      Re: Sky Player how long does it take to load

      Normally a few seconds for me, when I tried it.

      30 minutes is way too long. Try uninstalling and reinstalling perhaps?

      Tried that and still not working. then found out that I didn't have wmp 11 so downloaded that and still not working and realised that there seems to be a problem with WMP 11.

      Re: Sky Player how long does it take to load

      Have you got BBC iPlayer installed? If so try a repair of that. The iPlayer and Sky Player both use Kontiki. Maybe it has something to do with Kontiki and hence won't open. I had a similar problem with iPlayer, having uninstalling the Sky Player.

      Re: Sky Player how long does it take to load

      what about 40D and aols vod service ?
      do you have that? thats the same backend as sky player and iplayer...kontiki

      I had a similar problem. whenever either of the companies releases a new version of their software I have found that the other pieces of software seem to break. now I just re-install all 3 whenever theres a new version of either of them.

      I had a similar problem, and discovered what my problem was, my kontiki was disabled, I found out by going into administrative tools and services, and enabled it, and its worked perfectly since. Have you tried checking that to see if it has been disabled?
