    Hey All

    Ok I have done EVERYTHING i can possibly find on the net to fix this problem. I am using Firefox 2.0.0.11, Netscape, Safari and IE 7 NONE of them will play any Windows Media Streaming Content. I have installed plugin after plugin that are suppose to fix these problems but no luck at all.

    For example, when I go to TSN.ca and click on any of their videos I get an error that says

    "Firefox users need to install the following ActiveX compatibility plug-in:
    Windows Media Player ActveX plug-in
    To begin the installation, you may need to add our site to your list of trusted sites."

    So I go ahead and install it and it still dosent work.

    Then I try to listen to my Sirius Satellite Radio online, and I can push the play button and it just sits there says I am missing a application/x-oleobject

    I have no idea what the problem is, I can listen/watch my Windows Media Player 11 for DVD's and Cd's no problem, just will not work with streaming video. Anybody have any other suggestions??

    Thanks

    Did you have any earlier codecs or plugins which might conflict with Vista before you upgraded?
    Is WMV files associated with the correct program?
    Have you tried VLC Media Player from http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ ?
