I seem to be in a state where I cannot stream online media since I downloaded IE7. Everything was fine in IE6.2 but since I upgraded to IE7, streaming online media has become such a pain. is there a number of plugins or security updates that I am missing I have tried everything I know until deleting cookies and unistalling and redownloading again but without any good result. can anybody help

I lost video streaming a few days ago. I have spent over 20 hours and 70$ (HP tech support 42 minute Phone Call), uninstalled & reistalled IE7,cleared caches, reset everything resetable, followed NUMEROUS techies intructions, etc.,etc....Still no fix. HP tech had me download firefox browser and I regained streaming for some websites but not all (e.g. msnbc.com works, cnn pipeline does not work). HP said maybe Windows got corrupted...but of course who wants to go thru all that is required prior to & after reinstalling Windows. I am still furious about this IE7 problem!!!!!

Which player are you using and what operating system: XP, 2003, or Vista

After I installed WMP11 on Vista I could not play anything when the control was embedded in the webpage, but it works if I copy the URL for the stream from the HTML source and open the location with the player itself. That's the only way I have been able to get around this problem.

I don't necessarily think it is strictly an IE7 problem. I'd be very interested to see how many people are experiencing this...

John,

I'm using MS XP Pro. I rolled back my Media Ctr to v10. Still no fix. I know a tiny bit about html code but don't know enough to do what you have done.

I have an HP Pavilion a1730n, AMD Athlon 64x2, 4GB RAM, 4Gb RamBoost, GeForce 8600 GTS & 256Mb VRAM, WVHP. I cannot view CNN or Yahoo video in either IE7 or FF2003. I'm experiencing COM Surrogate failures and Mobile Center failures. I've entered both apps in the DEP exception. The other strange issue with the Mobile Center and COM Surrogate failure alerts is that I can still synch my iPAQ 3955. I also cannot play the Real Flight G3.5 with the setup listed above; however, I can play it when I use the onboard GeForce 6150LE, but I still cannot view CNN video. Since I did not receive WVHP CDs with the system, and I can not reinstall WMP11 without restoring the system back to its factory configuration, I cannot do a Windows repair.

Any suggestions.

Thanks.

my streaming problem resurrected itself after MANY "fixes". No clue why...
