Windows Media Player Issue

I am trying to run a video feed from a website that opens up within Windows Media Player. On one of my computers it opens up just fine, but I have other computers that cannot seem to connect.

One of the problems:
The page opens fine and the web page is active and working in Media Player. However, when I click one of the links to view the feed, I get an error -

"0x748a5fd5" referenced memory at "0x022fc000". The memory could not be "written".

Tells me cancel to debug or ok to terminate, either one I press terminates the program. I've reinstalled Media Player, and have tried with and without administrator rights and neither of them have solved the problem.

My second computer:
Connects just fine, but when attempting to connect to the live feed, it looks like it will connect, and then refreshes itself and attempts to reconnect almost like it lost the connection and is trying to reestablish it.

All of these computers are on the same network and happen while the one that can view it is up and seeing it so the problem is definitely not the feed but within my computers. Any help on this would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Is this just one web site?

In reply to: Windows Media Player Issue

If so tell us what site it is so we can check.

I'm not sure how WMP is being used here. Your first sentence was "I am trying to run a video feed from a website that opens up within Windows Media Player". Does this mean that you are trying to view a streaming video feed from within a browser with the WMP plugin, or does it mean you are trying to run a web site from within WMP?

Tell us more about these computers. The red lettering above the post window explains what is needed. Also, tell us whether each computer's browser has the appropriate WMp plugin.

Yes, just one web site

However, telling you the web site would do you little good unless you are in the military or a contractor of the military and can access the SIPR network.

For how it is being used, it is a website that is being run from within WMP. The website opens within WMP just fine, it's when I click the live feed link that causes the error. Both computers have the required WMP plugin installed as near as I can tell because by disabling the plugin the website then fails to open within WMP.

Both are running Windows XP Professional
Both have Windows WMP 11
Both have Internet Explorer 7
One is a Dell D620 (Doesn't work)
One is a Panasonic Toughbook CF-74 (Works)

That's beyond my knowledge

Sorry. "a website that is being run from within WMP" is something I know little about.

Hopefully others here will help you.
