    I cannot play streaming video with my WMP 9.0

    Hello everybody

    I cannot play streaming video with my WMP 9.0, if streaming server uses udp protocol for transmit (for example : mmsu://

    There is this error occurs
    " Windows Media Player cannot play the file. A network firewall may be preventing the Player from opening the file by using the UDP transport protocol. To play this file, try opening the file without specifying UDP."

    I have turned my firewall off, but I still cannot play this file.
    When I try open some videos from mms:// or mmst:// (it is microsoft media server using tcp protocol), everthing is OK.

    I don't known what I can do.
    Can anybody help me, please?

    Best regards.
