    Hi,
    It would great if someone could solve this little problem.
    When I go to the site http://www.snowfallradio.com/ and click on the LISTEN link, Windows Media Player will not start.
    WMP will work if I select it from the program list.
    Thanks.
    John.

    I just tried it in Internet Explorer with the required Windows Media ActiveX Control enabled and I get no response on that website as regards media playback. My Windows Media ActiveX Control works fine on other multimedia websites which have Windows Media content, so that almost certainly means there's a problem with Snowfall Radio at their end.

    Tried to find the solution myself but gave up!
    Submitted a question to the Microsoft answers community and the suggestion was to try:
    "Open the Windows Media Player Settings troubleshooter by clicking the Start button and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type troubleshooter and then click Troubleshooting. Click View all and then click Windows Media Player Settings."
    Ran it, it fixed something and now the http://www.snowfallradio.com/ link opens perfectly!
