ok, i wonder if anyone can help, i am trying on various websites to play clips and listen to radio feeds via windows media player 11 on vista. Everytime i click 'play' it states that the media is opening. Then, after a few seconds it stops and goes back to saying 'ready'.An example of this problem was on click here where i try to open a live radio feed.
My friend has windows vista and the same components and it works perfectly on his computer.

Please can someone help :D

I have had this on the odd occasion, and it's always turned to be a very (very) slow internet connection.

Are you on Dial up, od Broad Band.

I noticed your name is or could be 'oleary', Your not in Southern Ireland are you.

I say this because I have a mate there and he cannot use the BBC iPlayer.

Ok, Try This,

Internet Options, Security Tab, Custom Level... Button, Scroll down to,

'Download signed ActiveX controls (not secure)' Bullseye 'Prompt (Recomended)'.

'Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins', Bullseye 'Enable'.

'Script ActiveX controls marked safe for scripting*', Bullseye 'Enable'.
