    If you start using the My Trailers plugin but the content never streams you may have a problem with WMP.

    Have a look at the log and look for the mms:// reference
    copy the URL and then paste that into WMP and see if it plays.

    If you get this error...
    "Windows Media Player cannot play the file because the specified protocol is not supported. In the Open URL dialog, try opening the file usinga different transport protocol (for example, 'http:' or 'rtsp:')"

    Then rename the folder "%USERPROFILE%\local settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Media\10.0".

    That should fix it for you.
