Callers during this Show
Robert in New Jersey calls and talks about his new baby Discus fish and about his unusual breeding trio of one male and two female Angel Fish.
Roshan from Katy, Texas, calls and says he bought an 18" long 30-watt fluorescent blub for his 20-gallon planted aquarium, but his plants still look weak. Roshan also asks about Mikrogeophagus ramirezi, which are a species of Dwarf Cichlids, that are often called Rams.
Evan from Colorado calls and Tom asks him if he has any comments about aquarium lights that might help Roshan. Evan also talks about his new Serpae Tetras. Lastly, Evan says he can't listen to the Live Pet Fish Talk show in iTunes on his new Mac computer, but he can download the archived shows. Does anyone know how to help Evan listen to the live show on his iMac?
Brian in Roseville, California, sent us an email.
Hi Tom and Nevin, Sorry to hear that Evan still can't listen to the live show. As you discovered, iTunes works for the podcast, but is not the recommended application to use listen to the live show. Windows Media Player ... /default.aspx

should work. With Windows Media Player installed on the Macintosh, these steps should work:
1. Right click on the link to the live show in the PFT Listening Guide.
Left click on Copy Shortcut. Open the Windows Media Player. (It's probably in your dock.) Left click on File, then left click on Open URL. Paste the copied URL and click OK. If that doesn't work, try the MMS feed for the show instead of the asx file from above. I've determined that it is:
(Tom and Nevin, please correct this if it isn't right!)
that should work in VLC, Windows Media Player, and in iTunes. To get it to work in iTunes, follow these steps (Flip4Mac required): Make sure the Flip4Mac plug-in is installed -- this will allow you to play the streaming .mms URL in QuickTime. Open QuickTime Player, then use File: Open URL (or just hit Command-U). Type in your URL -- mms:// (Pet Fish Talk), then click OK. The URL will take a while to open; be patient, let it buffer as needed. Save the stream as a .mov file using File: Save As, etc. Just save it to your Desktop as an ordinary .mov file; name it as you'd like. Drag the .mov file you just created into your iTunes Library. Play the movie file in iTunes. It will again take some time to buffer and stream, and it will not show up in iTunes as a streaming radio URL, but it will play as one. I would test these steps out, except that it is Tuesday, and I don't normally have access to my mac from 1:00 to 3:00 on Wednesday to verify it.

Hi Brian, thank you for your email and for the helpful details about how to listen to PFT live on a Mac. We should have remembered to recommended that Evan try WMP!! Thanks for reminding us and for all the other details. By the way here is another link to the download for WMP for the Macs with OSX, like Evan's. ... windowsmediaplayerformacosx.html
and this link seems to work better for us.
