Angry how to watch movie trailers with xp

I have just gone onto broadband with tiscali and noticed that I should be able to watch movie trailers. when I click on 'view movie' a message comes up on the bottom left of the screen saying ' error on page'. It will not let me watch any movies ( I have already disabled pop up blocker) and this has made no difference. Can any one please help me with this problem. Thank you

It is a problem with the website. Try something like launch.yahoo.com for example.

Yeah, probably a problem with the website - couldn't be that you don't have Quicktime becuase it would say - have you tried other Trailer sites? Tried http://www.apple.com/trailers/ - thats where practically all trailers are. You can find most anything on it even though it is Apple based.

Yeah - that is really wierd! And the problem with Broadband Hosts is that unless they have a month gaurentee you have to stay with them for about a year? Otherwise you have to pay for that Year - so either way you give them their money back! Sneaky buggers. Not that I'm complaining about Freeserve, best there is if you ask me.

You should really bring this up with them in a harsh way - they should give you an answer or a website where you can test it. Otherwise something is very wrong.

Got any kinks in your cable? How far do you live from your Router? How long is your cable from the Telephone to the Modem?

I have sent them various complaints about this
but they just do not answer, dose any one out there know where I can check the actual connection speed of broadband. Its reads 589.8Kb ps ADSL which I believe should be fast. Are you saying freeserve is the best. Thanks so far for all your help.

I wouldn't say Freeserve are the best - but apparently they are, and as far as I know they are. They're never had any problems.

Have you tried the phone? That would do it, if they have a service call?

This really sounds like a fault on Tiscalli's part. You need to contact them over the phone as emails tend not to work

They hopefully then will be able to find the problem for you and fix it.

I have received a reply from Tiscali and they say to view movie trailers in the web browser, please install the necessry software (plugins) for each type of multimedia application, and suggest I contact my computetr supplier. What a lot of rubbish - as pluggins are usually free and you get a link to download and install them if you try to view a web page. I use other sites no problems viewing --- Tiscali Rubbish

You Can Download Full Movies For Free Using A Program Called Limewire, avaliable from www.limewire.com, this is an excelent program, because you can download practically anything. if you dont want the movies, you can also download the trailers for free.

Hope it helps, Pc Pip Uk

Cool

Thanks very much I will try this site as I am still having problems viewing film trailers, and no one seems to be able to answer the question, where are you whiz kids. I use windows xp 512mb broadband 589Kbps I have realplayer v.10, latest quicktime, and windows media player9 that does not seem to be the problem, it is realplayer and quicktime - so annoying
