Since you tried using IE I assume you're browsing from a windows machine, so:

You could try the dsmyth filters with the "video lan client" player,
which works well for me - even over a wireless link.  That is apart
from the few recordings that have no audio when streamed, which I need
to investigate further.

The following link describes how to set it up.


Hope this helps.
