I've never accessed them before - I'll give that a try and see if I can. I do seem to remember someone commenting that BBC had an opportunity to go to a better format but had unfortunately stuck with RealPlayer..... >It works fine >on my current Gentoo system at work, and I basically stream Radio1 the whole >workday.

I wonder if it was you I exchanged messages with a couple of years back - when I said I wanted to be able to listen to the BBC and you said that you were doing so and using SuSE... and you were hoping there would be more interest in SuSE so there would be more support for it? Or was that someone else? Mainly SuSE is working out well for me, so thank you either way. Gentoo... I'll have to drop that in a search engine and see what comes up. /// Just did (http://www.gentoo.org/). Hmmm.... the blurby text at the sight looks great.

I haven't been able to get it do anything when I open the BBC Radio player, but by clicking on listen icons elsewhere on the site, I get a dialog box asking if I want to open it with RealPlayer - I click yes (default) and it works. Thanks for the advice, and if you have any comments about Gentoo, please toss them into the wires. Lyle
