I would just try a differnet media player, like RealPlayer 10, WinAmp 5.04, QuickTime 6.5.1, or you might even try Windows Media Player 10 (beta). You can find everything exect WMP 10 at download.com.

This happened to me one time with a Windows ME system. I used System Restore and that fixed whatever was broken. Windows XP also has System Restore. Have you tried that?

sounds like a streaming issue with WMP.

Try Media Player Classic and see if that will play it. If so it's an issue within WMP itself and more importantly the way its streaming files. That or the website is down.
