I have Windows Vista Business and Media Player version 11.6000.6324
When I try to listen to Internet Radio (I tried several US stations) the player issues two types of error messages, sometimes the first, sometimes the second:
"Windows Media Player cannot support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file".
"Windows Media Player cannot play the file because the specified protocol is not supported. If you typed a URL in the open URL dialog box, try using a different transport protocol (foe exemple http: or rstp:)"
The player works fine for audio and video coming from audio and video files, stored on the hard drive CDs and DVDs.
I tried tp listen to Internet Radio without firewall - the problem persists.
In the Media Player "options", in the Network tab, I confirmed that all possible protocols are checked.
I do manage to listen to the stations I tried on another computer which runs Windows XP.
