Two basic tips to start with

1. If it doesn't stream? Open up your Windows media player, your real player, or your AOL media player, then use that to open up the the URL (the link to the mutterings).

2. If that doesn't work? Just download the file and then play it from the download.

Please do ask questions below and then both the techies and fellow MoneySavers will try and help you.
Could you do with a Money Makeover?

    Would it be handy to include a link to download it on here? The only way I could seem to get the file was to preview a post on here with the link on it. I couldn't get it to play in Quicktime, Windows Media Player or Real Player, they all said there was problems with the server.....

    This week's one is here (EDIT: old file - 23 Feb)

    File size is much better. Even the dial-up one sounds ok (24Kbps)

    Money Muttering 23rd February 05

    Clicked on the “Dial Up” link – Windows Media Player opened – Martin muttered - Great.


    Money Muttering 2nd March 05

    Have not received email to date [5th March]. Clicked on “Money Tips” link/Email “More” link and “Dial Up” link - Windows Media Player opened – Martin muted – Windows Media Player error code generated – Followed your instructions, opened file using URL – Same error code – Downloaded file – Played download – Martin muttered again. :)

    Is there a problem with this week’s Money Muttering or is the above a common occurrence when trying to play this type of file from the link?

    I've never been able to simply stream the mutterings by clicking the link and then listening to it directly. After just a few seconds Windows media player always says it has "reached the end of the file" and stops playback. I have to download it (which doesn't take long on broadband admittedly) but is this just me, or is this a problem with the MSE server(s)?

    N.L.P. Martin, great step forward, most people are visual but so many are auditory well done for spotting this, my daughter listened for the first time and sat through it all.
