Could Linux be more in use than IDC or Gartner think 6809
Robert Newson Yes, but I hardly think that this is a common thing. Maybe amongst us geeks, but few others. I actually didn't create the poll to make a point, I was more...
I like real player, good all round music-video player. But my favourite bit is listening to radio stations around the world. I was almost on the virge of paying the £8 a month to use the other music-video things on their web site, seems a bit steep but might be worth it if there's enough there to keep me entertained.
Unfortunately something has started to go wrong with my beloved radio stations. over the last 2-3 weeks I have gradually reduced my favourite list because the mmm-ram-rm files are aparently in a bad format. I also tried the BBC radio links, those have the same problem except that some of them start to play then stop because of bad format.
Retrying those I have lost over a few nights I get the same 'bad format' error.
I have been over the RealPlayer site looking to see if they are updates, but I have the latest player for Linux and I can't see anything that suggests the file formats have changed.
I was wondering if some file formats will only play in their 'Premium version', I can't see anything that suggests that the two players are different except in that the Premium version includes the cd burning and extra sound tools.

mlw ... What about those of us who will be using more than 1 OS next year: I'm intending to rejig my home...
Does any one else use RealPlayer and have problems of this kind at the moment?
I did write tech help note to rp, also to the bbc site. Actually I was quite pleased to see that the BBC gave as good a description of how users should set up RP-radio on Linux as they did for MS users.
