NPR Streaming Issues

NPR prefers Real Player, but I HATE real. That stupid POS software keeps trying to break through my firewall to download stuff I don't need.

Anyway, I tried opening the NPR stream (featured on NPR.org) and I always get this error message on Winamp:

"error synching to mpeg"

How do I fix this?

Chances are it is a Real Media stream. What is the URL?

When I click on one of the streaming links at NPR.org, I get a box asking me to choose between RealSquealer and Windoze Media. Winamp is compatible Windows Media playlists/streams, so select WM instead. If you don't get the selection box, try deleting your cookies then try the streaming link again.

Also, make sure WAX files are selected in Winamp Preferences...
Winamp > Ctrl+P > General Preferences > File Types > highlight/select WAX > make sure 'Restore file associations at Winamp startup' is checkmarked > close & restart Winamp

Please do not PM me for tech support. Any request for tech support through PM will be ignored.
