I spoke with tech support for the company that supplies the streaming media.
1. Their streaming media is "proprietary".
2. Their software is not intended to be compatible with Vista.
3. None of their basic tech support suggestions helped. They referred me to the "geek squad". ARGH!
clear cache; disable AV software; turn off firewall; bypass router / connect directly to cable modem
Using PC2, [ which fails to play the media I want to watch ] I went to Jump TV's website, http://www.jumptv.com/. I clicked on "international TV". There, I am able to view & hear Hawaii IPTV 's "now playing" media.
BUT, from jumptv, to international TV to talfazat.com, the page opens but the player does play media. It sits there, notifying me that it is "connecting". ARGH!!!
I posted the problem at AnAndtech's forum.
"Mr Chad" referred me to the following.
My reply is between the rows of *s.
Due to recent enhancements to the Adobe Flash Player installers, you can now remove the player only by using the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller.
Adobe KB 14157
I have not tried the fix on my Vista Ultimate SP1 system, but the Win XP Pro SP2 boxes on which connection failed are now connecting.
First, I uninstalled AFP, per your link. Then, rebooted and installed AFP 10 from a download of AFP 10. Then, I opened IE 7 and logged in. The JumpTV media player opened and notified me that I needed to "install flash".
After verifying AFP 10's presence in "add / remove program", I again uninstalled AFT 10; rebooted; logged into site. When the JumpTV media player opened, I clicked on "install flash". Still no luck.
At the bottom of the JumpTV media player, I had noticed an advisory that the JumpTV media player was connecting to ad.doubleclick. . . ..
I use a modified hosts file from mvps.org . I replaced the modified hosts file with the original hosts file, rebooted [ why not? ] and it connected.
I don't know if this was a waltz, tango or foxtrot, but the two step process solved my problem.
I hope Mr Chad's link helps others having problems installing AFP 10.
Hopefully Adobe will add something to AFP 10, so that when the user tries to uninstall AFP 10 via "add / remove programs" in XP or "programs and features" in Vista, the user will be instructed to use the AFP uninstaller.
