Two questions re: accessing ripped music & listening to streaming audio
 
I have been using Red Hat 9 successfully for one week. It's great. I love it. But I've got a way to go yet.

I am lost about two specific things in my journey thus far:

(1) I've ripped a CD using "Grip" (the music management software included in RH 9), but I have no idea where the "ripped" music is, or how to access it--or which program should be used, for that matter, to access it.

(2) I love listening to NPR--and other stations--in streaming audio on the Net. I've installed RealPlayer for Linux, and it's now up and running now on my system. But I cannot figure out how to access streaming audio links.

Here is an example: <I can't post the link yet b/c I'm so new it says no URL until 5 posts> (the link can be found at WUSF.org (using the .pls audio stream link) ... When I click this link (my hometown NPR station which plays fine ind Windows XP), my RealPlayer executes, buffers all the way to 100%, then says in the bottome lefthand corner that it's playing "live" in 64kbps. But I hear nothing.

Any direction in solving this would be very much appreciated.

Thanks for reading.

Why is people still using RH9 is something of a magical mystical mystery to me. Upgrade your linux mate. Oh and check Grip's config to see where its dumping the files. For the streaming (again, update your box) there are some pretty useful progs out there. Seek and you shall find.

backup ur /home somewhere if there any important data for u otherwise u know it :)

unterkauf 10-13-2005 10:27 PM

unterkauf 10-13-2005 10:36 PM

Try running Realplayer from bash or from the terminal. It should print out errors.

Your sound card could be in use by another program like arts, esound, or flash player.

Check your sound settings in Realplayer. Also run alsamixer or aumix to adjust the settings for the sound card.

You could use Mplayer to play it too. It can play Realplayer files if you have the codec in a certain directory.

You should of moved the Download Manager window so we can see the web address or just making it hard on us.

Some sound cards such as on-board sound require software mixers.

What I read, Fedora Core is broken to my standards. If a distribution that needs special patches for nVidia drivers to work correctly, then it is broken. I never need to patch nVidia drivers for 2.6.x kernels. I also state Mandrake 10 and up as being broken because it requires a descent internet connection speed, which I have, to download headers to compile programs. I recommend using either Redhat 9 or Mandrake 9. I highly recommend Mandrake 9 because it is fool-poof when it comes to making Linux partitions and able to select any filesystem that Linux supports. SUSE is for pussies.
