  1. I absolutely can not figure this out. I do not use a router, I am plugged directly into the internet. I was just using this software the other day to stream, and it was successful as I accessed it from a different computer half-way across town. Now suddenly, the connection tests fail every time. When I try to seek help through the software, it takes me to a page about routers but again, I'm not using a router. The firewall is allowing the Broadwave program through as well as the port in which I am using to stream. I have also tried to stream on a few different ports with no success. In just one day, I can't think of what changes could have been made on my computer that would prevent this software from streaming like it was. Thanks in advance! -David S.
  2. The thing is we have tried this every way possible it seems like. We have tried all of the different streaming formats offered with Broadwave; the one for WMP, iTunes (using with iTunes of course), realplayer. We even tried just the source URL then tried it as a XML playlist in all the different ways I just mentioned on a flash player, embedded WMP, iTunes, and the computer's WMP. All I can think of is that there is something on his computer (other than the firewall) that is blocking the stream of is unable to access the stream. We have tried all these different ways in both Internet Explorer and Firefox so it's not the Internet Program, it's the computer. I'm just not sure what settings to check and/or change to enable him to hear the stream.
  3. My friend's computer doesn't bring up any kind of box to save it, it just gives error messages that it can't connect.
  4. I have purchased Broadwave and have been using it for a few months now. I have been able to successfully listen to many different stream formats; asx, mp3, etc. from many different computers in different locations around the county (both laptops and desktops using different kinds of OS). My friend on the other hand just recently purchased a new laptop running windows 7 (if that's at all relavent). He is unable to connect using any of the URLs. I asked him to connect to a local radio station's website because they use the same method of streaming as I (mp3 file played by a flash player in a website). He was able to connect to their stream and hear it but not able to connect to mine with the flash tool, windows media player, iTunes or any other method supported by Broadwave. We tried to connect on his computer with both internet explorer and firefox. We also tried pasting the URL into his windows media player and that didn't work either. So we have come to the conclusion that it is the computer and not the interet programs (or operating system). The only thing I can think of is that his computer is firewalling the URLs because it doesn't trust them or something but how would we be able to get the URLs around the firewall? The streaming URL isn't a program that you can ask the firewall to allow past. What other computer setting of his could we change to enable him to connect? Thanks in advance for any and all help! -David.
