i just got this through when loading the radio station:


Windows Media Player cannot play the file because the specified protocol is not supported. If you typed a URL in the Open URL dialog box, try using a different transport protocol (for example, "http:" or "rtsp:").


does anyone have any ideas on how to get through this problem?

best way to contact me is through my email address: Apocolyptic_Demise@hotmail.com

When you update the media player from 9 to 10 ,from the microsoft website there should be another download beside it .Download that one too and the problem should be fixed.I had the same problem it took me a week to figure it out.I hope this is helpful for you unfortunately I can't remember the name of the other download but it should be easy to find.

You should not be connecting through those protocols. The correct protocol is icyx://

You need WMP10 & the Orban plugin. A reboot is required.
