I'm on plusnet and can't access any of the streams using any of the players!
Realplayer reports a message sayings the server only accepts multcast
connections. Windows media player and quicktime report there is a server
error.

Can't help you much as BT are unfortunately not one of the trialists (
anyone perhaps know why? ), but you may have to enable Multicast / IGMP in
your router.
Best to check with PlusNet

How do I get Multicast?
Almost all modern computers are capable of receiving Multicast. You just
need to first check that your Internet Service Provider (ISP) is working (or
peering) with the BBC to allow you to use services through Multicast. If
they are, it's simple - just click on the relevant link and it should work
in RealPlayer. If not, you can always ask them why and encourage them to
provide the service. You may also need to check that your home broadband
router is defaulting to Multicast. If not, it may need configuring.

Hi Dan,

Multicast is currently in trial and needs your account enabling before it
will work.

Take a look at

if your hardware is compatible then drop me an email )
with your username and I'll pass your details on to the guys that are
looking after the trial.


With Regards,
