Perhaps that is the case for stream listeners.  I was quoting (from
memory) media players usage figures I read somewhere.  Once someone is
using WMP, they are generally hooked, and there are 100's if not 1000's
of streams available in the Radio Tuner section.

I tried this some time ago and it played local ogg vorbis files ok but
would not stream.  It attempted to find the codec to download.
