How can I listen to radio broadcasts on the internet? I've tried but
get the cannot create direct show player messages. Are you aware of
this? How should I correct problems of listening or watching videos? I have downloaded windows media player 10, but it doesn't help.
Is it something to do with directx?
I'm not an expert in this field.

If you have Media Player 10 you have SP2 so also have the latest Direct X

Click this link and select any of the dial up or broadband buttons and it should start media player

Click this link if you are US located

Click this link if you are UK located

Select any of the videos and it should launch an online player

If you get winamp, choose the free version

You can listen to a number of radio stations from shoutcast

If you install winamp it will probably set itself as the default player, you can change this back by opening media player then pressing tools then options then file types and selecting the types you want media player to open, press apply after making changes

Hey thanks Keith. I'm now listening to the radio broadcasts.

It's great to have someplace to go to get an answer. I'm in

another country, so few people speak English here.

If you put internet radio stations into your search engine you should find a few more.

This is one where you can choose your country
