Here are instructions forwarded to me by another member.

Here is a complete solution:

Once for all, install vlc on your machine if not already available.

To hear and record a CastUp object:
On your browser click the link which you would like to hear/record
You get the well known Media Player message
Select the second option
SAVE the (very short) file
Display it
Grab (cut for later pasting) one of the mms: URL's shown.

Start vlc
Click File
Check (select) HTTP/HTTPS/FTP/MMS
Paste the mms: URL stored above
Check Stream/Save button if you wish to record
Click Settings
Select Play Locally and/or File
Select ASF
Next to File check box, enter any .asf file name
Click OK and again OK
You are back in the vlc control widget
Start the player , enjoy the stream.

SUMMARY: use vlc pasting the mms: URL available in the something.asp file SAVED, not played, from the failing Windows Player screen.
