Details

FF 41b5, Win XP

STR:
1. Open http://techslides.com/demos/sample-videos/small.mp4

Actual results:
"Save as" window displayed.
If Quicktime plugin is installed, the video is played using Quicktime.

Expected results:
The video should play using the native player.
Works fine on Win 7.
Windows XP doesn't have Windows Media Foundation. It can't play H264 data natively without the use of a plugin (either flash or Quicktime).

native MP4 is only supported on Vista and later.
