i am also having a problem with media player. i have a internet site that i use to watch tv from. it uses media player as part of IE. a few days ago my daughter did a hard reboot and now it will not play this site. the site works on my laptop just fine. i have used system restore several times and moved back over 1 month and nothing. when i try to play a channel all i get is ok and a black screen it buffers and everything like it is going to play. but just black screen. when i check error message it says this "
Windows Media Player cannot play the file because the specified protocol is not supported. If you typed a URL in the Open URL dialog box, try using a different transport protocol (for example, "http:" or "rtsp:")."
i have made sure all the network settings are checked and everything like this but still nothing. i can use the windows media center but i do not like this i want it to work through IE aGAIN.
I hope someone can help me so what do i do??
