Our "STREAM" link takes you to a small playlist file that
contains the address of the actual MP3 file. AOL 6.0 includes the AOL
Media Player, a subset of the functionality of WinAmp, that is configured
in such a proprietary way as to not understand this convention. You
have two choices:
Click on the "SAVE"
AOL Media Player will download and play the file for you like the other
link should. You'll have to right-click this link and choose "Save
Target as..." if you want to actually save the file to disk.
Disable AOL Media Player and use another Media Player
To disable AOL Media Player, do the following:
Click on "Settings" in the AOL Toolbar.
Choose "Preferences" from the menu.
Click on the "Multimedia" link.
Uncheck "Use AOL Media Player for supported file types"
you already have another Media Player (WinAmp, Windows Media Player,
RealPlayer, etc.) installed, it should now work normally. If not, you
can install one now or update an older version.
To install, choose a preference from one of the links at the bottom
of each Demo page playlist.
