Listening to radio via Real Player or Windows Media Player

Q: Listening to radio via Real Player or Windows Media Player

I can listen to CD's no problem but when I try to listen to a radio station directly I hit the listen button on the station web page the computer downloads the page so that it appears on the download list. How does this happen and more to the point how can I stop it and get on listening to some radio music?

Preferred Solution: Listening to radio via Real Player or Windows Media Player

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I use Windows XP Pro SPIII and Real Player Gold 11.

After listening to an Internet Radio, I have a specific problem when shutting down Real Player.
This occurs ONLY with Internet Radio, probably a plugin problem.

When I shut down Real Player, it starts to shut down, then reopen, then re-shut down, then reopen , and so on two or three times, sometimes up to eight times.

The longer I listen to an Internet Radio, the longer lasts this unpleasant shut down!

Any idea?

I want to listen to internet radio in Media Player Classic (6.4.9). Can someone tell me STEP-BY-STEP exactly how to do this? It seems more complicated than it should be -- for example, I think you can only listen to ESPN Radio through RealPlayer[?]

Also, what do you think the BEST free media player is [that is radio-capable]? I'm not looking for media players that limit me to pre-selected channels.

I do not use Windows Media Player, Quicktime or RealPlayer -- they all install spyware.


A:Listening to Radio in Media Player Classic

You may find more help from the developer's home page with what you are requesting. I'm not certain that their product offers such an option.

A quick search at snapfiles offers Internet Radio Tuner for free. If you can get Classic to be setup as your default, it may work.

It needs a LAME MP3 encoder in order for it to work plus DirectX . These requirments probably come bundled with the software.

Hi: I was trying to record from a radio station a recording of someone I know who has written a music piece and by mistake I saw urge and downloaded the program. When I realized I did not want this program, I deleted it. There was a message not to do it--that it would block other users from logging onto the computer (Which is a violation of the anti-trust laws) however, I did not listen and deleted the entire program from the program files. Now I cannot get any music from the radio site and it has blocked real player. MSN should be sued again.HELP!!!

Our music files are in Real Jukebox. How can we put them into Windows Media Player? We tried drop and drag, but this doesn't change the type.

A:Real Player Files transferred to Windows Media Player

Depending on the file the might not work
unless you talking about converting them

If you can play them on media player

Highlight the File
hold down the shift key
And Right Click

Now use open with
The goto media player
and check the always use box
If you always want to use it to open

Had a lot of trouble after installing Microsoft's DirectX 7a. Could not use DirectDraw, Direct 3D, or any media players: all would result in a page fault (Kernel32.dll @0137:bff7297c).

After over 30 days of troubleshooting, we isolated the conflict to the Vision 95 which has an option of being or not being installed along with the STB Velocity (Virge VX) 3D drivers.

However, BEWARE OF DIRECTX 7a and especially WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER!~ I shout because ya need to [email protected]

Windows MEdia Player seems to me to be programmed to seek out any and all other media players (ie. Real Player 7), and mess them up big time. I have a 465 Kb .mpg file. It used to play on Real player BEFORE i put Direct X 7a in. Now, it plays 2.4 seconds of the mpg and quits. Also, a .mov, although it plays in entirety, the sound is ABSOLUTELY RAUCIOUS at all volume settings.

INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH, both the mpg and mov play REALLY WELL in Windows Media Player.

I did a Add/Remove on Windows Media Player 6.4, and Real Player started having colored lines appearing in the video.

I did a manual uninstall of WMP (delete msdxm.ocx).

No improvement in Real Player.

Deleted Real Player, defrag/scandisk'ed, rebooted, clean install of RP 7, check out the mpg or mov: NO IMPROVEMENT.

DId a find on anything "mediaplayer2" or Windows Media Player, and deleted.

I used to play all my mp3 files via Windows Media Player. Those were the good ol' Napster days. Then came Bearshare, for which I downloaded Real Player Basic, and since then it seems, I can't get any audio out of Windows Media Player anymore. It seems to be doing its job and all that happy stuff, you know: opening media libraries, playing mp3 files... only: no audio. Real Player's doing fine, but even my old Napster mp3 files from Napster - heck, even the Bearshare files that work with Real Player! - get zero audio when played in Windows Media. So I figured it's some sort of conflict, you know? That stuff happens. So being the resourceful guy that I am, I tried uninstalling Real Player, (Settings, Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs...) but you know what? It's not working. I get a pop up window ("Are you absolutely SURE you wanna lose all yer Real Player stuff? Yes/No" I do "Yes", I get another pop up job ("Uninstalling Real Player") but that's it. You know the blue horizontal bar you get that informs you of how far into the process you are? It doesn't even show up. At this point, nothing goes further. Ctrl/Alt/Delete tells me "Uninstalling Real Player Not Responding". It does that every time.

I'm running Windows XP.

When I'm looking at cd's on Amazon and I try to play a sample of a cd it doesn't work no matter if I choose Media Player or Real Player.
Both tell me they can't play the file.

But they work if I put in a cd in the drive.

Anyone know why they wouldn't play from internet ?

Recently I re-installed XP(probably didn't have to, but that's another story). I finally got my internet connection back and have re-installed my audio files. When I tried to start Musicmatch, I would be prompted that currently there was no music folder. After I "clicked' yes to that, the MM music would come up for a second or 2, as would the MM logo, then everything just quit and nothing. I finally uninstalled MM and re-downloaded it. Now when I try to start it, I get nothing.

I can run my music on Win Media Player, but can't run an entire song without a prompt that Media Player has experienced a problem(of course, when you click that promt, MMP disappears). It also won't play MS format music files.

I also can't get Real One to come up - after about 5 seconds of booting up, I get a prompt that it's encountered an error.

I also can't get Quick Time to come up...I get an "error 2093 message - make sure it's installed in your system."

Again, everything ran fine before reinstalling WXP(from the D drive?). Is there some common driver or something for all these media programs that I might be missing?

I have installed windows media player 11 and it wont play internet radio.
I upgraded from WMP 9.0 and it has a radio button on its side panel, so does WMP 10 i suppose. no such thing in WMP 11. you 1st have to wait for the online store to load and then browse to the online Radio through links. That is a step backward for me. but thats only half the problem. the thing is that it just wont play online radio stations. it connects to the internet alright, searches fine, saves favorite radio stations, no issues there. if only it would stream them too.
i rolled back to to WMP 9.0 and voila, the Radio is on again. no problem with the system then ?
any suggestions.

I think one of the recent winxp upgrades upgraded my media player to 10. This morning I tried to open it and it had me set some settings - file associations, intenet activity, etc. I opened the radio tuner and searched for the genre - there's a new age station I found last night that even streams on dialup nicely called "digitally imported di.fm" and is free - but nothing will play, although it seems to be trying to pop up something, which goes away.

I have winxp sp2 which installed a firewall I think. I also may have restricted internet access somehow in the player settings, but I can't find where to get back into them.

UPDATE: I went to the website www.di.fm and it had a play button - the windows xp firewall alerted me that abacast was blocked and I unblocked it. Now it is trying.... thinking about playing my content. I really really am coming to hate windows media player - every update makes it worse. They need to name them degrades instead of upgrades.

Just using it to play a cd is the pits - let alone trying to access internet radio. They're totally trying to shunt us into the stores. I am NOT amused. I noticed this station plays on winamp - I'm off to down it. WMP can take a hike.

I have Windows Vista Business and Media Player version 11.6000.6324

When I try to listen to Internet Radio (I tried several US stations) the player issues two types of error messages, sometimes the first, sometimes the second:


"Windows Media Player cannot support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file".


"Windows Media Player cannot play the file because the specified protocol is not supported. If you typed a URL in the open URL dialog box, try using a different transport protocol (foe exemple http: or rstp:)"

The player works fine for audio and video coming from audio and video files, stored on the hard drive CDs and DVDs.

I tried tp listen to Internet Radio without firewall - the problem persists.

In the Media Player "options", in the Network tab, I confirmed that all possible protocols are checked.

I do manage to listen to the stations I tried on another computer which runs Windows XP.

A:real player or window media player?

Real Player (aka Real Obnoxious) is not the same as Windows Media Player. There are certain files that will only play on Real Player and certain Files that will only play on Windows Media Player.

If you are going to install Real Player I suggest that you print out the instructions here;

refer to the instructions when installing Real Player. Although these instructions are not for the current Real Player version there is still enough in the instructions as what to disable, to keep Real Player usable, but stop it from bugging you all the time.

If real player and windows media player do the same thing which one is better?

A:Real Player Or Window Media Player

RealPlayer can play most of the formats that WMP can, plus some of it's own (ie formats created by the RealPlayer developer) which WMP can't play.

However, although RealPlayer plays more formats and you need it for some websites which stream audi/video content only in RealPlayer's native formats, It can be somewhat of annoyance when it's installed -- always popping up nag-screens to buy the 'pro' version etc. Something which WMP never does.

In essence, if you want all video and audio formats covered, you need them both. My policy is to manage with Windows Media Player. I just avoid using websites with video/audio content that need RealPlayer.

Hello, I've been having a problem with Windows Media Player 11 on Vista for the past few months now. For some reason it has stopped playing internet radio broadcasts. I have tried the solution posted on the windows help guide but none of them works. As I have a computer that came with Vista already installed I am unable to uninstall the player and then reinstall it.
The most common response I get is to register the Wmnetmgr.dll and/or change the file name or delete the file so that windows media player is forced to create a new file. However, my computer will not let me do this, even though I am the Administrator on the computer.
Any new ideas or suggestions would be welcome.

This problem has popped up recently. Windows Media Player sudenly does not play the same internet radio stations I have listened to before that use Media Player and it always did before quickly and automatically. Now the media opens, shows connecting and then Ready. Nothing happens and when I click Play it just repeats the process and still nothing happens. Other stations that use flash player or something else play just fine fine. All sounds and videos work well.

Recently Internet Explorer 8 did a large update and so did Itunes. Windows Media player worked fine when I tested it to play songs from the library. I checked some settings in WMP and they seemed ok to me.

I could not find a solution to this when I searched the forums regarding this.

Using Windows media player I visit a internet radio web site and while a piece of music is playing clicked the "add a song to your personal playlist" . A message appears stating that this song has been added.
From this point on I am totally confused.
I am unable to find the song I have added or indeed what playlist it has been aded to.

I am new to Windows Media Player .

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Unless you've integrated Windows Media Player with an unlimited streaming service like Spotify or own all the songs you're adding to a play list, I don't think the feature does anything for you.
