  1. Environment:
    Real Player is version 10.5,
    Windows Media Player is version 10,
    Windows XP.

    Problem:
    when I click a online streaming radio link, for example, mms://media.lewisnews.com/TVNEWSLies . Real Player pops out and tries to play it, but Windows Media Player throws an error:

    Windows Media Player cannot play the file because the specified protocol is not supported. In the Open URL dialog, try opening the file using a different transport protocol (for example, "http:" or "rtsp:").

    The error code is C00D11BB, according to MS Windows solution, Tools > Options > Network, and tick all Streaming Protocols (UDP, TCP, HTTP) can solve the problem. But, it din't work at all~

    I have tried reinstall Real Player and also reinstall Windows Media Player (but, Windows Media Player doesn't allow me to uninstall it), it throws the same error again.

    Can someone give some advices?


    Thank you very much~
