Playing Website WebCam with Media Player


This is the very first post from an ageing, non-techno!

I have today visited several travel Websites which have WebCam facilities to show off their region. However the clip doesn't play. I have tried several times on a number of different Websites.

When I right click, go the Error, the following message appears:

"Windows Media Player cannot play the file because a network error occurred. The server might not be available. Verify that you are connected to the network and that your proxy settings are correct."

Help, please! I have XP Home and have recently changed from Internet Explorer to Mozilla Firefox.

Many thanks.

Some general ideas:
- See if the same clip plays in Firefox. You might want to download and install an extension (=plugin in Firefox's terminology) that plays those clips.
- Verify that you can contact the same site with Internet Explorer (just for a test) and that the general proxy settings (Control Panel, Internet Options) are the same as in Firefox.
