Cant play streaming audio, live radio fm stations in vista

Hi,
I cant play any streaming audio in my windows vista no matter what i do. i probably tried everything that people out there recommend and nothing solves the problem. I have all updates on all programs, i tried different media players, not just WMP, but still nothing. I am desperate.
It starts buffering, and then i get the dialog box with the following statement: "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

Please, help me!!!
Thank you!

    hi wayneard, thanks for posting. i checked all of what you suggested and it is all OK. I don't know what could be causing this. are you a vista user? have you experienced any of the problems i described? I know more people who experience the same thing and are desperate too.

    hi wayneard,
    thanks. I haven't installed the Vista Service Pack 1, but I am doing so right now. I will see what happens when it is installed on my computer, and will let you know then.

    Thanks.

    Just checking...have you installed Vista's Service Pack 1?



    (BTW, no, I still use XP. I will continue to use it until Windows 7 comes out. I read waaaay too many problems with Vista.)

    Just checking, but in your browser Tools>Internet Options...>Advanced, are the boxes checked in the Multimedia section for Sounds, Video, and Animations to play in web pages?



    Also in WMP, Tools>Options>Network are all the boxes checked under Streaming Protocols except for the Use Ports box?



    Those are a couple things that come to mind. Hope it helps.

How to fix sound problems in HP Elitebook 8460P


Hi Rolf. Hoping I can help you here. Can you help me understand the situation a bit more?

Does the same audio behaviour happen with headphones or external speakers plugged in?

Also, this model and several other notebook models suffer from sound driver issues that result in distorted audio output such as popping noises or hissing. This occurs with all types of audio sources including CDs, DVDs, Blu-Ray discs, and Internet streaming sites.

Have you also updated the chipset drivers? Even if BIOS and audio drivers are updated they both may rely on chipset drivers as well.

Is the operating system Windows 7 64bit or 32bit?

HP recommends doing a system restore to original factory setup :-(

Xvid for windows vista


I've spent a lot of time this weekend finally setting up Windows Vista Media Center, and I suddenly realised that Vista Media Center won't play Xvid and Avi files even if Windows Media Player will. If you want to add support for third party codecs including Xvid and Avi files in Vista Media Center then you need to install the Media Control Plugin For Windows Vista Media Center.
This plugin allows Windows Vista Media Center to utilize te FFDShow decoder, which needs to be installed seperately ((FFDShow rev 1108 recommended: download the last version from http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffdshow-tryout)). FFDShow adds support to Vista for MPEG-4 video formats like DivX, Xvid, H.264 and also alllows MP3, AAC, Dolby AC3, and OGG Vorbis audio files to be played back.
The Media Control Plugin for Windows Vista MCE also adds the following additional features:
  • Switching embedded audio and subtitles streams while playing a video: works with AVI, OGM, MKV
  • Switching between external subtitle files (.SRT, .SUB)
  • Switching between FFDShow presets (audio & video)
  • Setting and loading bookmarks inside a video with visualization of the pictures of the saved bookmarks
  • Real fastforward (and rewind) exactly like in the TV module (with 3 different speeds)
  • Switching and setting post-processing filters in FFDShow (video filters only)
  • Separate application to assign keyboard/remote control shortcuts to the commands and the MCML pages of the plugin.
  • Full remote control support (6 buttons are mapped by default, but this can be changed)
  • Default mapping (works in full screen while watching a video, except the blue button that is always caught) :
    • Fast forward / rewind buttons
    • Blue button : loads the startup page of the plugin
    • Red button : switches audio stream
    • Green button : switches subtitle stream
    • Yellow button : switches subtitle file

Video streaming problem


Since it is only itv that seems to be having problems and checking the site myself where it reported that it was having problems instead of playing the selected clip, it is just going to be a matter of time until they resolve the issues. I don't know if it a hardware failure at their end or if they are having load problems, but chances are it is not an issue with your system.
