Playing mp4 audio gives error message "Video can't be played because the file is corrupt"

more options

Playing a particular mp4 audio file directly from a website link gives error message "Video can't be played because the file is corrupt". However other mp4 audio files from this same website do work correctly. What can I do to get all the the mp4 audio files to play directly from the same website? I must have the correct plugins, etc. since the other files play. This file is not playing from YouTube, is it on the website. Thank you for your help.

What is the link to the site and file in question?

MP4 files should be handled by Firefox itself, not a plug-in.

  1. Click the ≡ Menu Button and choose Add-ons.
  2. Click Plugins.
  3. Set every plug-in to "Never Activate".
  4. Try loading the file again. Is there any difference?
