    ESPN Web TV does not work with Vista

    I have tried to watch video clip from espn.com and CBS.com with Vista.
    I only got sounds, no video. I clicked on help and they tell I need
    Window Media player 10 (or 11 I forgot), or Real Player. Gruhmm, I
    should have the latest Media Player in the newly OS Vista bundle but
    how come it doesn't work. What version of Media Player in Vista. I
    can't find the "about" drop down in Vista Media Player.

    I am about to install Real Player. But I don't want it to be the
    default player.

    Vista has Media Player 11 included.

    Not sure. But, during beta testing several users reported that
    this worked; open an elevated command prompt (CMD run as administrator)

    copy and paste this-

    netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled

    Then hit enter. You'll get an "OK" verifying it was set.

    If that doesn't work set it back with this-

    netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal

    Are using a router? Just curious.

    Thanks for your suggestion but I don't understand what to do yet. Cut
    and paste from where to where? I am not an IT expert.

    Yes I am using a router. Same one as the other 3 PCs that still use XP
    and none of them has this problem whatsoever.

    You can actually do this a few ways. We'll do it the old fashioned
    way.

    Type "CMD" in Start Menu's search box. You'll see one result.
    Right click it, select "Run as Administrator"

    Copy and paste this line below:

    netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled

    Hit enter. You'll get an "Ok".
    Close the CMD window.

    See if that helps you.

    Set global command failed on IPv4 The requested operation requires
    elevation.

    Thanks Michael. I didn't have to do anything. It works now. Either
    because of the new GMA graphic driver update from Intel, or the
    problem was fixed by MS or by the websites.
