  • Manuel Clement and others - Introducing Sparkle

    Hmm, I got an error message, that's a first for a Channel 9 video:

    C00D11BB: Cannot play the file

    Windows Media Player cannot play the file because the specified protocol is either not supported by the Player or not supported by the server.

    If you encountered this error by clicking a link on a Web page, the link might not be valid.

    If you encountered this error by typing a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) in the Open URL dialog box, try opening the file by using a different transport protocol (for example, "http:" or "rtsp:").

    A list of protocols that are supported by the Player and the correct syntax follows:

    • mms://server/filename (for example, a file with a .wma, .wmv, .asf, or .mp3 extension)
    • http://server/filename
    • rtsp://server/filename
    • mms://server/sami.asf?SAMI=http://server/sami/sami_demo.smi (SAMI file)

    If Windows Media Player supports the protocol and you still cannot play the content, verify that the Player is configured to use all of its supported protocols.

    To configure protocol settings
    1. On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Network tab.
    2. In the Streaming protocols area, select all the protocol check boxes.

    Note Image Note

    • The supported protocols can be used only to stream digital media files. Windows Media Player cannot be used as a browser.
    Error ID = 0xC00D11BB, Condition ID = 0x00000000
  • Austin Donnelly - Touring around Cambridge England

    Ahhh, I think it was just last Easter that I puntted down that river with my family. It was during a trip to London when we took a day out at Cambridge.

    It's a really nice place, you like it Scoble?
