    Try installing Flip4Mac cause I seem to be able to stream it just fine.

    Here's the link:

    works fine for me. i think you need Flip4Mac as it isnt using QuickTime for me even though it says .mp3.

    and mate that is terrible quality music. sounds like someone is recording their speakers and probably converted from mp3 to wma which is uber *****. get music another way by purchasing from iTunes, Amazon etc. P2P or quality streaming services such as Pandora.

    Or you can try grooveshark. It has a good library of music and you can stream it online.

    do you have Snow Leopard?

    When I click on alienapp's link, it says Snow Leopard is required. But it I'm able to see the player with Safari. :confused: Seems to be a Firefox issue, I updated to 3.5.7 but it doesn't resolve anything.

    Oops I've messed up a little bit there. It should be compatible with OS 10.4 and up.

    Grooveshark is pretty useful. Of course the real way to listen to music would be to use iTunes and fill it with the music you want. You can obviously load cds and download from the iTunes Store, but you can easily get any music you'd like free with a torrent client.
