    Hi.
    Follow the below methods:
    Method 1:
    I would suggest you to follow these steps:
    >>Open Windows media player.
    >>Click the "Library" drop-down arrow and "More Options," which brings up the Options window.
    >>Click the "Network" tab at the top of the window to look at your settings under "Streaming Proxy Settings."
    >>Select a protocol, such as "HTTP," if you do not know what the proxy server settings should be set to, and then click "Configure."
    >>Select "Use Proxy Settings of the Web Browser if you selected the "HTTP" protocol; otherwise, select "Autodetect Proxy Settings." Try connecting Windows Media Player again to the server.


    Method 2:
    Visit the below link for Fixit:
