  1. again me with new problem. this time I was trying to watch big brother live stream but I get this error : "Windows Media Player cannot play the file because the specified protocol is not supported. If you typed a URL in the Open URL dialog box, try using a different transport protocol (for example, "http:" or "rtsp:")." when i saw adress it was mms://... and everything was fine until I installed this new wmp11

    I guess 10.0 was the latest version of Windows Media Player when that support article came out. I guess we can safely say if there's a Windows Media Player 12, you'll need to rename the 12.0 folder for the streams to work again. ;)
