    Yes, many others are having the same problem and NOTHING is being done to
    resolve it! I have read posts, performed what is suggested over and over
    and nothing is making WMP10 work on Windows XP with online videos! It is
    ridiculous! Version 9 worked fine.....the problem is with Version
    10.....period.....

    Good morning. You both had posts on the Newsgroup about problems with online
    videos and WMP 10. I have been having the same problem ever since updating
    to 10. It was driving me crazy, seeing posts and posts on the Newsgroups
    with no solution.

    I have finally found that solution for me! If you open WMP10, click on
    Tools, Options, Player....check the Connect to the Internet (overrides other
    commands).

    Specifically I was trying to view videos on hgtv.com, after doing the above,
    I went to the website and voila....it worked.....Hallelujah! I had done so
    many other clicks and checks and never saw this one little thing posted until
    today...so I hope it works for you!

    Have a great day.
