Windows Media Player on Firefox

 

For those who user Firefox.......

 

Have you been itching to enjoy your media content on Firefox? The Windows Media Player team put a lot of work into evolving media playback on Windows Vista through the new Media Foundation pipeline, and has also been actively monitoring feedback on WMP and playback in general. While commentary has been mainly positive for Web playback through IE, we've noticed that there's still work to be done to make Firefox users able to enjoy their media content on Windows.

 

We couldn't respond as quickly as we would have liked to (we had to get Windows Vista out the door!), but now that it's shipped, the team has moved its attention to getting Firefox users up and running. This week we are happy to say that we have a new plug-in for Firefox that makes WMP work once again -- and even better than it did before!

 

It's easy to get the new Firefox plug-in -- if you navigate to a Web page today that has the embedded WMP ActiveX control, Firefox will automatically grab the new plug-in for you to install and you will once again be able to enjoy your media content

Thank-you. I downloaded it and can watch those demo videos that I posted in one step in Firefox. Before, it was a multi-step process.

I use the FoxyTunes extension in Firefox which lets you use whichever player you have installed on your system....WMP, Winamp, VLC Player, whichever and it hides in the navigation panel.

Thanks Neil.

Paul, that looks like it's for Audio, does it also work with Video?
