Smile listening to bbc sound


Dear Guys - I really enjoy my operating system - It's called Debian - V4. I like it so much I contributed a small amount to the cause and probably will again. Choice is FAB.

When I try to listen to any BBC site content it seems to want to give me media player or realplayer. Do I have any options or must I address this with the British Broadcasting Corporation? I pay a licence fee so I'm sure they will listen...

choosing real player in the preferences worked for me. it wouldn't load anything using mplayer, but it could have been my configuration. if you don't want to install real player, maybe some other plugin would handle the WM content, xine plugin, etc.
