Thread: another plugin issue

  1. another plugin issue

    I'm using Firefox 1.5 with Windows XP Media Center 2005. The only trouble
    I'm having is getting a plugin that will allow me to watch video clips
    within the browser. I like to frequent Break.com and can't watch the videos
    unless I save them or just use IE. I've gone to the plugin page and loaded
    Flash, Java, Shockwave and Windows Media Player plugins but haven't goteen
    anywhere. I didn't have this problem with Firefox 1.4.?? (whatever it was).
    Any ideas on what I need to do?

    Thanks for the help.

    The first one there was the car crash and it worked just great. It
    used WPM, so you might find your answers here:
    http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/windows-all.html#WMP, especially the
    registry patch under known issues.

    Also, you might want to try and reinstall wpm:

  3. Re: another plugin issue

    Well reinstalling didn't work because it says I'm running a newer version.
    I'm not so sure I can uninstall WMP all the way. I went to add/remove
    windows components and removed it that way, but that doesn't "really" remove
    it. The known issues doesn't really apply to my situation. I did find that
    Firefox is missing the WMP plugin. I just need to figure out why I can't
    get it in there.

    why do you say the known issues don't apply to you?

  5. Re: another plugin issue

    I say that because I'm running WMP 10 and XP Media Center. The known issues
    apply to NT, 95 and WMP 9.0. Am I wrong?? Wouldn't be the first time.
    Firefox is not detecting the WMP plugin at all. Here's the text from the
    known issues:

    Windows Media Player
    Windows Media Player 7.1 is not supported on Windows 95 or NT 4.0.
    Workaround: It is possible to install Windows Media Player 7.1 on Windows 95
    or NT 4.0, however, this is not a supported procedure. Installing Windows
    Media Player 7.1 on Windows 95 or NT 4.0.

    When Windows Media Player 9.0 is installed, Mozilla still uses the Windows
    Media Player 6.4 control (bug 193883).
    Workaround: Applying the Windows Media Player 9.0 registry patch will make
    Mozilla use the Windows Media Player 9.0 control. Alternatively, you can try
    using the Windows Media Player ActiveX Control.

    Using the Windows Media Player 9.0 control may cause Mozilla to crash on
    exit on Windows 2000 systems. This appears to be triggered by having the
    Java plugin installed. [Bug 244713]. Upgrading to Java Runtime Environment
    5.0 Update 4 is reported to fix this problem.

  7. Re: another plugin issue

    I fixed it. I had to download a plugin for Netscape (which I don't use) in
    order to get it to work. Tada.

    Thanks for trying to help.
