Real Player media streaming on WM5

Hello everyone!

I have been looking for this information all over. Can someone tell me how do I listen to Real Player audio streams on my SPV M3100? I have TCPMP installed but I can only stream MP3 streams. I want to listen to BBC Radio 4 for example using this feed: rtsp://rmlive.bbc.co.uk/bbc-rbs/rmlive/ev7/live24/radio4/live/r4_dsat_g2.ra

There has to be a program for WM5 that streams RAM or RA...

Thank you:)

TCPMP can't do RTSP streaming. Not sure about CorePlayer, but I refuse to buy it until they get the features which they promised available working (and they sort out the annoying ATi ImageOn bug), but that's another story entirely.

RealPlayer support kinda fell off after Nokia secured their exclusive deal to distribute RealPlayer Mobile on their own devices... I do have installers for the last versions of RealPlayer Mobile, but the RTSP support has fallen off and is now mostly incompatible with the type of RTSP streaming used by Helix servers on the Internet thesedays, so you're mostly out of luck for RTSP streaming.

However... You can listen to Radio 4 live via their Windows Media Player feeds: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/wm_asx/aod/radio4.asx (or the Longwave version, at http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/wm_asx/aod/radio4_lw.asx ). :)

Thank you, your post proved most useful with the exception of one thing: the WM feeds for Radio 4 do not work at all, they seem to stall and no connection is made.

Would you happen to have some alternative feeds?

It seems I cannot go without Radio 4 on my M3100 :)

Best regards

It seems that the feeds sometimes work, sometimes don't. I could not figure a pattern for this problem. They either work or not, not clear of why this happens. Other feeds from Canada that I've tested work well.

The trick to listen in to RealOne streams is to put your PDA in a DMZ.

This article should explain:

As it says, it depends if you're using wi-fi or a GPRS/3G connection.

This article explains how you can install RealOne Player on your WM5.

Just a quick update: currently using my Vario 2 on my house's wifi connection. Although the link to listen via Windows Media Player wasn't listed on the Audio On Demand pages, I clicked on the first link I posted in my previous reply and, after a brief moment while it connected, it began to stream fine. It's still going fine in WMP.

Media Player always seems to take AGES to resolve streaming servers - half the time when I'm using the 3G I have to wait for the best part of 45 seconds for stuff on the BBC site! Once the DNS is resolved though, it seems to work alright after that.

My suggestion is that you just keep on trying... Unfortunately patience seems to remain a virtue, even in today's mobile day and age!
