Yes you can, go to My computer and type the address of your server
ftp://username:password@192.168.x.x
and then browse it within the explorer, double click play like a local file.

i get this message from WMP
0xC00D1197: Cannot play the file
Windows Media Player cannot play the file. You may encounter this error message for one of the following reasons:

Your computer is not connected to the local area network (LAN) or to the Internet. Connect to the network or Internet, and then try again.
The path to the file is not valid. If you typed a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) in the Open URL dialog box, ensure that the file name is spelled correctly and the path to the file is correct, and then try again. If you clicked a link on a Web page, the link may not be valid.
The server is down or busy. Try again later.
Some network protocols in the Player are not enabled. Enable all network protocols, and then try again.
The proxy server settings for the Player are not configured properly. Verify that your proxy settings are correct, and then try again.

Please try to go the windows media, press Ctrl+U and type the URL into the box and try to open that to see if it is ok.
