    This forum runs on volunteers. I don't know what and why or posts are deleted, but it could have been for some reason or another by the mods.

    To the matter at hand:
    Try upgrading to WMP 11 via Microsoft's website
    If you're using IE6 it could be hidden on the side bar (like how Favorites, History are). Click on the Media Button on the top of the browser.
    Check Internet Options >Advanced Tab for correct media settings
    ^same with WMP settings..

    *related but unrelated note for your situation: ninemsn video streams won't work in firefox..

    Your other posts were deleted because you double posted the same content multiple times. You are only allowed one post per issue.

    Further, as mentioned above people here are VOLUNTEERING their help. This is the second thread in which I have seen you being rude to people here. Show a little appreciation for what you get here, otherwise you will find yourself with no other choice but to go and find this "better" help you speak of.

    Simple answer: Use firefox.

    The particular link he gave us needs the Windows Media Player plugin to work.. which is native to IE (hence ninemsn = microsoft). If he uses FF he'll also have to go dig for a wmp/compatible FF plugin.

    Please, at least investigate the site linked first before commenting.
