What browser are you using? I could be that you need to download a flash player to see the material, you can download one here.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

CNET editors' review
Excellent
8.0
out of 10
The good: Windows Media Player 11 has a simple and visually effective interface; excellent performance, especially with large media libraries; and solid integration with Urge, its de facto music service.

The bad: Still in beta, Windows Media Player 11 has some bugs to work out, though we didn't notice any major ones. Plus, there's no podcast directory yet.

The bottom line: For Windows XP users, Windows Media Player 11 is a must-have upgrade. It's Microsoft's best jukebox effort to date, thanks to a thoughtful redesign, impressive performance, and a ton of useful features.

If you are experiencing problems that did not occur with WMP10, you may want to rollback from WMP11 to WMP10. Below is a link to directions to do that.

At the bottom of the page in the link below is the download for Flash uninstaller. Uninstall all instances of Flash from your computer and then on the top of the page is the link to download the latest version of flash.

Are you using Firefox 2.0 and WMP 11? If so, I think it's just that the plug-in hasn't been updated for WMP11 (I had this problem on my Vista system).

Here's a link to the fix that I found: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.ph...&highlight=
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.

Hey thanks that worked xD
Now I'm having a problem with Youtube because whenever I load something, it goes for 10 seconds, and then firefox freezes. When I close firefox, a popup says "a plugin has performed an illegal action, you are advised to restart firefox" (Shockwave Flash). How can I fix this one?
