Windows 7: System Security Blocking Radio Stream?

System Security Blocking Radio Stream?

In the past I've had no problems listening live to local radio station: QFM96. Occasionally it wouldn't load/play, next day would work perfectly. In the past few days it won't load at all in Chrome however a "blocked plug in" notification could be allowed and the station would play just fine.

Emailing someone at the stations "help" function tells me their site doesn't like Chrome so I loaded Mozilla Firefox, station played perfectly for about an hour, I closed the tab. Few hours later Chrome OR Firefox won't play the station.

I believe I've allowed the site or rather its not blocked anywhere I can find in my security or firewall settings. Where else can I be checking?

The frustrating part is how the station will play one time but not another, the most recent installation of a new browser that doesn't allow the station same as Google's Chrome tells me it has to be something my machine. I do get a notice the connection is not secure but since I don't submit passwords etc that shouldn't be an issue---or is it?

Three other local stations play just fine though both browsers----I'm completely lost and could use some help.

Seems like in an older version of WMP you could access internet radio stations and play them through WMP. On my Win Seven machine I don't see that option. Is my memory faulty? Or did MS drop that ability? I have a networked speaker in another room distant from the computer and would like...
