Have problem listening to Internet Radio

I am using Ubuntu 5.04 and want to listen to whcih gives the listener a choice of players:

Windows Media (Optimized for Voice)
Windows Media (Voice & Music)
Apple iTunes
Real Player
Open Standard MP3

What is the best choice of these?

AFAIK neither the first three nor Quicktime are Linux proggies. Clicking on Realplayer gave me " Totem Movie Player " which attempted to open it and kept buffering, but never opened. Clicking on either Winamp or Open Standard MP3 defaulted to a choice of opening it with Rhythmbox or "other". I looked at other but couldn't find any, so Rhythmbox it was.

When I clicked on the new title which had been added to the list, an error message opened displaying:

" There is no element present to handle the stream's mime type audio/mpeg. "

What is wrong and/or how do I fix it? TIA

The Unofficial Ubuntu Starter Guide is great - the Breezy version is here. Section 7.19 tells how to install XMMS and associate M3U files (which is what the Open Standard MP3 link is).
