Will get 19783 once its out for windows, as I am unable to play Radio 1->7 although I thought they were RTSP as well? I know they use RealPlayer (well RealAlternative as I am never installing Real Player!) when I visit them in a browser?
Ok I have a work around for Windows and Linux users that want to use Real media Listen Live streams. I have uploaded a new version which changes the nature of the Listen Live list. It now contain URLs which point directly to the streams rather than back to a plugin location. What this allows you to do is for a station select the context menu and then select "Play using". If you have defined an external player such as mplayer then you can select that and the stream will play using that external player.
This method doesn't work for catchup and can't really be made to. It takes too long to look up a list of catchup stream URLs.
It's ugly I know but it works. The External Player thread is here http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=43511
