    My windows media player 9 won't play wma or asx or asf files.
    It will play music on my pc but wont play any video from from links on a web site and wont connect to any radio stations.
    I've updated and told it to detect proxy settings. I'm on cable.

    Hiya and welcome

    Are you using a firewall, and also which version of Windows are you running?

    Can you play those types of clips from the pc? For example, rightclick on these files, choose Save target As, and save to your pc. Then, doubleclick to play them.


    Not brilliant clips, but just see if they can be played.
