    I have a machine running vista basic and internet explorer 8. I am able to
    open most internet pages. But when I click on a video the page that opens up
    states "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" I tried opening it with
    firefox and get the same. I tried opening it using my iPhone (Using the same
    wireless network) and the page loads. Ive tried disabling firewall and
    anti-virus, all to no avail. Please help!

    Do you have a publicly accessible URL for an example? Also, see if you can
    extract an actual URL that you could give to WMP. E.g. if you have that
    you could open media player stand alone and use its Ctrl-u command.

    I was able to extract the URL and attempt to play it in WMP but the video
    still would not play.

    Then I think that lets IE off the hook. ; ) I don't know what
    diagnostics WMP has. FWIW I would try using ProcMon first to see if there
    are any. I'd also try using Fiddler2 to see if there is anything obvious
    via the HTTP flow. Otherwise I think you would need to go to a full packet
    trace, such as WireShark to see what is going on in terms of requests and
    responses.


    Good luck
