streaming wmv and RM formats
its a delight to have winamp play wmv and RM files perfectly from my hard drive. not surprisingly, this made me wanna throw WMP and RealOne in the trash (after i pass them through the shredder of course).
but that all was before i found out that winamp can't play wmv and RM streams. when i click a link that points to a wmv or RM stream, winamp opens up and it looks at me like i did something dumb. nothing happens at all. i see the file location in winamp but no stream playback whatsoever.
am i doing something wrong or is winamp not yet able to support wmv and RM streams? i knows millions of you people out there would rather to have one program to play two types of media instead of two players to play two types of media (what a terrible waste).
is there a plugin to make winamp play the mentioned streams or would such feature need to be implemented in "deep code"?
