Hi, until about a month ago i could play any video on any site , i think firefox was using flashplayer then. Lately i can't play a lot of videos on line it keeps wanting to open them in another tab with VLC player which is time consuming and most inconvenient. i have tried a couple of different versions of flash player and firefox but still the same problem. i am using windows xp sp3. thanks

Hi, always use the latest flash version : Please us this to remove it : https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html Reinstall with Flash Player Version: 31.0.0.108 Current Version https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/

This is the last current version of Firefox that works with XP/VISTA https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/52.9.0esr/ Please pick 32 or 64 bit ( I think your 32 but you would know best) Pick your language if in the US it is US-EN

Backup:

I would think the below is your issue.

I would think your lucky playing anything as your Video Card Drivers are a mess. Please uninstall and reinstall them. adapterDescription: Intel(R) G965 Express Chipset Family driverDate: 7-21-2006 https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/detect.html

It is x-player you would need to search for minimum requirements. Technology is passing you.

You appear to be running a 52.0b9 Beta version.

Why aren't you using the last 52.9.0 ESR version for your OS?

Firefox relies on built-in OS support to play media files via the HTML5 media player. On the Windows XP platform you do not have native support for playing MP4 files with the HTML5 media player.

You can try if the solution posted here to add support for playing MP4 files works for you.

You are going to have to Google x-player embedded and just x-player minimum requirements.

IF as suggested you can install VLC Video Lan and it will play almost anything. You Right Click URL's and stick URL's into VLC

Or the same with HPC-HCx64 discussed in URL

If you need Codecs for other stand alone players use K-Lite
