Normally I listen to a radio station on my computer, I click the "Listen Live" button on their website and listen through my browser. It has always worked fine. I think it uses Windows Media player (9 series) through my browser. It doesn't work now in Mozilla firefox OR IE. It says "connecting to media" and then, "ready", but doesn't play. I'm not sure what changed, unless someone did a windows update.. would that change something? Is there a setting I should change? It has nothing to do with active x or popups, both of which are allowed. As far as I can tell, my firewall also allows it and the firewall hasnt changed since it used to work. I've tried installing service pack 2, and also upgrading to windows media player 11. When I installed wmp 11 now the thing won't even do the "connecting to media", it just does nothing. I'm at work and I will go insane without my radio. help?

Hello mszaw,

Could you provide a link to the site in question? It could be a problem with the site.
Regards,

Alan.

I have just tried it and can't get anything. I would suspect it is an error with the site, you should contact them about the problem and see if they can fix it.
Regards,

Alan.
