Hello. I am not a computer expert. I have a question about streaming media (Iguess that is what its called).
Some Video files play on my computer just fine. But, when I try to download a file from King5.com or KREM.com (a couple of local TV stations) the loading icon goes around and around but nothing plays. Sometimes a still picture will show up on their player and a "Ready" logo in the box. But when I click play, again, nothing happens. I have Windows XP, WMP 11 (by the way I tried taking WMP 11 off and going back to WMP 10 but still they won't play. Any suggestions?
