    Realplayer in Hardy

    Just upgraded from 7.10 to 8.04

    Realplayer works fine for BBC radio progs in 7.10 but the upgrade killed the radio. I downloaded the 8.04RC package a couple of weeks ago and added Realplayer to it. Again it didn't work for BBC radio.

    Is this a bug as all was OK until I upgraded. I've tried turning off the firewall and using Epiphany browser in case it was the upgrade to Firefox 3 but same results.

    Any suggestions appreciated as I'm a BBC radio addict.

    I bet it's another Pulseaudio problem.

    Try installing the package libsdl1.2debian-all

    It will uninstall the libsdl1.2debian-alsa, but it comes with every plugin

    If it don't work, try this...

    Code:
    export SDL_AUDIODRIVER=pulse
    OR

    Code:
    export SDL_AUDIODRIVER=alsa
    It solved some audio problems for me...

    Well thanks for the ideas but sadly none of them worked for me. I think 8.04 will have to go on the back-burner until such time as this bug is sorted as living in Turkey, I use BBC streaming radio to keep me up to date on UK news etc every morning 8.04 without Realplayer is no contest for 7.10 with Realplayer I'm afraid!

    or better...
    are the sound devices configured correctly in System > Preferences > Sound?

    Re: Realplayer in Hardy

    I installed 8.04 yesterday and when I play a BBC radio program it starts up Totem which does not work properly - never playes the whole program and does not allow me to move through a clip - this is what Totem has always done for .ram files which is why I used RealPlayer

    For some reason though I just can't get FireFox to use realplayer - the settings in Applications tell it to, but it just won't.

    Realplayer is working for me in 8.04, I am using FF2 and I removed the totem FF plugin, I have to use the 'stand alone realplayer' option but thats no hardship.
    I used to use Mplayer but that didnt allow me to fast forward/rewind the audio stream when using 'listen again'.
