Yes, our Slingplayer for Web Plugin will no longer run under Windows XP. Take a look at this article for what is currently supported:
In the meantime, you may still be able to watch older Slingboxes (PRO-HD and older) using our older Slingplayer for Desktop app. Here is the download link:
Also, as a last resort, you can try using the Embedded Slingplayer, which we no longer support, but it may work:
Hope this helps!
Embedded player works in all browsers (IE, Firefox, Chrome), but is
annoying to watch as it apparently uses a low frame rate, i.e., motion is
very jerky. You can also use this through Facebook if for some reason you
would want to do that.
I once tried to Slingplayer 2.0 but it would not connect. Possibly there is
some way to make it work but not obvious.
I have set up Slingplayer on iPad and hope to use that with Roku streaming
stick. Would prefer to use Roku 2 box, but at
http://support.slingbox.com/KB/KB-2000582 the current Roku 2 box (model
4210) is not listed, so I have to assume that it will not work with
Slingplayer for iPad, unless you say otherwise.
Will Slingplayer for IPad work with current Roku 2 (model 4210)?
OK, Slingplayer 2.0 works over Internet under Vista, but only locally (same
network as Slingbox) under XP.
Running Setup Assistant on the local network, you get as far as trying to
login to slingbox.com, but then you just get a response screen that says
"Sling is improving our network" "try again later" or something to that
effect, and you are stuck, because you can't go any further with Setup
Can you just confirm that you are basically blocking all login activity
under XP, and so really the only solution for XP is embedded player?
Or is there some way to bypass this login process altogether--I personally
don't care about it anyway, as the program guide there is inaccurate and I
can get a much better one off the web--all I want is connection between
Slingplayer and Slingbox.
