I have got windows media player 11 installed and XP SP2. plus Internet Explorer 7. (I generally use Firefox but you have to use Microsoft with the BBC player at the moment). When I try to play streaming video from online sources eg ITV.com or use the BBC iplayer, I can hear the sound OK but the picture is just a coloured scramble. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the player but get the same effect. Any suggestions would be most welcome.
Thanks for that. I have downloaded the flash player. If I "unlink" the ITV stream and run it in stand alone WMP 11, then it works but if I try to run it in the window on the site, all I get is the scrambled picture. I installed the Standard Codecs (accepting defaults) too but that doesn't seem to make any difference.
