This is about the HTML5 media player and not about a plugin like Shockwave Flash. It is possible that the website has changed from using a Flash based player (object tag) to the HTML5 media player (video tag).
Does the Web Console ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Web Developer) show more information about what file types are offered by the website?
thanks . i tried to learn info about the Web Console (which i know nothing , i'm sorry) . i refreshed the site and found a lot of things popping up there . among those , i could only find this make a bit sense .

can this help ? thanks a lot !!!
When I get that notice, I just download the clip for later.
thanks . but it's a live feed or stream or whatever it's called ( i'm a real dummy here , sorry ) . also , when i encountered this problem , i went to Chrome directly and it could b played there with no problem . Thus , that's what i'm doing now , using Chrome to play that link ; yet , i'd like to know if there's any way i can solve it here in FireFox .
thank you so much !
If it is a stream (or a file with stream URIs) and not a playable file then you probably can't download and save it.
yeah , it's a live streaming . just don't know why it started refusing to play with FireFox . in the meantime , i can only use Chrome to watch it ......
The add-on I posted above can download live streams.
