To those where it's not working, check this:

- The 'Windows Media Plugin' shoule be in /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/

- Make sure you don't have Flip4mac installed (or other software that takes over WMV handling)!

And then.. please: Simply stating 'Its not workig..' is not gonna help. WHAT is not working??? The media stream, the widget loading etc???

"Make sure you don't have Flip4mac installed (or other software that takes over WMV handling)!"

-Oh that's just great! So you seriously suggest that I must remove my paid for, and(by the way) really good piece of software, to enjoy your Widget???

Surely it must be possible to make this kind of Widget without having to rely on Microsoft or other non built-in system software!!!

Until then - it's goodbye Radio 100 FM...

Well, you're "perfectly great paied for" software does NOT play the file - as is mentioned close to 100 times on their support forum - ok?

I have paid for it too - to get rid of M$ - but the current version simply won't play all .asx streams.

There is really NOTHING I can do, as a Widget = a webpage, and you simply embed the stream as the right tpe, and in this case, Flip4Mac hijacks the contenttype for MS Media and their software is not working.

So please, stop bashing ME because you have software installed that kills the functionallity..

All the best,

Thanks for the great radio widget!! It works fine as advertised on my 3 year old mac running 10.4.3. Don't know why the previous reviewer was so unhappy?? Føler som om jeg er hjemme i Danmark næsten :)

Why on earth make a widget that requires Windows Media Player on a Mac??

..and furthermore - it dosn't work on my machine anyways. (And I HAVE Mac OS X 10.4.3 and Windows Media Player installed)

Get with the programme Mr. Peterhansel.

Well, the reason for making a Widget instead of using the fullblown application is simple. It's just a lot more elegant.

Second, a lot of features is possible by using a native Max OS X interface, and not a MS almost-maintained-app.

Third, it's just fun to see what's possible to code in Dashboard, and this was a great starting point.

Ohh.. and I don't wan't a PC running all the time just to hear my favorite radio station at work.. ;-)
