Re: [vox] Crossover Plugin?

You can get Crossover at http://www.codeweavers.com; I guess it's part
of the WINE project.

It supports QuickTime 5, Windows Media 6.4, Windows Real Player 8, and a
bunch of other formats.  As I mentioned, I can now listen to KXJZ
streaming on my Linux desktop (though I'm told by their engineers that
starting next week KXJZ will begin streaming in RA format as well -- I
don't know why I'm obsessed with this particular issue).

There's a trial version which works fine though it pops up nag windows.

Installation was easy and painless for me, and aside from a couple of
minor issues with ensuring the NS 6.2 can see the proper plugins, it's
working just fine.  It's supposed to work well with Netscape, Konqueror,
Opera (I think), and Mozilla (although there is a bug in Mozilla,
apparently, which prevents it from seeing Windows media streaming files
-- so I just have a launcher to WM on my panel, and a list of streaming
URL's that I listen to bookmarked).

There's a review of the product at
