where I can find Windows Media Player plugin for FF quantum 62.0?
Hi, I have win7pro 864) and I run "FF quantum 62.0 - 32 bit"
I'm really struggling with Windows Media Player plugin for FF: I downloaded and installed the latest version (18.104.22.168 is it?) but it doesn't work...
Indeed I cannot see it within the installed plugins and if I try to "install by file (np-mswmp.dll)" it gets me an error of file corruption...
I really don't know what to do anymore...Where can I download it?
thanks a lot!

run cmd as an administrator and type sfc /scannow and hit enter, after its done, type sfc /chkdsk and hit enter, and after that reboot your system and install it from here:
I did every step (the second one is "type chkdsk and hit enter") and then unistalled and reinstalled the plugin, but I still do not see into my firefox addons. I checked and I have the dll file here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\Plugins\np-mswmp.dll
I'm really depressed...
What can I do? thanks!
"Beginning in Firefox version 52 released March 7, 2017, installed NPAPI plugins are no longer supported in Firefox, except for Adobe Flash. Some of the plugins that will no longer load in Firefox, even though they may be installed on your computer, include Java, Microsoft Silverlight and Adobe Acrobat. "
my aim is to embed an audio streaming (window media encoder) into an html page
no problem with IE, nut with FF I gets the error "plugin not supported"
how can I solve this issue?
If I post the code to embed, it can help you to suggest me something?
What site are you going to that requires a WMP plugin?
Would you please try this :
Type in the address bar about:config and pres Enter (promise to be careful, if asked)
Type in the search bar and look for the preference :
and set its value to true
Then close and restart Firefox.

IE is from the last decade, which Microsoft has replaced with Edge.
HTML 5 is now and the future, with no need for Plugins. Adobe Flash is the only viable Plugin that current web browsers (other than IE) still support, and even Adobe wants (and has plans) to dump Flash. https://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-html5-author-20110809/the-code-element.html
thanks to everyone for your help
I tried the suggestion given by McCoy but it's still the same...
@WestEnd, @the-edmeister: I'm trying to embed audio streaming (by Windows Media Encoder) into an html page. This is the only reason why I would need that functionality...
I'm a beginner and honestly I don't know if there are other ways. I can post the code I'm trying to run, if you have some suggestion I would really appreciate...

Hi, your not only after browsers I would think but VLC and MPC-HC x64 Would you not as some people have the URL go through these.
Info on tags : https://www.w3schools.com/
You need to use the AUDIO tag in modern browser to play media file with the HTML5 media player. I don't know what kind of content this is and whether the HTML5 media player can play this file (stream).
the audio stream I would like to embed is the one captured from the microphone of my PC
thanks for the info, I will have a look to the AUDIO tag
fyi: none of the links posted above is running...
no way guys... I'm really struggling reading code and examples but honestly is out of my possibilities... I realize there is that audio tag and mediastream constructor but I'm not able to do it.. I also searched for some examples, but they talk about such a API libraries and I don't know what it is...
I ask you a great courtesy: I have to capture the audio from microphone streaming from one PC, and hear this audio, via browser, on another PC, also this one in my LAN. may someone post me a kind of example I can manage/change? at least something to start...
thank you very much guys! unlimited free coffe ready for you!!

This was given for a reason, it is the very basics that you need and is not technical.
fyi : all the links are running.
