radio connection problem. New.

I am trying without success to connect to live commentaries through various sports websites such as click here but I am having no success at all. This problem started about a week ago. The sites in question say that they are definately transmitting and cant see why I cant connect. Excuse my ignorance here but do I have a javascript problem.

the site you linked to uses wma and wmv streaming. Check your firewall allows Windows media player to connect to the internet.

My pc is now telling me whilst trying to connect to click here live commentary that either the file is corrupt or that my windows media player cannot play this format. Any ideas please.

Windows firewall is allowing windows mediaTM stream recorder to access net. Could problem be with router firewall.

WMP/tools/options/file types.Make sure wmv and wma are ticked.

check Windows Media player is allowed.

wma and wmv are ticked and wmp is allowed to access net through windows firewall

next step is to check router firewall. If that's OK then it's as far as I can help you. If you are using WMP 10 you could try uninstalling then a reinstall from Microsofts site. If you are not using ver.10 then I suggest you install it anyway.

Thanks for your time. Wil check on ver.10
