I recently upgraded to Windows 7 (Home Premium). Along with it came Windows Media Player version 12.
Originally I was able to tune in to certain Internet Radio Stations with XP (or below all the way down to Win98SE etc.). But to my surprise I am not able to tune in these certain stations with my Win 7 and WMP12. I also tried with VLC and Winamp but haven't been able to tune in to these same stations which gives me an error message Windows Media Player error C00D1198
It says to verify that the proxy server settings are correct I went to the Options clicked on the browser and Streaming proxy settings and placed both on Autodetect and still nothing. I don't know if this has to do with Win 7 (or AV proxy settings I use Norton Internet Security) I temporarily disabled the latter and still nothing. Please tell me what else do I have to do. I know the stations are up and running because I can easily tune in using XP or even Win 98SE so is there anything I overlooked??

This is probably a firewall setting that is preventing access to the server. Try disabling your firewall(s) to test.

a year or so ago I had a customer who was affected by a similar problem following an automatic windows update. Try as I might I couldn't clear it. As Steve says, it appeared to be a proxy / firewall issue but I never managed to work out exactly what
In the end we found a way round it by accessing the radio stations through this website

not a perfect answer, may it may enable you to play the stations
