HI all .. I have a pocket pc .. ipaq rx 1950 and when I try to listen to a radio station online, it says this ..

The file cannot be opened.  Either it is not signed with a trusted certificate,  or one of it's components cannot be found.  You might need to reinstall or restore this file.

I have windows media player but it will not play .. I downloaded another player (TCMP) and that worked for a while but I guess the certificate expired?  I have no idea why it won't play now. 

The file extension that trys to open is .pls.

If anyone could help me with this, I would really appreciate it.

Thank you.

Hello... After our chat in the #geekzone channel I asked around, and Windows Media Player Mobile doesn't seem to support .wax files, which is the format used by this specific radio for streaming.

Perhaps they have used a different format before and changed since?

Some additional information. Someone pointed out that .wax is actually in the list of supported formats, but the problem with this particular playlist is that none of the entries are playable with Windows Media Player mobile.

Apparently this particular playlist yields an MP3 HTTP stream. They are using an Icecast server. If this were WMS, the stream would probably contain enough metadata to be playable on Windows Mobile.
