Ok for that you need mplayer plugin for firefox to play real audio on the internet..

you need to have extra repositories enabled..
To enable all the software repositories do ref this link..

http://www.arsgeek.com/?p=2794

after getting all the required repositories enabled

Type the following command in a terminal (applications -> accessories -> terminal)

sudo aptitude install mplayer

(to install mplayer and mplayer plugin)

Or if you are on kubuntu

To enable universe software repositories do..

Start Adept by choosing K Menu->System->Adept (Package Manager) from the Desktop menu system.

Select View->Manage Repositories in the Adept package manager window.

To enable the Universe repository, find the repository line with the Universe Component, and right click the line and select Enable.

after getting all the required repositories enabled

Type the following command in a Konsole (KMenu -> System -> Konsole)

sudo apt-get update

Then type,

sudo apt-get install mplayer

Hope that helps

i have been tried to install realplayer 10 gold.bin on my system without success. i tried also terminal and i just get this message :Package realplayer is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package realplayer has no installation candidate
i dont know what to do can anybody help me please?

Bhavani Shankar (bhavi) said : #10

Hello

try this command in a terminal (If you did not remove your previous installation)

sudo apt-get remove realplayer
Or this link also might help you out:

and to install real player in ubuntu there are different methods:

RealPlayer is proprietary software and is not supported by the Ubuntu community.

Also, you might want to have a look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats

also can you post the link you are trying to stream so that I can also have a look

Can you please provide me the link where you are streaming music so that I can also have a try.. ;-)

Bhavani Shankar (bhavi) said : #16

avni,

Ok Mplayer is known to cause konqueror crash in kubuntu..

Possible fix is:

Install firefox and then install mplayer plugin for firefox

sudo apt-get install firefox

and then

sudo apt-get install mplayer.

Bhavani Shankar.
