    I'm running Windows Vista and I can't seem to watching any streaming videos in either Windows Media Player or Veoh. Windows Media simply freezes up on a white screen with no information as to what it's doing, and Veoh says "Sorry, your internet connection could not be detected." Obviously, as I'm typing and posting on my computer right now, the internet is connected. I've checked Windows Firewall and both programs are allowed through.

    Any suggestions?

    I don't know much about Vista, but I heard the security system on Vista is much more sophisticated and complicated compare to XP's that one thing you set wrong can prevent you from accessing certain things. How about asking the same question in the Windows Vista section? It may well be some security setting that's preventing you from reciving those steram videos.
