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.

I have a nexxtech am/fm/radio reciever model 1219178.I cant get any radio stations am or fm.was working fine in living room. now by window in basement.what can I do to get stations again?


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.

How to turn radio on dell laptop?


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.

I am using a Denon internet radio on LAN (pirelli modem), works fine, but I cannot receive BBC. BBC on the PC works fine. Could that be a router problem? Any ports or adjustments I have to consider? If so,...


I have the same problems with my Pirelli modem in Austria (A1) trying to play BBC radio stations. I connected my Denon CEOL RCD-N7 to a different network (SilverServer in Austria) and it played the BBC radio stations swimmingly (not sure what modem was used btw)... I have another internet radio at home (Reciva based) and surprisingly, that one plays the BBC stations fine using the WMA streams.
I do have a workaround now for the Denon system: I have added the following URLs (AAC streams) to "My Added Stations" on RadioDenon.com and they work like a charm:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/listen/live/r1_aaclca.pls
http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/listen/live/r2_aaclca.pls
http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/listen/live/r3_aaclca.pls
http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/listen/live/r4_aaclca.pls
http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/listen/live/r4x_aaclca.pls

Any suggestions as to what the issue might be with the Pirelli modem are welcome!

-- Hope this helps.

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.
