Windows Media Player/warpradio.com problems - Mac Networking

I'd like to listen to Internet radio via [url]www.warpradio.com[/url] and [url]www.wlap.com[/url], but these sites require Windows Media Player. Tried to install WMP on an iBook running OS 9.2.2 but the installer consistently hangs while checking the hard drive with 95 items remaining to be installed. So, I switched to OS X (Jaguar) and tried installing WMP there. The installation ran just fine, but nothing happened when I clicked the "play now" link. Any suggestions? +++++++++++++++++++++++++ H.B.

    Default Windows Media Player/warpradio.com problems

    I'd like to listen to Internet radio via [url]www.warpradio.com[/url] and
    [url]www.wlap.com[/url], but these sites require Windows Media Player.

    Tried to install WMP on an iBook running OS 9.2.2 but the installer
    consistently hangs while checking the hard drive with 95 items
    remaining to be installed.

    So, I switched to OS X (Jaguar) and tried installing WMP there. The
    installation ran just fine, but nothing happened when I clicked the
    "play now" link.

    Any suggestions?

    None.

    My own experience with WMV on a Mac is that its a piece of crap. It
    tends to start and stop and audio and video can be out of sync.

    It is also apparently processor chip dependant as adding RAM to it
    produces little of a result.

    I also don't like the fact that a web URL can be embedded and while
    viewing a clip you may suddenly find your browser launches and looking
    at something you didn't want.
