WinXP 64 and BBC Radio Player
RealPlayer is used by the BBC and unfortunately being a bunch of lazy bastards never got round to writing a nice win64 version. But you can use RealAlternative (much better anyway) to use the Radio Player service. BBC won't tell you that because apparently they're resolving the problem by being in discussion with RealNetworks - have been infact for about a year and a half. RealNetworks are saying that RealAlternative nicked their code but never took them to court. Either put up or shut up. And BBC, it's a case of innocent till proved guilty. Hopefully they'll dump the RealNetworks bedpartnering and get something that will work on all platforms.
