming music is based upon which distribution you use. Instead, it is which application you are using. XMMS, Totem, and RealPlayer 10 are both capable of handling internet-streaming music. Also, are you referring to browser plugins, or files you download from a site and play in a music player's playlist?

i had some difficulties in the past using mozilla or netscape browsers and solved the problem by changing to opera...
give it a try

He must be talking about streaming content embeded im a web browser window. im guessing some of those stations use windows media 9 or 10. I've never been able to get that to work even with mplayer plugin. I think because windows media 9 -10 use activex controls to call up windows media player which you cant do in linux.

That would make sense (with the activeX).

Yeah, it pissed me off when I discovered that I could no longer watch videos on launch.yahoo.com because of that. Sites like that really should give an option to be able to watch or view with a different format.
