What your seeing is a banner ad, you dont have to install anything to view
the link I gave.
If you want to see my problem with my Sirius account, just email me at
All streams play in windows media player, so get the latest windows
media player at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/11/default.aspx
If you are using Firefox and the stream is not working try IE(Internet
If the IE ONLY streams do not work please install Sopcast and TVU

I only get a video at http://channelsurfing.net/watch-tsn.html when I
use IE6. I see what you mean by the ad. On the latest versions of
Firefox, SeaMonkey, Safari for Windows, and Opera, only the ad shows
up. If you follow the ad link, it gives the information I gave you. It
does refer to another service and not the one you are interested in.
If you right click on Firefox and IE a menu does not show up. However
in Opera you can right click and select the source code for your url.
The object being used for the video being used is:
<OBJECT id="videoWin" WIDTH="480" HEIGHT="360"
STANDBY="Loading Microsoft Windows Media Player..."
<PARAM NAME="FileName" value="/asx/tsn1.asx">
<PARAM NAME="ShowControls" value="1">
<PARAM NAME="ShowDisplay" value="0">
<PARAM NAME="ShowStatusBar" value="1">
<PARAM NAME="AutoSize" value="0">
<PARAM NAME="EnableContextMenu" VALUE="false">
This is an ActiveX object for playing the /asx/tsn1.asx video. Most
browsers other than IE do not support ActiveX. No embed path or
regular object is given for these other players. Thus most recent
browsers other than IE will not show anything where the WMPshould be.
The page likely could be rewritten with modern object code that would
support Firefox and most other modern browsers, but that is something
the site owner would have to do. There have been unofficial ActiveX
plugins for Firefox and some other browsers for use with the WMP in
the past, but use of them has not been encourged by the browser owners
for security reasons, among others. Besides they are not needed if the
page is coded properly. The object code given above likely is why the
site owner suggests using IE if the page does not work.

Ok so here is what I am running
Windows Vista Home Premium
Internet Explorer 7
Windows Media Player 11
So here is what is happening, whenever I go to a website to watch streaming
All i get is the little white box with the red X
Whenever I go to my account in Sirius Satellite radio to listen online, it
wont play. In Firefox it says I am missing a plug in, but I have the latest
Windows Media Plugin and when I try to install it, nothing changes. Oh and it
wont recommend the "plugin" i need.
This last time it said "application/x-oleobject" whatever that means.
Does anyone have any ideas???
You have to install something to get this video service, and I am not
about to do that to just test it. I notice a link for instructions for
installing when Firefox is used, so it is meant to work on Firefox as
well as IE. You likely need to contact the company at the url you give
above to solve your problem unless you are lucky and someone who uses
this service has had the problem and has found out how to correct it
by experiment or by contacting the owner of the site. Who knows what
that program you must install to use this service does. There are many
possible reasons that there might be problems.
