At the BBC site I can play their news videos just fine if, at the BBC site, I instruct the site to use RealPlayer. If I tell it to use WMP, no video plays. I have no trouble playing videos from MSNBC or my own videos I've saved to my HD.
Now just recently I did a repair install of Windows. Before that time I ws using WMP 10 and the BBC videos played just fine. I got WMP 11 because the Repair install left me with WMP 9 (that was on my original XP CD) so 10 was gone. When I went to get WMP 10, MS had put out the WMP 11 Beta so I just downloaded that.
WMP 11 has all the File Types in its list checked.
Do you think WMP omitted the codec needed for BBC news videos? (I've no idea if they did or if a particular codec is needed for BBC news videos.)
WMP 10 used to play the BBC videos just fine.
What's going on? What can I do? (Yes, I can just use Real Player but wouldn't you thiink WMP 11 should play the BBC videos when WMP did?)
