I am trying to listen to a radio program from BBC radio Shropshire on my computer. I downloaded and installed Real Player 11 on my computer and am able to play my mp3 files with no problem. When I try to go to the URL:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/playlive/bbc_radio_shropshire/
I get an error message stating that the player does not have the capabilities to play this content.
The following components are required:
text/html;charset=utf-8

My computer is an Acer laptop running the 64 bit version of Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex Linux.

Can someone please tell me how to add the missing component?

Thanks

I updated to Jaunty Jackelope about a month ago, and i just tried this again and got exactly the same result as before. I have searched for answers on Google and have found nothing. Can anyone help, please!

:(

Have you tried movie player (Jaunty)? In the sidebar properties select BBC. Real player not required. Maybe not radio stations, but a lot of content. As far as real player, I'm guessing you need a plugin for it in firefox.
