I have Snug tv installed on my pc at home, and should be able to watch tv from my tuner, anywhere. I can log on and watch tv through Firefox, on my pc, but if I try to watch it on my pc at work, I get the message,'Windows Media Player cannot play the file because the required video codec is not installed on your computer'. Snugtv doesn't actually open up Windows media player, so how can I find what codec it's after, and resolve the problem. My pc at home is running Vista, but the one at work, is XP.

It looks like a browser function, so a stand-alone media player isn't going to help.

The more likely scenario is that your employer doesn't want you to watch TV at work so they've blocked streaming video resulting in a flakey error message.

Unless this is a family owned business, I would suggest not taking this issue to the IT department in this economy.

I would definitely check if the business is well rated on the stock market first... :D

No it's not blocked, we are allowed to go on at lunchtime. It is a browser issue, but I don't know how to resolve it.
