Listen To Streaming Internet Radio/Music in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx 2

If you ever tried listening to streaming Internet Radio or Music from your web browser in Ubuntu Lucid and got the error messages ‘couldn’t find a suitable text/html decoder plug-in’, I’m going to show you how to fix that error and begin enjoying streaming radio in your web browser. While others are moving away from streaming MP3s in web browsers, some are still using this method to listen to radio.


Below is the image you’ll get when you tried to listen to streaming mp3 music online.




To resolve this issue, go to Applications –> Ubuntu Software Center.




Next, type ‘gecko-mediaplayer’ in the search box, then select and install Multimedia plug-in for Gecko browsers’.




When you’re done installing, go and test it. If the sound is low, click the Sound Applet from the top menu and select ‘Sound Preferences’




Select the Applications tab and adjust the volume control.






Thanks for reading and please come back soon.
