    I hope someone can help. Up until recently I used to liten the radio from
    Ireland everyday in work. I live abroad so it was a great way to pass the
    day. When I click on the station in media player, it says "connecting to
    media", "locating media" and then back to "connecting to media". Finally I
    get this message "Windows Media Player cannot play any items in this
    playlist. For additional information, right-click an item that cannot be
    played, and then click Error Details".

    Can anyone help? Can I simply change ports?

    Just to let you all know that the reason for my problem is that management
    have decided to restrict acces to the radio. I'm told that you can apparentyl
    tunnel around the problem. If anyone can offer advice on this it would be

    I'm on a stand alone PC at home so I don't have the "restrictive management"
    issue. I would appreciate any advice anyone can provide as to how to fix
    this. Thanks

    I have the same problem months ago. Last week I was searching for a program
    to watch live TV and after I downloaded a program (no remember which one it
    was) and installed Opera, I manged to watch streaming video and live music,
    but not with the WMP, but with the "media player classic". After I formatted
    my HD and reinstalled Windows XP, WMP worked fine for the first day, and the
    second day, nothing!! I'm sure it is not a problem of the websites, but I'm
    sure 100% it is a problem with WMP. I don't think there is a solution for
    this right now and I hope Microsoft is working on that. If there any
    solution, I would appreciate it. From my side, if I mange to make it work
    with "media player classic", I'll post it here.

    Thanks a lot
