    I can't play streaming videos on my MSN homepage, just shows loading but no video or audio. I'm using IE and Windows Media Player but no success. I've disabled my firewall and checked it against my laptop which plays the streaming videos just fine and has the same OS and software versions as my desktop. WMP on my desktop can play back all the various media files that I have on my HD, just not streaming videos from MSN (also from www.stupidvideos.com which is where some of the media content comes from on MSN).

    My setups on both computers:
    Win XP Pro, SP2
    IE 6.0.2900 SP2
    WMP 10

    All the options on the working laptop fore IE and WMP seem to be the same, no apparent differences.

    I've received two responses from MS and followed their suggestions but it didn't solve the problem.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.:(
