For someone who is taking a Fench class, or is planning a trip to France, this is a great program. If you already speak French, then it's good to see some news not from an Anglo point of view.

Very cool. Did not have the time to explore all the channels and options yet, but seems to work right out of the box. Definetely an improvement over bookmarking all channels and having to remember whether they use WMP or Real to stream.

Make sure you are using the latest version of RealPlayer 10, and not RealOne. If you still can't connect to some news, send me an email (the address is at the bottom of the ReadMe).

The interface is a bit clunky, but the application is handy and gets you there. Be sure to check out the Preferences: setting it up the way you want may makes a big difference. The list of available channels doesn't indicate which are Real or WMS so you might strike out on some channels if you don't have the right player installed.

y a pas mal des gens ici, I'll give it a try, I study politics in the US, listening to RFI and other french news online is one of my activities, since 1997. Used to be fine with Real Player, but those french gov-web has now so many pop-ups and different softwares. Il has become a burden to listen and watch french news, such as TF1 ou La 2 sur internet. Si ce programme fonctionne comme qu'on le dit ici, would be extremely practical. empereur@empereur.com

Very interesting idea. Works perfectly for me, although for some channels the RealOne frame rate was very low (not the fault of this app). This seems to be a collection of links/scripts for RealOne Player for various European TV streams. It does what it says, does it fast, easy, and it's free. Kudos to the developer.

Just what is the nature of this software? Is it just a collection of links that get piped to WMP? Or does it do something special with the URL link?

FrenchTVNews goes to the channels' websites to get the link to the latest news (or other program), then sends it to WMP or RealPlayer. Advantages over using a browser : - quicker access to the latest video available - video is not surrounded by blinking ads - video size can be changed, even to fullscreen - it works (some videos, especially in WMP format, cannot be viewed from any of the Mac web browsers)

DO NOT DOWNLOAD. I REPEAT DO NOT DOWNLOAD. The second I tried to connect to one of the servers my comp froze. The next four times i tried to reboot the finder kept restarting. Finally after 6 times, when it worked, it messed up all the docs I had on my desktop, deleting the Word icons and making them all text edit. Really gave me a scare, but not worth the hassle. Will mess up your finder. - P.S I am on a 640 MB SDRAM 700 Mhz PowerPCG3 IBook, mac osx 10.3.5

Well, this is the first time a user reports such behavior. I'm really sorry for what happened. Could you send me an e-mail describing exactly what you did and what happened ? Were RealPlayer and Windows Media Player already installed ? Thanks, and sorry again.
