real player and bbc radio

  lossie 09:51 30 Dec 2006

something is blocking me from connecting to BBC radio through real player. It cannot connect. I can use WMplayer to watch news clips but to real. I have reinstalled and updated but still no joy. Any ideas?

Are you talking about listening to BBC, or just watching Videos?
I listen to BBC radio on Real Player every day no problem.

listening live or using listen again. I cannot connect. The video news section will not connect either using realplayer. This though gives the option to use Wmplayer which does connect.

Now that works! Any idea what the prob is with realplayer? I was wondering if it was a firewall problem but obviously not. I'll not click resolved just yet

No idea what the problem with RP was; I discovered realAlternative some years ago and haven't put RP on a pc since.

Thanks for that little gem. I was never happy with the overbloated Real Player.Have installed realAlternative and it work a treat. Thanks again.
