Radio through the internet
« on: 2008.04.29, 10:46:47 »
I tried to listen to this internet radio: http://radio.rtl2.fr/player.html, but it didn't work. I got the message "Click
here to download plugin". The plugin doesn't seem to be available. Does anybody know a solution?

Thank you very much.

It worked for me.  I have media player connectivity installed as an addin for firefox and mplayer configured to play video and audio streams.

Hi

I do not get a "Click here to download plugin" but on the other hand nothing seems to be playing. Should I click somewhere on the page to get a radio stream to play?


You may want to look at the mplayer plugin how to http://www.os2world.com/content/view/17999/1/ but add the later plugin rather than the plugin supplied with the mplayer package  http://www.7xx.org/komh/npmp_test.zip

Hi Pete,

I've had virtually no success (ie: virtually none) using MPC or UnPlug to download streams (it seems to require another program to handle the downloading - probably mPLayer and a script to set the parameters would work). I'm considering working on something to handle that, as mPlayer is pretty decent at capturing and saving streams (but would require user intervention to stop it when the stream is complete), but dont have time right now.

To play them (mixed success), I either assign the streams to z!, PM123 or mPlayer - which sometimes works...

HTH,
Robert

Hi Robert

I've been trying to Search the Forum for a discussion that is probably around 2 years old about "internet radio" but have not managed to find it yet - possibly the discussion had no relationship to the discussion Title ie had gone off topic... I have tried radio and train as Search words.

I think it is buried somewhere in the Old Forum...

I seem to recall it was about trying to listen in on train movement/activity in a part of the USA. The links given in the discussion played fine with WarpVision here and I think others were also successful.

Regards

Pete
