streaming audio


Hi I was just wondering if someone has been able to get streaming audio
to work in slackware 8.1

When I open the streaming audio link in XMMS it seems to do something
but no audio comes out. So I assume its not working.

I'm wanting to play streaming audio from this radio station.
http://www.airamericaradio.com/listen.asp#

I have XMMS and also Mplayer with the gmplayer as the graphical end.

I come across these plugins for xmms here
http://www.xmms.org/plugins.php?category=input
-popCorn gave me file dependency run around
-rmxmms gives this error when running ./configure
"configure: error: *** /usr/local/rmasdk_6_0 not found ***"

Both seem to be looking for many items I don't have, the dependency
run around. After I feed it one item they need another, and another.

I've tried Real Audio too, the Linux version
http://www.real.com/player/?src=realaudio
But I'm also getting dependency problems
GLIBC_2.3' not found (required by /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5)
`GCC_3.3' not found (required by /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5)


If anyone using Slackware 8.1 has gotten streaming audio to work
I would greatly appreciate informing me of how they went about it.
Thank you!!!

what verson of glib and gcc are you using? you prolly running into compile problem because of the age of your compiler (guessing since your using 8.1)

i run slackware 10 and ive never been able to get either the wmv or the real player stream to work with that site. i believe it to be because its a newer format that isnt ported to linux yet. theres a different stream i use to listen to air america with my mplayer albeit a 3hour delay, though it works.

here it is

The stream works fine for me, using Slackware-current, 2.6.10 and RealPlayer 10 for Linux.

you can find out what version of packages you have with either kpackage or pkgtool (im not familiar with 8.1 so im not sure what it uses for a package manager)

I'm familiar with pkgtool, never thought to look in there.
Just tried kpackage and it brang up a nice GUI tool.
Thanks for the tip, never knew of that program.

OK, Here is the run down. I included all types

GLIB
glib-1.2.10-i386-1
glibc-2.2.5-i386-2
glibc-i18n-2.2.5-i386-1
glibc-solibs-2.2.5-i386-2
glibc-zoneinfo-2.2.5-i386-2

GCC
gcc-2.95.3-i386-2
gcc-g++-2.95.3-i386-2
gcc-g77-2.95.3-i386-2
gcc-objc-2.95.3-i386-2

Guess I'll have to try updating those and try realaudio
install again. Maybe i can download an old version of
realaudio... I'll try to look for that first.
