    Hi,

    A multipart question:

    1. I want to listen to BBC radio (www.bbc.co.uk) on the internet.
    2. Can't do it in Safari: no plugin. Safari suggests I try RealPlayer, but refuses to load www.real.com ("Too many redirects")
    3. Internet Explorer won't load Real.com either (it has in the past, just not today.)
    4. Can I use iTunes to listen to bbc radio content? If so, how? I've tried entering the URLs, but there's nothing there... I suspect that's because it won't work on iTunes, but if anyone knows differently, I'd love to know.
    5. How can I get RealPlayer if neither of my browsers will open the page?
    6. Arrrrgggggghhhhh

    I went to real.com in Safari a couple days ago, and it worked fine. Try it again this evening and tomorrow, and see if it works.

    If it still won't load, then...

    You can get RealOnePlayer 9 (the OS X version of RealPlayer) at Apple's OS X Downloads site. Search for RealOne, and it finds it. It downloaded fine for me. (Well, I canceled it after about 5 seconds, but until then, it was going fine :) .)

    Just to add to that...I went to the bbc website you gave, and I was able to listen to radio in Safari using my RealPlayer (RealOnePlayer, I guess) plugin.

    Well if it's an actual stream you can go to iTunes and click Advanced>Open Stream and enter the URL, but this BBC "stream" is just a Real file... not a real stream...

    if you get what I mean...
