Listening to and recording bbc radio

  jz 21:43 18 Feb 2005

I used to be able to listen to and record 'listen again' radio programmes by the BBC without using Realplayer. I learnt how to do this from this forum a year or so ago by using Jet Audio. I haven't listened to anything for months, and, having re-installed windows and Jet Audio on my PC, it no longer works. If I click on a programme, it tells me that I don't have the Realplayer installed. What's the trick I need to do to get it to use Jet Audio instead?

Try realAlternative. It works for me: click here

go here click here
and install megacodec pack 1.16. It includes a Real player alternative and all the codecs you will need.

just noticed DS's link is for the same player but without the codecs. Still recommend it as it has always worked for me also.

Thanks for your replies (and sorry for the very late reply). I installed Real Alternative and it's all working fine with Jet Audio.

Any suggestions on what audio compression to use when recording? Around 30-45kbits per sec stereo speech and music seems about right, but which codec is best? Has anyone compared them for audio quality at a given bit rate?
