Hi!
Do I have to download Realplayer to listen to some radio stations, or is there an alternative? (when i try to listen to some of them Quicktime opens as default media player, but says I'm 'unconnected')
I gather realplayer is pretty unpopular with some posters.
If i do have to download it, do I have to pay for it?

<I did a search on these boards, but didn't find a difinitive answer>

Thanks!

If the station is only available in Real format, then you'll need RealPlayer. It's free, go to www.real.com and click the Free RealPlayer button in the top-right corner. I don't know why RealPlayer is so unpopular, I've never had a problem with it.

Get real player from the BBC it's free doesn't seem to install as much rubbish on my windows pc's as the one from real.[/url]
There is no difference between the Mac player available from the BBC links and the download available directly from Real. There is no installer for the Mac RealPlayer; you just drag it to your Applications folder and launch it from there.

A new radio station that's started in Minneapolis/St Paul is broadcasting online in aacPlus. For the Mac, I had to download the VLC Player from here but it's a neat little app and works very well.
