Hey I have a problem I was trying to was trying to watch an mms:// stream earlier today I clicked it,It launched in Windows Media player and I got this message: Windows Media Player cannot play the file because the specified protocol is not supported.If you typed in a URL in the Open URL box,try using a diffrent transport protocol(for example,"http:" or "rtsp"). Does anyone know of anyway to fix this? I already did Tools>Options>Network>and clicked all of the protocols there to receive streaming media. If anyone knows how to fix this it would be appreciated. Thanks

Which Windows Media Player version do you use?

MMS is a proprietary application-layer protocol that was developed for earlier versions of Windows Media Services. You can use MMS to stream content to computers running Windows Media Player for Windows® XP or earlier. You can implement MMS through the WMS MMS Server Control Protocol plug-in in Windows Media Services Administrator. This plug-in is enabled by default.
