    when i click on a link for streaming video on windows media player 9 the video will never play and it buffers too long and sometimes stays at the same %. I noticed this has been happening since i got windows 9. I've tried streaming video with quicktime and realone and those work fine.

    I use Win Media 9 with no problems. But, lets face it is IS a beta version, so there will be bugs that need to be sorted out. Have you tried altering the options under "Performance" to set your connection speed and buffer amount?

    It may not help, but it's a start.

    I had the same prob. when I used 2800beta so I reinstalled and it worked fine.....then I reformated and installed and again same prob. with the 2800beta then I found a 2903version installed it and have not had one prob. infact it is really nice. full screen mode works diffrent and it has a couple more features!! so see if you can find it if not I may be able to find the installer;).

    I couldn't find it over there...

    And also, I got a video to finally play, in a separate window, and it plays REALLY SLOW.

    The audio is slow, and the video.

    I have the NORMAL setting for video speed, so its not that... any info???
