It's not looking good. I've installed the RealMediaSplitter.ax and Real Alternative v1.2.3 but WMP still says no can do for RAM files.

:cry:

There's next to no documentation around this that I can find, but I'll persevere!! :roll:

    Ok uninstall all your Realplayer players, including the .ax separately

    Install Real alternative(latest version)

    Open WMP9.

    Run a .RAM file...

    It will tell you WMP9 cannot run this file.....do u want to try anyway?

    SAY YES!

    It will play...from that moment on .RAM files will work in MP too.

    The problem is... it doesn't play in WMP9 having done this. It says that it cannot play the .ram file back because the file type is not supported or the medium might be corrupt.

    Media Player Classic will play it no problems, though... For what it's worth I am attempting to play the BBC Radio live stream which can be found (according to the .ram file) here:

    rtsp://rmlivev8.bbc.net.uk/farm/*/ev7/live24/radio1/live/r1_dsat_g2.ra

    When I feed WMP9 this address it claims that it can't find the server.

    FWIW I am using WMP9 on WinXP with RealAlt 1.23. I have checked that the realmedia directshow entries exist with the Filter Manager.

    I'll second that, I am also using WMP9 on WinXP with RealAlt 1.23 and have checked the realmedia directshow entries exist with filter manager and I still can't get these streams to play.

    (fyi...I'm also trying to get the BBC streams, there are a couple in asx format though... http://www.radiofeeds.co.uk/

    Is there any scope to develop the plugin to handle Real Audio streams natively?

    Does installing WMP10 make any difference?

    I too would love to listen to BBC radio streams in MP, I hate the Real Player software. :twisted:

    Just found this on the BBC website. This has certainly change very recently AFAIK.

    Do you have plans to use any other streaming formats?
    New digital stations 1Xtra, 6 Music, Asian Network, BBC 7 and Five Live Sports Extra are now available to listen to in Windows Media format. We have no immediate plans to use any other streaming formats

    Shame it doesn't include Radio 1 and their World Service. This is what I am particularly interested in.

    if you can get ram to play in wmp, then yes we can to.

    i've been playing around with this today and i can't for the life of me get Windows Media Player to play .ram files (I am also attempting to stream a BBC station... http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/realaudio/media/r1live.rpm)

    I have completely unsintalled Real player, Real Alternative and the Gabest splitter and reinstalled Real Alternative (as in the above suggestion) but WMP still says "cannot play the file, one or more codecs could not be found"

    DirectShow Filter Manager (0.3) shows that i have 4 Real Media filters...
    RealMedia Splitter has merit 0x600000
    RealAudio Decoder 0x400000
    RealMedia Source 0x600000
    RealVideo Decoder 0x400000
    (all these filters are by Gabest)

    So basically I have two questions...

    1 - Has anyone had any joy playing Real Media .ram files in WMP9?
    2 -If so, how did you do it?

    Thanks for the input. At least until I can get this sorted I can still listen to BBC Radio 6 in Media Portal :D

    This may or may not be a pause, after all, this is a playlist, it can constantly change, I don’t very well understand the mechanism of working with playlists in online broadcasts. Well, here you need to look at what is happening in the Media Portal player. And find someone who understands how it works.

    I've setup my HDHomeRun in MP1 as (4) IPTV cards rather than Atsc. I can see the (4) Atsc cards, but just have them disabled. I did it this way so I didn't have to edit the channel names every time tested a new TV-server install. Anyway, it works. I don't know if this would get you past the BDA driver issue. I'll provide more...

    Thanks for that. I found "Chnlineup" in the Sky grab and "FreesatEPG" in the Freesat grab and enabled them both in EPG Collector, and also set them as the EPG grabber for radio in MP2. But here's the odd thing: The next time I opened the XMLTV EPG mapper (where you map actual channels to channels available in the EPG), the radio...

    Well, currently the plugin shows the sun/moon times in user's local time. As you said, It would require to add time zone parameter to the profile. I'll try to add this option in the next version. PS: please use official thread
