Unhappy Alpha tags not visible...why?

I have been trying to veiw feeds with alpha tags such as the NH Strafford County feed and several others claiming to have alpha tags, I use either the web player or wmp but have not seen any alpha tags. Can someone please put me in my place and tell me what to do. I have searched these threads for almost 2 hours with no luck.

Thank you for your time.

Hi There:

Neither ther web player or Windows Media Player is capable of receiving alpha tags. You will need to use something like WinAmp, Real Player etc. in order to see the tags.

Hope this helps!

Not all feeds provide alpha tags.

I had the same problem. Obviously I'm not alone, perhaps putting a small note to this effect on the Screen Tip that shows up when you hover the pointer over the "tag icon" would be helpful.

Thanks for the info.

iTunes also shows the tags & I think VLC does as well.

The Java web player displays tags.

I would go with WinAmp or iTuns as both are solid players.
