=== What will play? ===
+
Any format that '''[http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/ QuickTime]''' supports should work inworld, as well as standard webpages. So a good general rule is to try to play URLs in QuickTime Player or your web browser.
+
 
+
Formats like [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flash_video Flash video] and [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Media Windows Media] aren't supported at this time.

+
== Play media externally ==
+
Media streams used inworld can also be played in external players, depending on what formats they support. '''iTunes''' and '''Winamp''' for audio, and '''QuickTime Player''' and '''VLC''' for video are among the more popular ones. Since these are 3rd-party programs, Linden Lab doesn't support them, but here's basically how to make media streams work.
+
 
+
Once you have a media URL (e.g., xxxx which is an Internet radio stream):
+
 
+
=== iTunes ===
+
iTunes runs on Windows and Mac.
+
 
+
=== Winamp ===
+
Winamp only runs on Windows.
+
 
+
=== QuickTime Player ===
+
QuickTime runs on Windows and Mac.
+
 
+
=== VLC ===
+
VLC runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
