Can't play web video

Posted

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

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

Please Explore Moving to Linux to keep yourself and others on the net safe from a expired and obsolete OS like XP
