What format is the music? WMA or MP3? If its MP3 then its universal and can be played on just about every player out there. If its WMA it wont be able to play and youll have to convert it to MP3 using something like DBPowerAMP with the WMA codec. and besides most songs are about 4mb at a good format. Thats too big for most emails to send.

I assume you are using AOL, since you mention them in your thread.

I used AOL when I was in the UK, and had no problem sending music files to KayEm in the US.

Just find the file and attach it to your email as if it is just a normal attachment (which it is). I was able to send 10MB file attachments with no problem. (I used dial-up too !)

I never used the AOL player, because it was a pain in the arse. I normally used Realplayer which is available on the net.

I have a question about a media player.

I tried a new thread, but it said that one existed already and this one is what I found, so I'll ask my question here...


How do I change my default media player from Windows Media Player to Winamp ?

I have already downloaded Winamp.

thanks

elevatedone > you need to track down the menu item that says "Set Program Access and Defaults". Im running a sliced up copy of XP Pro, and it was at the very top of my All Programs menu on the Start Menu, but it may be slightly different for you. Once there select the radio button for Custom, and hit the downward pointing arrow to the right of it, and scroll to find the media player area. This is a very useful area because you can also set your default browser, email client, Instant Messenger, and even your Java VM.

Open Winamp.
Hit Ctrl-P for preferences.
Go to "file types" and select the kinds of files you want Winamp to be the default player for. On my version (5.0 Pro) it has buttons to select 'all,' 'audio only,' 'video only,' and 'none.'
That *should* do the trick.

Thanks, I did that, it still doesn't work though.

What I'm trying to do is , play a internet radio station on my computer, when I click it, it opens Windows Media Player and I get an error message.

here is the site :

www.somafm.com...

I try clicking on " Drone Zone" to listen to it..

and when Windows Media Player comes up I get this :

Cannot play back the file. The format is not supported.

any ideas ?

elevatedone > I believe thats a shoutcast station, right click on the link you cliked on before to listen, and select Copy Shortcut (in IE) or Copy Link Location (in Mozilla) This copies the locationof the link to the clipboard, then open winamp, right click to bring up the main menu, point over to Play, then to Play URL. A window will pop up with a text box, press Ctrl + V to paste into the box the URL you copied before, and hit the open button. That should get it playing, and to make it much easier to get playing again, bring the main winamp menu up again, drag over to Bookmarks, then to the item on the sub menu called Add Current as Bookmark, to add the current playing station to your winamp bookmarks. With this done you only have to bring up the main menu, drag to bookmarks, and then down to the bookmark created for the station to play that station. May sound kind of complicated, but once you do it a few times it becomes second nature.

I tried this too, I think it's a conspiracy against me and music.

Did I mention that I'm trying to do this from work ? Could it be the firewalls and security stopping me ?
I can listen to some other stations.
