AS you can view it locally it suggest that the streaming service itself is working ok, it could be a firewall problem that is affecting connections from outside. This article from Microsoft provides allot of useful information for configuring firewalls for Windows media streaming.

Try playing the video on Windows Media Player on the braodcasting server. If the video plays successfully, it means that there are security constraints (perhaps a firewall?) on the server that is disallowing outgoing connections or these limitations are present on your computer.
