    then here is a link to a good and free alternative which i have used for while

    http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

    coz the other 2 programs break my head:crazy_fre:crazy_fre:crazy_fre

    NB if you decide to use this you will have to paste the new radio link into it as follows:

    1- open VLC studio
    2- select the File drop down menu
    3- select open network stream (Ctrl +N)
    4- open the file tab in the Open window
    5- paste the link in the box
    6- hit return
    and off you go:horay::horay::horay::horay:

    I don’t like WMP but winamp does me nicely, especially with my decepticons skin. I’ll check that out though.

    i like it because it has a small footprint and works first time every time when i connect to the radio stream

    [the other two never did for me or used to crash midstream:rant::rant::rant:]

    I’m not a fan of WMP even if it has it’s uses. Winamp lost the plot for a bit with version 3 but it’s much better now again and does the job for me nicely…

    I dont like Winamp and particularily hate the bloated WMP.

    VLC all the way :

    http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

    VLC (initially VideoLAN Client) is a highly portable multimedia player for various audio and video formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, …) as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols. It can also be used as a server to stream in unicast or multicast in IPv4 or IPv6 on a high-bandwidth network.

    Ive used VLC for ages, it does play a bit slowly if your using files with a very very high compression ratio though, and you can download codecs that dont come as standard if you wanna play any really obscure files. i think they could do a little more with the interface tho!

    I dont like Winamp,or WMP for that matter….VLC is excellent,i also like Media Player Classic,which is nothing to do with WMP at all
    I tend to use Quintessential Player for music

    IT lessons required for me I think. I use Real Player and WMP. Had to download the divX converter to play a lot of my files though.

    Some people (like myself) are quite old fashioned when the subject of music crops up. I am also like other people I know, quite phobic when the subject of IT is banded about. So personally I find one of the best ways of finding answers to (what might sound like VERY simple questions to many people on here) this topic, is to do exactly what ‘twatey’ did, which was to post the question on here. And you’ve also got to remember that IT is taught as a mainstream topic at school now, which wasn’t the case several years back. So please remember what may seem a ‘silly question’ to some peeps, is a serious question to others. Patronization comes to mind in this situation.
    Agent Subby just wanted to get that off his back(metaphorically speaking).:wink:
