Hello, I'm trying to open multiple .asx files at once in windows media player and when I open another one while I'm watching one it closes that window and opens the new one. These .asx files are streaming video from cameras. I'm trying to watch a bunch at once so I can monitor the web cameras. Can anyone tell me how I can do this?

I believe that you have to use different applications...or buy software that is capable of monitoring multiple cameras at once.

I don't believe WMP is designed for this.

You'll need a webcam monitoring program for this - I've got one at the wife's office from Swann out of Australia. It came bundled with my 4 port add-on card, so I have no clue as to it's cost.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
