streaming audio advice please


I like to listen to live game radio on the nhl.com website, but it only offers to download windoze media player since I usually use Linux. I sent an email requesting to have a choice between windoze media player and real player, but I haven't received a response. (they're affiliated with msn, so I don't think I will) Anyone have any ideas?

Either:

a) Take your business elsewhere or
b) Run WMP under Wine (hard, but can be done if you know what you're doing)

Or you can just dual-boot your machine for the sole purpose of listening to streaming radio with Windows. Ya know, just an option if you that desperite.

I had a suspicion that there weren't too many options. Wine is on my list of projects to do. Maybe I'll just move it up to the top of my list. Thanks for the suggestions.

I'm not too sure, but I think MPlayer might work for this. Perhaps someone with more MPlayer experience would know better than I would. I just got done installing MPlayer and haven't tried it on live streaming audio/video but I would presume that it would work as it reportedly plays WMP files (though I haven't tried this yet). I'll give it a try tonight.

Yes, MPlayer might be able to do it with the right codecs, I'd forgotten about that. To do this MPlayer uses Wine internally of course, but the good thing is you don't need wine set up or installed for mplayer to work.

I'd definately try that first.

Try with view page source first, OR give the mplayer-plugin a try, it works just as good as wmp plugin for me

Here's a link:
http://mplayerplug-in.sourceforge.net/

Cool

The mplayer-plugin doesn't seem to do anything for me at all. I'll have to try different websites to make sure though. In fact, I've noticed that virtually all of my plugins suck in Opera.
