Hi,

So excited about SB - what a great thing! Before I bought it, I checked here to see if I could stream the BBC through it on my mac. Sadly, I just saw the plugin, which said it was mac compatible, and then assumed I could easily install the BBC plugin and have my radio.

Now that I've cliked through and found more details on this, I'm completely confused! I'm not that savvy and the installation description provided for AlienBBC seems too complicated. Is there any other alternative for getting BBC through squeezebox? Do any of the fee-based online internet radio providers offer the BBC? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated - thanks!

If you haven't seen that thread yet, it may help you. AlienBBC is really the
best option for getting BBC radio and their archives to play through
squeezebox.

Thanks! I followed the instruction of that thread but at the end, when I tested it in the terminal, I got this:

-bash: mplayer: command not found


Any idea of what I did wrong? The BBC stations are all visible on the SB, but they don't connect...

Thanks again...
