Unable to stream media

Postby Old Marcus on Sun Nov 23, 2008 10:37 am

Hi, my dad's box is running on Mint Xfce, and he's unable to stream any media. At first, mplayer would try, but wouldn't be able to, so we uninstalled that and put realplayer on. Still no cigar. this is the error message we get when trying to stream live radio:

Any solutions, are there tweaks I could have done to mplayer to make it work, or something else?

'apt install' can be used on Linux Mint as a shortcut for 'sudo apt-get install'. 'apt x' can be used for various other apt commands as well.

I did not find streaming media on the bbc site :shock:
Post a link and I try again, because I think I have to have some idea of the source

Works here on Elyssa main and XFCE (well I don't hear anything in XFCE as it is in Virtualbox and I don't have the patience to fiddle with settings)

I could try installing mplayer again, but it never worked for us.
