Chosen solution

There has been a change in where Firefox searches for plugins and the plugins folder in the Firefox program folder is no longer scanned for plugins, so Firefox won't find them anymore if they are installed in the plugins folder instead of the "browser\plugins" folder that Firefox now scans.

You can set the plugins.load_appdir_plugins pref to true on the about:config page to make Firefox scan the "<install>/plugins/" directory for plugins like the WMP plugin (np-mswmp.dll).

Hello SuperMax52,

Thank you for contacting Mozilla Support. It looks like the videos on that page require a WMV player plug-in. Please take a look at the following article to install the correct plug-in to play this content.
