        We are very interested in your system specifications. It would be extremely helpful if you could follow the following steps and send us a list of these specs:

        1) Start->Run->dxdiag.exe
        2) Write down the DirectX version.
        2) Next, click on Display tab
        3) Send us all of the information listed in the Device, Drivers, and DirectX features pane as well as the DirectX version that you found on the System pane.

        Thanks in Advance,

            I had the same problem (no picture, only sound)

            Preferences (Ctrl-P) > Options > Video > UNCHeck allow Overlay

            the process above fixed my problem as well...thanks

                  Same problem....

                  I'm having the same problem. Except when I attempt to play any of the streams all it says is "ICY 200 OK". On 2 of the streams the mini-browser will open but besides that nothing happens... No playback... no nothing... I'm not sure if a port needs to be opened on my router or not. (although I can stream audio just fine) I would appreciate some help if at all possible. Thank You.

                    ^^ Did a re-install, everything works fine.

                      Are you playing these streams form the Internet TV section of the Media Library or by opeing the URL manually?

                        Well my situation is a little bit different, but basically the same. I was able to view Internet TV with video overlay on for the first month that I had 2.91 and then all of a sudden black screen. I changed the overlay and now it works again, but I don't understand why it would work at first and then not later.

                        PIII 866
                        256 SDR
                        Voodoo5 5500
                        DirectX Version 9.0a

                        Clicking on the stream list in media library.

                          I'm having the same problem, but I have Winamp 3, and it only happens if I have the default skin on, not the classic one.

                            I had the same problem. Here's what I did:
                            I un-installed Winamp 3 and installed Winamp 2.92 It worked fine after I did that.

                            I'd suggest you'd either downgrade to a lower release or re-install it.
