Just got a new computer and have tried to listen to online music and it will play the video part but gives me absolutely no sound. I have sound working with everything else but not the Windows Media Player and I can't think of anything else to try with it.

I am running Windows XP Home Edition.

I also tried to listen to the online music with the Real Player and it works fine for the video and sound.

Thanx in advance for any help with this!!! :thumbsup:

If you click on the Radio button at the top of WMP, do those stations work?

There is a program that you can download here:

http://www.headbands.com/gspot/gspot221.exe

that allows you to determine what codec you need to hear the sound in the video files you are playing. Run the tool, and locate a video file that does not work. It will then tell you the sound codec you need to have.

Google for and install that codec and see if it works.
