Hi Holligan. I don't know much about it but it might be the RealPlayer. There's a help page on the BBC site at click here

If you give me the exact steps of what you're trying to do, the software and the sites you use then sometime in the next week I'll download whatever software you're using and visit the BBC webiste (copy and paste the address into the thread so I know where to go) and try to reproduce the fault.

One problem with that is though is that I'm using XP Home and you're using 98.

Don't forget, if I can't follow what you're doing then I won't be able to try to reproduce the problem.

I'll have a look at it tomorrow. You're right though it will probably work for me but that's computers for you.

You were right it did work fine for me. I downloaded the Alternative Real Player from click here and when I went to 5 Live it played straight away and I wasn't asked about the sure stream file. The only thing I can suggest is to download the file from the link above and try installing it again.
