Hi Colin,

This is great. I've not had time to get my head around the problem of
realaudio via linux to slimserver. I've had a quick play with this and
it's certainly looking promising. I've managed to use vsound and
trplayer and lame to get an mp3 from the live radio 1 stream.

I've hit a stumbling block trying to get it working via slimserver and
the rm2mp3proxy.pl script. If I run the script as a background process
then telnet to port 2020 and do:

GET
/rtsp://rmlivev8.bbc.net.uk/farm/*/ev7/live24/radio1/live/r1_dsat_g2.ra

I get the following to the stderr:

Requested file not found. The link you followed may be outdated or
inaccurate.
Assuming raw pcm input file
LAME version 3.90 (http://www.mp3dev.org/)
Using polyphase lowpass filter, transition band: 15115 Hz - 15648 Hz
Encoding <stdin> to <stdout>
Encoding as 44.1 kHz 128 kbps j-stereo MPEG-1 Layer III (11x) qval=5

This is using the same rtsp:... Url as I used to get it via the command
line. Not really had a chance to step through it properly but I reckon
this could work really well.

Thanks!

Andy
