Not sure if this is a streaming video issue or what, but I'll include a link with an example of what I'm talking about:

http://www.rock101.com/multimedia/video_ga...jor=73984#video

I try to play the file but nothing happens. Any idea what's wrong here? Do I need to change my settings or something? I've tried to play it in both IE and Firefox, nothing works.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

I tried the file and it was no problem. My setup is :

Firefox
MediaPlayerConnectivity
and all major players installed ( QuickTime/RealPlayer/WMP11)

MPC will controll all onjline and streaming content and my troubled days are over.

Suggest you do the following :

* Clean your Cache and Cookies in IE:
  • Close all instances of Outlook Express and Internet Explorer
  • Go to Control Panel > Internet Options > General tab
  • Click the "Delete Cookies" button
  • Next to it, Click the "Delete Files" button
  • When prompted, place a check in: "Delete all offline content", click OK
* Clean your Cache and Cookies in Firefox (In case you also have Firefox installed):
  • Go to Tools > Options.
  • Click Privacy in the menu on the left side of the Options window.
  • Click the Clear button located to the right of each option (History, Cookies, Cache).
  • Click OK to close the Options window
    Alternatively, you can clear all information stored while browsing by clicking Clear All.
    A confirmation dialog box will be shown before clearing the information.
* Clean other Temporary files + Recycle bin
  • Go to start > run and type: cleanmgr and click ok.
  • Let it scan your system for files to remove.
  • Make sure Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, and Recycle Bin are the only things checked.
  • Press OK to remove them.
Also check your firewall settings
Check your version of Java ( latest is 1.6.u1)

My recently solved problem was different, but maybe this will help. Sometimes odd streaming links wouldn't work (can't remember them now), but the main thing I was trying fix was the videos at cnn.com and msnbc.com in Firefox and IE. They would play really fast if I got them to load at all, and the audio sounded like chipmunks. I've been trying for months to find a fix. Last Sunday I had made a fresh Ghost Image of my system so I thought I'd play some more trying to fix the chipmunks, since I could get back easily if I messed my system up.

I found this codec:

http://www.free-codecs.com/reviews/Codec_Pack_All_in_1.htm

The reviews there aren't that good, but where I found out about it had great reviews so I tried it. I won't go into the hours I spent trying WMP 11 even, and a bunch of other stuff first, including FF's Media Player Connectivity. Suffice it to say, after all that I used my Ghost Image and then just installed the codec pack. Everything works! Even in FF where I had it partially fixed before, and with WMP 9, although I've set my alternative Classic player that comes with the XP Codec pack as my default. I sent in my comments at free-codecs. I'm honey46222 there and it's post 96.
