Yes, I have the cvs build from 11-20-2002 and the latest available
FWIW--Using avifile, I cannot play the audio ONLY stream
broadcast 10pm-1am EDT 7pm-11pm Pacific time.
Ironically I have no problem aviplaying audio and video of Billy Gates very
own archived speech from 2002's International Consumer Electronics Show:
http://www.microsoft.com/winme/0201/17112/ces256.asx or slower bitrate
It is for this reason I believe the Rense3.asx redirection file and/or the
stream it points to is screwed up. CRN Media is of little help in this
matter, they cater primarily to Winslaves and only offer Win alternatives in
the form Windows Media Station Files (Noder or NSC) and archived shows as
WMA's. If at all possible, I'd be interested to know your results. WINE is a
difficult and time consuming beast to wrestle with, but I'm willing as a last
Although I appreciate any clues to why this particular stream doesn't play AT
ALL on my (or any other?) Linux boxes, I didn't post here for help with
avifile. Avifile specific replies should be sent off-list. I'd like to get at
least the Windows Media Player working with WINE. Perhaps I need to provide
more information from the winedbg?
