Dotpitch - if this is an XMPlay limitation, as Fraggie says and you quote, then how come I can play the BBC stream in XMPlay using the Tara plugin? Or perhaps this means `limitation only on native plugins'?
Native plugins can ask XMPlay to do all the I/O stuff - this is very convenient and natural.
And since XMPlay can't use RTSP neither can the RA plugin. (At least for now.)
Bad news: Your RealAudio plugin seems to wreak havoc with Highly Advanced (the GSF plugin for Winamp by CaitSith2). With both Highly Advanced and your RealAudio plugin installed, XMPlay keeps crashing whenever I try to play GSF files. Once I removed the RA plugin, it was back to business as usual.
It doesn't crash here, so I guess it has been fixed in the meantime.
The plugin decects all codecs well (7 loaded codecs). But starting *.ra stream brings a message that RealAudio is not properly installed. I tried to put pncrt.dll into windows\system32 directory also.
What is wrong?
This is what I do:
1. Install RealAlternative 1.48
2. Copy codec dlls to a xmplay subfolder
3. Copy pncrt.dll to windows\system32
4. Uninstall RealAlternatvie
5. Setup path in plugin config
You can bypass steps 2-5.
The message you talk about doesn't come from the plugin, please cite it exactly.
