Chapter TWO (continued) MEDIA PLAYER TECHNOLOGIES — WMP Trial

MEDIA PLAYER TECHNOLOGIES
For a more detailed analysis of the Windows Media Player (WMP) for Internet Radio, please refer to my original post on that topic.  Below is a report of a trial with WMP on some specific media types.
As a trial run, I accessed Internet radio station Seaford Surf Radio that offers compatibility with 3 players via an in –site click through:  WINamp, Windows Media Player (WMP), and Real Player.  This trial is designed to test and compare  WMP,  and a file was downloaded to my PC with a “listen-2.m3u file name”.  I then attempted to run this file and received this error message via the player:
“Windows Media Player cannot play the file. One or more codecs required to play the file could not be found.”
The file did open up and run on a second player known as the VLC player, but offered very little interactivity or metadata capability.
Switching back to the Real Player, the file once again downloaded properly and I was able to listen to the SSR stream with no difficulties.
At this time, I don’t know the solution to this issue, so more experimentation and research will be required, and hoefully I can post more useful information in a future blog post.
