Corrupt media player 10?

Back to Forum: Coffeehouse

    Whenever I try to connect to http or mms streams media player won't connect.  I've tried with streams that are 100% guaranteed working and with an open connection to the net.  It won't even connect to my local win2k3 media services Sad

    I can't re-install media player because i'm running mce 2005 which comes with media player 10 Sad  Any ideas how I could sort it, as I'm pretty sure it must be some sort of corruption causing the problem.

    You could try running 'sfc /scannow'

    You need your original cd and any service packs need applying after you have run it.

    C:\>sfc /?

    What about a firewall blocking a certain port to MP?

    Well i'll give that sfc a bash later on, meanwhile i'm 100% sure my firewall is all good, as I only have windows firewall enabled and theres one that blocks external access but thats a hardware box connected to my server.

    Also there's absolutely nothing to stop wmp communicating with the internal media services. It's been like this literally since the day I installed, the day before I had XP Pro and it worked Sad
