Windows 7: Http protocol support on WMP 11 and above

Http protocol support on WMP 11 and above

Hi ,
We are using windows video player version 11 in windows 7 now.We were using windows xp and wmp 10. we were using mms protocol to display video contents and it was working fine. In WMP 11 and above MMS is not supported, so we tried to use HTTP protocol for displaying videos in our application. We are sending this URL through a streaming server which is having asxgn http extension.

our current URL would be http://hostname:80/asxgen/filelocation. When we tried to play this file we are getting the following error mesasge. (The same URL is working fine on Windows 10 player.)

"Windows Media player cannot find the file. If you are trying to play,burn,or sync an item that is in your library,the item might point to a file that has been moved,renamed or deleted.".

Can anyone help me to resolve this issue.
