Realplayer

Hi,

Please can you let me know how I play Real Media (http://www.realplayer.com/ ) streams using Couch Surfer? How do I get this plug-in loaded and working? Here’s an example:

Thank you.

Cheers, Andrew

I was able to get the plug-in installed but the BBC audio would not play. I clicked on the play button inside the Real window, but it would not start playing. Do you still want me to tell you how I did it? It is not that easy to install.

Thank you for trying. Now I’m curious whether this is a BBC-specific challenge, or not. Does your install work with the streams on this URL?

Alternatively, is there another open source alternative to play these streams? Can you suggest how I play the BBC streams using MPlayer?

Thanks again.
Cheers, Andrew
