please be a bit more specific. what type of streaming audio? a link, perhaps?
the thing with streaming audio, is most is written for MS media player or Real Player. if you install MPlayer for Linux & install the proper codecs for it, it will play everything. also, what you could try to do is check the file extension for the streaming audio your trying to play (usually it's .asp or .asx) & look in file associations to see what's associated to play those file types. if one player isn't working, choose another. if none is associated, tyhen create the file type & choose a player. if you're using KDE, you can do that in Kontrol Center (IE: configure your desktop)->components->file associations. i'm sure there's something similar in other DE's, but i use KDE so i can't help there. also, check file association in your browser's preferrence section & make sure the proper player is set there.
