Streaming Movies?
    #4366587 - 07/03/05 04:46 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Whenever I try and stream a movie using Windows Media Player, the program will start up, and then it appears to freeze. It will then basically be stuck until, I guess it downloads the movie, or something? It looks like the status is just stuck on 'connecting'.

It used to be that I could just click on a link, it would start up and instantly start playing.

Anyone know how to fix this retarded problem?

I have had this kind of problem before. I am not sure, but it seems that for WMA streams to work properly, WMP has to actually *connect* to internet.

Do you use Firefox? Probably.

Open up IE (I know, it sucks) and make sure it is connected (on in "work offline" mode) and the same with WMP. I am pretty sure MS has these programs like many of theirs inter-connected, so you may not have to do this on both of them.

Has worked for me in the past...

Nah I use internet Explorer.

I think the files I'm trying to stream are .avi.

I'm pretty sure WMP can connect to the internet as well.

Damn I thought everyone on here used firefox!

Did you make sure WMP wasn't in offline mode?

The "Work Offline" thing is not checked.
