Actually the specific error that I get seems to point to some kind of error on the server end.
Why do I get error C00D11B1 when I try to stream content?
Error message: "Windows Media Player cannot play the file."
Windows Media Player can't open the file on the streaming media server. Review the content provider's system requirements to make sure that your computer is configured correctly for streaming. If it is configured correctly, try to determine where the problem resides by doing the following:
• The file may be temporarily unavailable. For example, the streaming media server can't accept new Player connections or it can't stream the file to you because not enough bandwidth is available for all Player connections. Try to play the file again later.
• The file may be missing. Try playing another file on the content provider's Web site. If you can stream other files from the Web site, notify the content provider.
• The streaming media server may not be configured correctly. If you can't steam any files from the Web site, try playing files on another content provider's Web site (such as WindowsMedia.com Media Guide). If you can stream files from other Web sites, notify the content provider.
