Live TV for Hurricane Gustav from New Orleans

Three years ago, I watched a lot of coverage of Hurricane Katrina from Louisiana online from the WWLTV web site, http://www.wwltv.com. Unfortunately, for Hurricane Gustav all I see now on the WWLTV web site is a green rectangle instead of video. I can hear the audio track fine, but no video. Here is the web page that DOESN'T work for me:

http://www.wwltv.com/video/?nvid=57429&live=yes (This DOESN'T work, for me.)

But, I used right-mouse Properties to get a handle on the URL for the video and found that it works fine if I use it directly in Windows Media Player or Internet Explorer. Here is the direct URL for WWLTV live TV video:
