    Everytime I try to play a .wmv file and Windows Media player starts within a
    browser I receive a message saying "connecting to media" after several
    minutes I receive an error message saying

    Windows Media Player Error
    -1072885325: Windows Media Player cannot play the file because a network
    error occured. The server might not be available, Verify that you are
    connected to the network and that your proxy settings are correct.

    I receive this error message at every site that attempts to use Windows
    Media Player in a browser.

    If a site loads thier media in WMP that is not nested in a browser, the
    media displays fine.

    I've tried reinstalling WMP v10. I've also reregister "regsvr32 msdxm.ocx" I
    turned off all firewalls and turned the browser back to it's default
    settings. Still I cannot get the WMP to play inside a browser.

    That error means that the server is not responding. What browser, what
    version of WMP, what version of Windows, and have you checked your network
    settings yet?

    I know the servers are responding. THis happens at every site. If I cut and
    past the url into the regular version for WMP everything works fine. XP pro
    w/sp2 - WMP is version 10

    Download LSP-Fix ( and check to see if you
    have any LSPs that are not related to Windows XP. Various firewall
    products, PGP, etc, install LSPs that interfere with your ability to
    connect. If one of them is not working properly, it seems that Windows
    Media Player (in the web browser) loses the ability to stream -- although it
    continues to work fine if you open the URL in the standalone browser.
    LSP-Fix will let you selectively remove the Layered Service Provider that is
    causing the trouble.
