If you go onto the BBC website's radio station links you will see a Listen Here panel.

This is the BBC's own player (it used to use Real exclusively) and even on dialup I get 99 per cent continuous streaming, even when surfing elsewhere.

That way I can listen to Wogan etc and also visit favourite websites.

If the BBC player starts to give problems on the odd occasion, you can instantly switch to RealOne.

No good either i dont hear a thing

Have you checked your volume controls?Right click on volume on your taskbar, open volume contols and make sure that none of the five boxes have been muted, then try connecting using the BBC player.

Use google to search for the German site, and click on the translate link.

If you can't get Radio Five Live at times the reason is simple - the BBC is not allowed to broadcast live soccer matches on the Internet for reasons which it states on its website.
