Windows media player not playing online radio.

  irwind 17:06 05 Mar 2009

I am using WMP11 on XP with Kaspersky internet security 7. In the last few days I have not been able to play online audio content using WMP. I tried to listen BBC radio on wmp which said connecting first then went to buffering then ready. But audio does not play. Luckily bbc gives option between Real player which works fine. Unfortunately most radio stations do not give that option.

I tried copying the stream url and run it directly from WMP but no luck. The player is not set as offline. I am not sure why this has happened only recently.

Interestingly the same happens on my laptop which has vista and kaspersky.

I would really appreciate any help in getting this back to work.
