    Hi there. This isn't actually my first post, I posted before as TomasKay (I think!) but I've got a little problem with Media Player 10 that isn't so bad but it's been bugging me for a while and I need to sort it. Basically, when there is an embedded Media Player element in a webpage (the kind where controls aren't immediately available), the media file will usually connect to network, buffer and then say "Ready", but not play. There's no error message or anything like that, and when I right-click and try to play from the menu, it just does the same thing. Added to that, I have never been able to play WMA files that have a DRM (not that it matters so much, as I have an iPod, but still) and lately Media Player has refused to play anything that requires a licence... I'm on Windows XP SP2, if you need anymore details, ask and I'll find out. Thanks for your time everyone :)
