tried it, didn't help, my machine isn't really strong enough to run it with other stuff running at the same time so i had to roll it back with extreme difficulty.

Fixed! Went to control panel, add/remove windows components, removed windows media player, and wmp classic was already on the machine, so now it streams fine!

no, wont work for me as there is no connection speed option in wmp 6.4.9 or windows media lite, both of which are the only versions of windows media player I can get to semi work (files play, some streams do, some don't) Thanks though

I thought it was fixed but its still messed up. Mods, if you want, kill my other post about the same subject since no one has answered it.

wmp works in ie.

In firefox I have IE Media Mimic and User Agent Switcher and doing everything I can to trick cnn, et al into thinking I'm using IE, but I keep getting the same error on some vids and then others work fine. I don't understand.

There are various known issues between FF and WMP. I use an add-on called MediaPlayerConnectivity, which is a pluin which controlls are sreaming content on the internet. You have to install Macromedia,Quicktime, RealPlayer and WMP ( no matter what version) and it handles everything perfectly. Remove all player related add-ons and you are good to go..
