I occasionally try to access a video--

For Example, the Cindy Sheehan video:


I get the Windows Media Screen to pop up (even has the correct title for the video in the upper left corner), but get an error message box--

Windows Media Player cannot play the file. If the file is on another computer, verify that you are connected to the network. If you typed a path, verify that it is correct. If the problem persists, the server might not be available.

I click on the "More Information" button, and get:

C00D1197: Cannot play the file
Windows Media Player cannot play the file. You might encounter this error message for one of the following reasons:

Your computer is not connected to the local area network (LAN) or to the Internet. Connect to the network or Internet, and then try again.
The path to the file is not valid. If you typed a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) in the Open URL dialog box, verify that the file name is spelled correctly and that the path to the file is correct, and then try again. If you clicked a link on a Web page, the link might not be valid.
The server is not available (for example, the server is busy or not online). Try again later.
Some network protocols in the Player are not enabled. Enable all network protocols, and then try again.
The proxy server settings for the Player are not configured properly. Verify that your proxy settings are correct, and then try again.
To enable all network protocols
On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Network tab.
In the Streaming protocols area, select all the protocol check boxes.
To verify your proxy server settings
On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Network tab.
Verify your settings in the Streaming proxy settings area.

If you do not know what your proxy server settings should be, on the Network tab, select a protocol, click Configure, and then select Autodetect proxy settings or Use proxy settings of the Web browser (available for HTTP protocol only).
Error ID = 0xC00D1197, Condition ID = 0x00000000
Web Help


I can download and play the video IF, AND ONLY IF the website gives me the option of downloading.

I have tried installing the plugins--according to Firefox, they are all in there.

Needless to say (I'm on a DSL line), I'm connected to the "network"

Not sure the correct proxy settings for playing Windows Media.

Seems to happen with both on-line Real Media and Windows Media. Did notice that Quick Time runs fine.

Any suggestions??
