I've tried with firefox and mozilla-mplayer and WMP 5.1seems to work
(i'm not using a 5.1 audio output, only a simple headphones), the real
version seems to have a problem here (mplayer was stuck on

If you want to have a local copy on your HD you can use mimms (but
only for the WMP, don't know if there's something for streamed real
file), but you need to put the correct URI for the streaming file
(look for the "mms://" string in the html code, for example
mms://wm.bbc.co.uk/radio4/hitchhikers/h2g3_episode1.asf =)
