It suggest manual install but I cannot find where to do it.

Firefox doesn't install it, just downloads it. Windows installer installs it. What error massage are you getting on the install?

Side note: I listen to a lot of online radio but I use Winamp. Here's a list of the stations.

Thanks a lot guapo!
I try to listen to:
Kcrw (Californian Radio)
http://www.kcrw.com/media_player_ch...
And FIP, a very cool eclectic French radio:
http://players.tv-radio.com/radiofr...

When I load the Kcrw url, firefox mentions there is a missing plugin:
I click Install Missing Plugin top right, it offers to install Real Player 10.5
I click download and it says: No plugin were installed.
Then it suggest manual install, and the link takes me to the Real.com page.

I can listen to these radio in itunes but I would like to listen to them in my browser (I can do that on Internet explorer)
On the FIP url it seems to load fine but there is no sound..


Thanks again!

If everything works in Itunes, I would stay with that.

I chat with someone who worked for Real & even he doesn't like their software.
