Why cant I listen to online radio?

  1. I am running Windows Vista Ultimate SP1. Everytime i try to listen to radio on-line (i have tried several sites with no luck!) It will not start streaming. What happens is this......
    i click on the link to open the streaming radio (in this case. http://www.929.com.au/player) what happens is, in the status bar of the player it says 'connecting to media' for about 30 seconds, then the status bar goes back to 'Ready'.

    I am running McAfee Security center as my virus protection and firewall, could this be the problem?? Help!!

    Or give you a choice of player ?
