I have noticed that WMP is connecting after a while when using squid http proxy.
I have tested Absolute Classic Rock radio

Windows Media Player, as far as I know, for WMV is using it's own
filters and it might
not use the "File Source (URL)" DirectShow Filter.

On my machine (XPSP3/WMP11) both Vorbis stream
(http://ogg2.as34763.net/vc160.ogg) and the
MP3 Stream (http://mp3-vc-128.as34763.net/) had problems connecting to
Absolute Classic Rock website.

I think this is a problem with "File source (URL)" filter and the
squid http proxy.
