View Full Version : Almost there - listening to the BBC

November 9th, 2005, 12:15 AM

First post so please treat me gently :)

I've installed Ubuntu after a brief fling with Mepis. I've spent a bit of time tweaking and the box rocks.

I like listening to BBC Radio. If I use the "Listen Now" feature it gives me the option to listen with stand alone Real Player - this works really well. However, when that feature is unavailable I can only hit the play bottom. Then nothing happens :( . Screenshot attached (I hope).

Any king soul get this to work?

Firefox 1.07

I haven't tried this yet but I did find this on the BBC audio help page, which may be useful, good luck;)

Just tried it in Opera and it seems to work fine:


Edit: Also works fine in Firefox...and looks the same as what you get. I think I just ran the Automatix script to get this sort of thing working, but I could be wrong.
