    I cant view embedded wmv files with firefox - 'missing plugin' and fails to find any plugin.

    Works with IE though

    I know it may sound odd, but you might have to update media player or reinstall it. I had the same problem with integrated media files not playing. A reinstall sorted it out for some reason...

    check your mozilla firefox plugin folder for the following files:

    C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins


    alternatively you can type 'about:plugins' in the firefox address bar.

    if the files above ^^ are not in the folder, download them from below and place them in the plugin folder.


    restart firefox..
    test everything at a website like putfile.com

    if that doesn't work, i suggest you follow this guide :)

    i fixed it....

    dunno how

    ...the only thing thats been changed is that when quicktime asked if it should associate all files that should be opened with QT i said yes, usually I say no - I hate QT almost as much as Media player...

    it works anyway...weird

    thanks all
