View Full Version : Linux RealAudio streaming

2004-01-21, 10:53
Hi there

First of all. Thanks for the solution to listen to
real audio streams.

One thing though. I first tried to install the
wrong vsound! There are two quite similar projects
with the same name. I only found out because
compiling and installing the wrong project would
produce an executable spelled VSound and your script
uses vsound.

After compiling and installing the correct vsound
I was able to play the BBC link you provided.

Thanks again
