I tried it in Firefox 3 and had to install the Windows Media Player plugin, but then I got just a black screen.
According to the help page here: http://www.earthcam.com/site/player_help.php I need the latest Flash player...I've already got it and even reinstalling it I failed to get it to work in Firefox.
I then tried in IE8. It worked fine and I have Security Center 9 so it can't be McAfee that's doing it, more likely a combination of non-default browser settings and McAfee is the icing on the cake...maybe?
Perhaps it's just a question of allowing the right thing through the firewall, but what?
Open Security Center by double-clicking the taskbar icon.
Click Advanced Menu (bottom left)
Click Configure (left)
Click Internet & Network (top left)
Click Advanced (right)
Click Program Permissions (left)
Check for anything blocked ot one way access only. You can also add programs there.
Yea - that's exactly my problem. I don't think Mcafee is specifically blocking it - but there is obviously a component of the various parts - that needs enabling.
I have tried the programs and adding any that I can think of - so far to no avail - I'll have a look at IE settings and see if I can find anything in there
All I can think of offhand would be add Windows Media Player, Adobe Flash Player and Adobe Shockwave Player if installed.
I'll ask around.
Thanks - Already added those - to no avail.
Be grateful if you can ask around.
I work from home so I can't physically ask anyone, but I have posted in the Technicians area so hopefully someone will come along soon.
The consensus is that it is most likely a Windows Media Player issue.We all can watch it without any problem.
Have you set the firewall to lockdown by any chance?
Nope - firewall is not in lockdown - WMP is set to allow both ways I'll try a re-installl of media player - see if that works
I have narrowed it down a little.
That particular website uses .ASX files to launch WMP.
Now I just need to find out what (if anything) WMP launches in addition to the wmp.exe to run this type of file extension.
