    Hi
    Whilst on the BBC homepage, i decided to check out the interview with a
    local football coach. I clicked on the link & my little WMP bar came up &
    another window saying!
    MMSYSTEM281 This file couldn't be played, check the name of the file or
    install a drive to support this!

    I know somethings on BBC only play in Real 1 player,(like live radio), but
    i've used the WMP on other pc's for interviews before & has been ok.

    What must i do so i can use my WMP?
    Thanks
    Gaz

    I belive that WMP has embedded code which prevents it from playing any
    file relating to Sheffield Wednesday. I understand this is called the
    'pig' code and is implemented to prevent the depression of the local
    population.
