Is Internet Radio possible in Linux
I use Windows Media Player so I can listen to the BBC. I am currently in the process of removing Windoze from all my machines and installing Red Hat 8. So is there a Linux equivalent, a player that does internet radio?

I use realplayer. A google search will find others (mplay maybe)? Some attempt to play windows media but I avoid non open source stuff.

Thanks Fancypiper, I totally forgot there was a Linux port of Realplayer.

Pcghost, do you have Samba print sharing setup? I've got Samba running on my Redhat 8.0 box and shared directories work but not print sharing for some reason. I'm losing my mindhere

Sorry, I am strictly filesharing right now. I only print from my desktop machine. Have you picked up the O'Rielly book on Samba? It rules...

Mplayer just will need the exact url of the stream.

yes it's great, but taking that a little further....

also install the mplayerplug-in from sourceforge and also install realplayer or realone. then copy / symlink the real librariy (e.g /usr/local/RealPlayer9/Codecs) to /usr/lib/real and then mplayer will be able to play realaudio such as the bbc7 stream within the webpage.
