Windows 7: WMP Problem with Playlists on Streaming Video

WMP Problem with Playlists on Streaming Video

I have an odd problem. I have my Inlaws visiting and they want to watch the news back home but when I go to click on the Video I can only get full controls in IE on my Vista x64 Partition. When I go to the news I get 1 Orange Button and when I click on it it brings up a new window with full controls and a play list of the days Headlines. (see attached Pics) In my Win 7 x64 partition (both in FF and IE8) I get just a Pop up video of just a 56k Stream or 300k Stream choice. This also happens in FF in Vista. Was there something I'm missing? I'm not very fluent in WMP 11 or 12. Help would great since I'm getting ready to move my OS fully once RTM hits.
