    How play two wmv's in Win Media Player 11? (Need audio+ video TDF)

    I'm watching a video stream of the TDF in Windows Media Player but I also want to play the Eurosport audio, but for some reason in windows media player 11 I can't find how to play two files at once. Anyone know how? (It used to exist in WMP 9)

    I had the same trouble, which I never solved, but you can open the BBC stream inRealPlayer, I think.

    Try running the "old" windows media player (mplayer2) to play the audio stream and use the new one (wmplayer) for the video stream. Click Start->Run..., type "mplayer2", hit Enter. The click File->Open... and paste in the URL for the audio stream. Then launch the new windows media player as usual (or you can go Start->Run... and run wmplayer). The "old" and "new" media player are the same under the hood so this should work.

    wmplayer does not allow multiple instances, but mplayer2 does, so you could also run mplayer2 twice.
