    I am receiving the following error in Player 9:

    "The specified stream type is not recognized. (Error=C00D07E2)"

    I am using an activeX control (i.e. <OBJECT id='mediaPlayer'
    classid='CLSID:22d6f312-b0f6-11d0-94ab-0080c74c7e95' ...>

    to download a WMV file from our server. Here's the strange thing. When the protocol is HTTP, everything works fine. However, when I switch to HTTPS, I receive the error above. I can use HTTP when trying to reach the server internally from our network. However, I need to use HTTPS when trying to reach the server from the web as a regular user.

    I am indicating the filename with the following syntax:
    <param name='filename' value="http://....>
    <param name='filename' value="https://....>

    When I try to access the file over HTTPS as a regular link, everything works fine. So, the activeX control somehow does not like the HTTPS protocol. Does this indicate we have some firewall issue with our network?

    Have you set up proxy settings in the player (standalone) that you have not
    configured in the ActiveX control?

    I'm not sure about this, but depending on the version of the ActiveX
    control, if it is using the old WMP 6.4 player, you may need to either
    configure proxy settings in the 6.4 player settings (by running
    mplayer2.exe), and/or Internet Options in Windows (if the ActiveX control is
    reading those settings).

    Josh,

    Thanks for the suggestion. However, I am not enforcing any proxy settings. My proxy defaults to the setting of the browser. I wanted to mention another thing.

    I uploaded an MP3 file to the server. To my surprise, I was able to play it in the Windows Media Player over the https protocol using the activeX control. So, the puzzle is a little more complicated. Can it be an audio vs. video problem? Probably not. Is there something about the WMV file when it was originally created?

    Have you thought about using the Windows Media Player 9 ActiveX control
    (clsid:6BF52A52-394A-11d3-B153-00C04F79FAA6)?
