How do I get windows media player play in Firefox?

I downloaded, and installed the plugin from this website: http://www.interoperabilitybridges.com/windows-media-player-firefox-plugin-download but i don't see it in the plugin section of Firefox. When i go to a site with windows media player it says there is a missing required plugin.

Re: How do I get windows media player play in Firefox?

hello, please try this: enter about:config into the firefox address bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up) & search for the preference named plugins.load_appdir_plugins. double-click it and change its value to true (a restart of the browser might be necessary afterwards for the change to take effect).

some background on the issue is explained in http://www.ghacks.net/2013/05/15/why-you-may-have-lost-access-to-plugins-or-extensions-in-firefox-21...

Hello, I've done the about:config process about 4 times and wmp is still not working, trying to get homework done, very frustrating. Help someone!

Can you find the WMP plugin file (np-mswmp.dll) in the Firefox program folder or elsewhere on your computer?
