Need Windows Media Player Plugin for Windows 8

Posted

When I go thru the directions to install the plugin it only shows up to Windows 7. I have Windows 8. The media player works fine thru Internet Explorer, but I'd rather use Firefox.

Problem - I have an important viewing of my daughter's 3d/4d ultrasound this Saturday and I don't want to mess up my laptop by installing the wrong version and not being able to view it at all.

Thanks.

Those instructions should work for Windows 8 as well. Did you try to install the plugin, assuming that you've already installed the WMP? * https://support.mozilla.org/kb/Using+the+Windows+Media+Player+plugin+with+Firefox * http://kb.mozillazine.org/Windows_Media_Player#Missing_plugin * http://www.interoperabilitybridges.com/windows-media-player-firefox-plugin-download *http://www.interoperabilitybridges.com/html5-extension-for-wmp-plugin
