View Full Version : Alien BBC - a question!

* I have just installed Alien BBC as per the instructions on the "plug
ins" page of the Slim devices website.

* In particular I installed the "Mplayer-mingw32-1.opre7.zip" file when
installing Mplayer.

* Alien BBC shows up on the squeezebox menu under internet radio,
together with all the sub categories.



However



* Of the list of stations, only the Virgin radio stations work. When I
try and load all other stations I get the following error:

o "RTSP convert error - check file types"



Could someone please point me in the right direction here? Please bear in
mind that I am not a programmer, just a novice user of the software!



Many thanks

hi I had the same error yesterday and it was caused by extracting the mplayer and codec but not having them at the folder level wanted by slim server.
Good instructions at
http://www.mrtickle.org/alienbbc_install.html

my prob was mplayer in
C:\Program Files\SlimServer\server\Bin\MSWin32-x86-multi-thread\mplayer
not
C:\Program Files\SlimServer\server\Bin\MSWin32-x86-multi-thread


same applies to codecs which should end up in
C:\Program Files\SlimServer\server\Bin\MSWin32-x86-multi-thread\codecs

you only need two of the codec dlls as described on site


good luck dave w
