In Windows Media Player, click the Tools menu tab and select Options... from the menu list. Alternatively, hold down the [ALT] key and press [T] and then click Options... from the pop-up menu.
Click the Performance tab. In the Network Buffering section, click the radio button next to Buffer. Type in the number of seconds to buffer (maximum is 60). Try 10 first as too much buffering uses more memory that could impact on WMP’s performance.
Click the Player menu tab. In the Player Settings section, make sure that the Connect to The Internet (Overrides Other Commands) option is enabled.
Click the Apply button and then OK to finish.
