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."

Radios receive their signals from the airwaves. Since most homes are frame construction and have quite a few windows, radio signals tend to do well in first floor and higher settings. In high-rises, condos, and basements, where masonry construction is prevalent, signals are weaker or non-existent. If the radio has the ability to attach an antenna, you could use a dipole and fasten it up near or to the window to attempt to get better signal. This will or should help with the FM, but AM in that location is almost impossible. If the dipole doesn't work, there are outdoor antennas and there are some amplifier antennas that are available, but this increases cost.
There isn't an FM radio built into this unit. So maybe you are trying to get internet connected radio stations to play perhaps?
You can do a search for a program called a "radio Aggregator" which allows you to receive radio stations form all over the world. or you can just go to your favourite radio station an see if the stream live music over the web.
This is a radio station in England that I listen to via the internet from time to time, but most big radio stations stream these days.
vista doesn't come with 16 bit, it is 32 or 64 bit. use media center utility for watch live streaming. media player 11 is also capable for playing the live video. realplayer is the best tool for playing live videos
Do they have a website that provides a live stream? If so, you may have to have specific audio player software on your machine to receive the stream. It may be real player, it may be wmp, and it may be proprietary that you have to download from their site.
