Cant view Streaming video

What generally happens is that I click on a link for some streaming content, the browser-based player opens (for example the CNN Player), there's a short burst of modem activity, the player says "Ready", and that's it - no further progress. It's not buffering, there's no downloading of anything, no error message, no sign of problems at all, other than a totally blank video panel. Correction!! Sometimes an advertisement will play perfectly, but just when I get excited and think the problem's solved, the ad ends, the video panel goes blank, and that obnoxious word "Ready" sits on the status line of the player.
I've found at least 20 people with the exact same problem, but NOT ONE of them has found a solution. I hope you don't mind me hitching a ride on your post - you know what they say: "Misery loves company".
I'm hoping that by replying to your question, instead of starting a new thread, we'll spark some interest with the movement, and get some genius to take a look at this problem. There MUST BE a simple answer - I hope.
Good luck to us both.

Looks like nobody's interesting in helping us with this problem, either that, or they're as stumped as we are. I guess we'll have to help ourselves - then maybe we'll be able to pass the solution on to the many others who have this problem.
Have either of you had any luck looking elsewhere for the answer? Or have you done anything differently that solved the problem?
I have had no luck at all so far - other than to totally screw up my computer a couple of times by fiddling about with all sorts of settings.
Keep in touch, and let's work together on this one.

It's just bizarre, one day it works, the next it doesn't. Even after reformatting, my pretty much brand new computer refuses to play streaming video. I figured it might be my drivers or something, but it's all up to date...

I think the reason they havent helped is because they see 5 comments and assume I have been helped. They go on how many comments each post has, working from zero up. Honestly i dont think I will ever get help now, because of that. Please, post your own problems in your own thread. No offence, I just dont think i will be getting help with the ammount of comments i have. Maybe ill learn something from the help you get on your post. If not ill post again, hopefully they wont delete it. Thank you.

Open media Player, click tools then options then performance, check video acceleration is on, check the buffer size is set to 20 seconds, click apply
Put the dot for connection speed in choose, select a speed well above your line speed, click apply
Click file types, click select all, click apply, close Media Player, try to view a stream like any of the videos from Yahoo Music for your location
