    I'm trying to stream the first episode of 'The IT Crowd' from the Channel 4 website, having probs receiving the MMS stream!

    mms://edge.channel4.com/theitcrowd/episode1_c4web.wmv

    I have a Netgear DG834G Wireless 4 Port ADSL Router, with built-in firewall. I've set the firewall rules to include a custom service:

    Win Media, TCP/UDP, Port range: 1755-1763.

    I understand that MSS streams are on port 1755.

    My Windows Media Player (9) is set up to handle all streams on Multicast, UDP, TCP and HTTP (UDP on same port range as firewall, 1755-1763). My firewall is also set up to receive HTTP streams on 80.

    Zonealarm is set to accept all incoming/outgoing Windows Media traffic.

    No joy though, what am i doing wrong? :eek:

    I tried streaming that using Totem and I get an error saying that the server refused the connection. Is this something you have to register for?

    Nope, doesn't ask for a login or anything. Maybe server probs? But i can't stream any other Windows Media content either, so.

    Oh, javascript is enabled. Cookies are enabled.

    Any other ideas? Anyone? :blink

    Hi Arisen, I just started swatching it fine - although your link didn't work :) . Personally, I would rather wait till next eek and watch it in all it's widescreen non-pixelated glory anyway.

    PS. Chris Morris is the king!
