apparently, there is a beta version of the Windows MediaPlayer for Mac
users. this was mentioned to me by a coworker here (David Anderson) who much
better versed in things that "byte" than i.
here's the url for the Microsoft download page:
for what it's worth, some additional research on whether or not a station has
both RealAudio or MediaPlayer or Netshow or whatever for use with streaming
audio has indeed brought up the sole hesitation: cost. (server space and
associated programs don't come cheap, i guess)
many broadcast outlets on the web have had the foresight to see the value of
webcasting, and it available to as many potential listeners as possible.
other broadcasters are still getting their feet wet, so to speak, and will
each attempt to put their own value on webcasting/associated costs.
but Mac users, go ahead and give it a try. and if it works, share the news!
