Windows media plugin fails to play media in FF 3
If I try to play Windows media in for example http://www.rtvnh.nl/player.php?stream=ItemTV&item=54368 or http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/testpages/wmp11.html nothing is played. The system is XP SP3 with WMP 10. (I keep the old version because I need to use mms protocol). This used to work until recently (3.6.3 and before) though I cannot be 100% sure it is 3.6.4 which "broke" it. Plugin doc says Error - the plugin has not loaded about:plugins reports Microsoft® Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin File: np-mswmp.dll Version: 126.96.36.199 np-mswmp MIME Type Description Suffixes Enabled application/x-ms-wmp np-mswmp * Yes application/asx * Yes video/x-ms-asf-plugin * Yes application/x-mplayer2 * Yes video/x-ms-asf asf,asx,* Yes video/x-ms-wm wm,* Yes audio/x-ms-wma wma,* Yes audio/x-ms-wax wax,* Yes video/x-ms-wmv wmv,* Yes video/x-ms-wvx wvx,* Yes
This works for me on 3.6.3, but it also works for me on 3.6.4 with version of the plugin 188.8.131.52
As far as I know the Windows Media plugin isn't OOPP in 3.6.4 so there should be no behavior differences (though I suppose it could be a bad interaction). Do you have other (potentially OOP) plugins loaded in other tabs when you get the issue?
Works for me with WMP 11 + np-mswmp.dll Version: 184.108.40.206 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/20100527 Firefox/3.6.4 ID:20100527093236
Other plugins, such as Flash etc seem to be working fine. Thanks for the feedback that it is working for others; has anyone got the combo WMP10 + FF364 working?
WMP12 also WFM with the plugin in Windows 7 with 3.6.4 build6 as all versions > WMP6.4 should be supported with the plugin. Have you tried to look at the settings for WMP10 or tried to reinstall WMP10?
hmm. Can you also double check to see if your plugin is not in the disabled state with 3.6.4? Did you run into compatibility checks when installing 3.6.4? I can trigger the error - plugin not loaded if I disable the plugin from the Addon manager and testing the URL.
Also did you install 3.6.4 on top of 3.6.3 or in the standard location? Did you test with a clean profile? Sometimes that helps. Try running Firefox.exe -P to create a test or new profile to see if you still get the issue.
