The url below plays in all chrome/ie/safari, but not firefox on windows. It was tested and does play in Firefox on a mac. Please advise.

Hmm. The file doesn't play for me in Firefox 38.0.5 on Linux, but does play in the current beta (39) and later (DE and Nightly) and in Firefox 31.7.0 ESR (not in 38 ESR), so Im not sure what is wrong here. Looks like a regression that the decoder doesn't recognize this file.

There was nothing on that page. Please try another. Also check at another site. Like YouTube.

Thank you cor-el. I downloaded 39 beta and it resolved the issue. It appears as though that version is due out at the end of the month, so things should work out ok. Thanks again!
