Streaming music m3u/mp3 Files
I have a problem that I just can't seem to solve.
We have a resident music station based at our site and they want to be able to stream from their website to the College computers, using the 'listen now' option from thier front page. I can't seem to get this to work. Media Player opens up and sits there for a couple of minutes, then reports 'Windows Media Player cannot play the file because a network error occurred'.
The way I understand it is that the .m3u file just contains links to mp3 files.
I have tried all the various proxy settings from WMP 'Tools/Settings', changed Security Settings in IE, and trawled the internet for answers, but no go. I have tried it on a Windows 7 system with IE8 and a Windows XP system with IE7. It works OK on my home system.
Has anyone come across this before and been able to fix it?
Thanks in advance for any help.
