    Using WINXP
    NUSCast does NOT support Windows Media Player Beta version and 9 series.
    Thus the need to downgrade...
    Funnily some ppl can play with WMP 9 but i see the error as "interface not registered" What does that mean???

    no idea on the err msg.

    try reinstalling WMP9 and do a windowsupdate to get the latest patches

    Look for a software called Window Media Player Classic in google... it is a small file less than 1mb.

    Should be able to solve all your problem.

    Thanks for all your help!!
    Apparently the RUN program suppose to rollback to my WMP8 originally in my XP. However when i try to open WMP it says that the installation is incomplete. Thus i Need WMP 8... the window media player classic apparently is for WMP 6 i think which doesnt work... :S

    Windows have this funny thing that you cannot downgrade.. it checks that I have "parts of WMP 8" and says that i have the later WMP version thsu cannot install WMP 7.1 or any before 8...

    Funny how they force you to use their software...

    It should work, give it a try.. It is WMP 6, the file is a stand alone. doesn't need to install..
