    I'm facing a weird problem :
    I'm trying to play a stream from Windows Media Serie 9 Server 2003. I'm
    using RTSP protocol.
    Playing the stream in WMP 11.0.5721.5230 under XP is fine. Playing the
    same stream in WMP 11.0.6000.6344 under Vista fails.
    Both players are in the same LAN, with same options. Under Vista, WMP11
    tries to connect and finally ends with a connection error.

    What could be the problem ???
    (The stream is a huge WMV9 file (more than 5h, more than 1GB). I can
    manage the streaming server part to change any options.)

    Thank you.
