Playing Windows Media Player in Firefox
by denjones - 11/17/06 4:24 PM
On my new laptop, Gateway, AMD Turion 64 running Windows XP Media Center Edition 2002 SP2 and Windows Media Player 11, I can't play .wmv files thru Firefox 2.0. The will play though in IE7.
Trying to watch video from cnn.com I get the following message.
The CNN.com video esperience is optimized for Windows Media Player 9 or above. No Windows Media Player detected.
On CBS, No media player is installed. Click on one of the links below to install a media player.
I just reinstalled WMP11 with the same results. I can play .wmv files that are on my hard drive but not using Firefox.
When I look in Tools/Options/Content/Manage .wmv isn't listed as a file type.
Your help is appreciated.
