    I like to listen to archived radio show from my local public radio station.
    They are posted on their website as direct links to .mp3 files. On one of
    my computers ( p4-XP ) delays the start of playback of the show for
    five or ten minutes, while another similar machine I have starts playing
    back the files immediately. I use Windows Media player. Is there a setting
    somewhere that will get .mp3 files to playback right away?
