    Just a guess, but the logos on the screenshot are the WMP logo, which most likely mean they are in the .wmv format, you should check you have the windows media player plug in installed.

    @ Drakie

    I installed already WMP 11 but nothing happened. Maybe the site itself not supported FF to listen on those radio station in my country, which am not sure. Anyway never mind, but if you have any solution please give me a beep.

    @ Sir Monk

    Thanks for the link, Ill try it.


    Happy New Year to all!

    And then . . .

    aCres,

    I browsed to the sight today with IE: all worked well.
    Just for kicks, I went back to sight with FF: all worked well?!!!

    Furthermore, regardless of the WMP icon, when you click on the WMP icon, a dialog box opens and asks you to select which player you want to use. WMP is highlighted. But below is a box that allows you to browse and select another player. So I browsed to my RealPlayer directory and selected realplay.exe - which was then automatically entered into the dialog box as an option. I highlighted reaplayer.exe, clicked OK, and RP opened and played normally.

    My conclusion: the site was down, maybe for the holidays, but all seems to be working now. A little more snooping reveals that the few highlighted call letter links in the left column are simply links to the home page of those stations. The call letters that are not highlighted indicate what station you are listening to but there is no link to the station's homepage.

    I clicked on about a dozen of the WMP icons just to make sure: they all worked.

    Bottom line, it's not we - it's they! :mad:

    FF

    Just for openers, what version of FF do you run and did you add the NoScript addon? I do not think this is a NoScript issue but did you allow scripts for this site?

    Secondly, USUALLY - this message means that VBScript.dll is not PROPERLY installed, i.e., it's there but it needs to be coaxed.

    So, for the easiest, safest first attempt at fixing: go START>RUN and type in "regsvr32 VBScript" without the quotes. Hit ENTER and you should be good to go. (You may have to reboot - that I don't remember.)
