I attempted to play a radio program from a web site using Netscape 7.1 and got a box saying the file was x-pn-realaudio. Could be, couldn't prove it by me. Anyway it wanted to know what should be used to open it, the default player: RealOne Player Presentation, browse for a players or save to file. I chose default player. RealOne opens, gives a box saying it needs to download additional software to handle the request, I say yes and allow it access to the web, after some searching it tells me there is no additions software available.
The RealOne Player Presentation throws me. In Netscape preferences the x-pn-realaudio file is associated with RealOne Presentation extension .ram. What is that? What I have installed is RealOne. That's it, just RealOne, version 2.0, build 184.108.40.2068.
Before anyone says to download the newest Real Player, which is version 10 and has had bad reviews, I opened that web site in Slim Browser and IE 6 and the radio program plays fine in both browsers using RealOne.
Is the problem with Netscape 7.1 or the coding on the web page? I prefer to use Netscape if there is a way to correct this problem.
