I keep getting this message if i try to view some videos on line. What does this mean???

Windows Media Player cannot play the file because a network error occurred. The server might not be available. Verify that you are connected to the network and that your proxy settings are correct.

Check this came from here


C00D11B3: Encountered a network problem
Windows Media Player encountered a network problem. You might encounter this error message for one of the following reasons:

* The server is not online or is busy. Try again later.
* You are not connected to the local area network (LAN) or to the Internet. Connect to the network or Internet, and then try again.
* The proxy server settings for the Player are not configured properly. Verify that your proxy settings are correct, and then try again.


To verify your proxy server settings

* On the Tools menu, click Options, click the Network tab, and then verify your settings in the Streaming proxy settings area.

Notes

* If you do not know what your proxy server settings should be, on the Network tab, select a protocol, click Configure, and then select Autodetect proxy settings or Use proxy settings of the Web browser (available for HTTP protocol only).
* If you are connected to the Internet through a dial-up connection, you might not be able to choose the proxy server. For more information, consult your Internet service provider or network administrator.

It could very well be that the file you're trying to see is not available, or the site is having problems.

Try to find a video that you know will load online, and if it loads, then your MediaPlayer is fine. I would imagine uTube would be a good testing site to see.

Just to add to what Walkman said. If you have a particular video in mind, give the link to it here and others who use WMP will try to view it. I have Real Player as my default on FF and IE. I will also let you know if the particular video can be viewed using Real player.
