    I recently downloaded realplayer with the sole purpose of streaming bbc radio so it can be paused and resumed.

    However, upon clicking the link for it in realplayer it comes up with a pop up that says,

    "Windows Media Player cannot play any items in the playlist. To find information about the problem, click the icon next to each file in the list pane."

    Why is it even communicating with windows media player?
    The lesser known foreign radio station work, it mainly seems to be the BBC stations that refuse to stream.
    Any help would be much appreciated. I used realplayer to get away from wmp as i dislike it [​IMG]

    the bbc station play in .asx format but other .asx stations play well. have tried making it the default player for everything too but still no use. wmp has always caused me problems. it has never played media in a web browser, always used to load content and then just not play
