How do I get Internet audio on my computer?
If you have a multimedia computer (one that comes with speakers and sound), you can play the audio with either RealPlayer or Windows Media Player.
RealPlayer: If you don't have a current RealPlayer on your computer, click on the "RealPlayer Free" button below. Doing so will take you to the Web site of www.real.com. When you are there, click the orange "Download RealPlayer" button. On the next screen you will see two choices. On the left-hand side of the screen, you will be offered the paid version of the RealPlayer. Toward the bottom of the right-hand column, you will see a smaller "Download the Free RealPlayer" link. The choice is yours, but the Webcast can be heard with the free RealPlayer.
The rest is simple. Let's assume you want to download the free RealPlayer. Click on the link below and follow the download instructions.
Windows Media Player: If you don't have a current Windows Media Player on your computer, click the link below to download a free player. Simply choose the player appropriate to your computer's operating system (e.g., Windows XP) and press the download button. http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/download/
