    Hello dear members of the microsoft.public.windowsmedia.player newsgroup.

    Please I need a hand on the following point.

    I just upgraded to Windows Media Player 11 and cannot anymore connect into
    my favorite radio station the


    on mms protocol. It worked very well until upgrade from version 10 to
    version 11.

    Today I've got the error message that goes something this way:

    "The Windows Media Player can't read the file because of network error.The
    server may be down. Please check up you're connected to the network and that
    you proxy parameters are ok"

    Please notice that on the WMP 11 option/network/streaming proxy settings
    there's not anymore the mms protocol anymore as it was on version 10, but
    only http and RTSP.

    Perhaps by adding this MMS protocol to the network option could cope with
    the problem? How can I do so ?

    I'm running on Microsoft Windows XP version 2002 Pack 2

    please how can I solve the problem ?
