    Is there a way to listen to XM Radio online on a Mac, without having to install Windows Media Player 9?

    Yes. This will install additional codecs on your Mac which will allow you to listen to the audio via Quicktime:

    And best of all, it's free now. No need for Windows Media Player.

    No luck. XM Radio player pops up. I choose the channel. When I click on the play button "-19162" shows to the right of the button. No audio. Flip4mac seems to be working as expected, but no luck with XM.

    There is an XM radio widget on Apples site if you are using Tiger. Works great for me.

    Tried that as well. I get the message "Flip4Mac WMV cannot play this movie".
    I really don't want to install Windows Media Player 9, but I may have to.
