Can`t Connect to Radio 5 Live

Although I have XP Pro and WMP 9 I know I can`t connect through the latter to Radio 5 Live. I have downloaded Realplayer and restricted it to only the things that WMP 9 can`t handle but even that won`t get Radio 5 Live.

Typical error messages:
rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk/radio5/promo.rm or rtsp://rmlivev8.bbc.net.uk/farm/*/ev7/live24/radio5/live/r3_tl_g2.ra

I can connect to radio 2 using real player but none of the tests seem to work. Where do I start?

have you tried going to the 5live website and clicking on "listen live"?

Get rid of RealPlayer, it is too intrusive. Go to click here and download the free version. Now go to this previous thread and read. click here

That did the trick after about half an hour of fiddling about with updates. What a pain in the proverbial.

Thanks I might just try that one if this happens again.

Thanks both.
