Unable to detect the Microsoft DRM or Windows Medial Player plugins from the link above. [Ron, I've had VLC for a long time now and installed the latest update May1.]

I have Full K-Lite codex, Registry Patrol, avast, ad-aware et al, CCleaner, and when through all of them before responding to the suggested fix.

I just installed the latest Opera and wma's work from there as well as IE. Opera seems to have a HUGE screen window. Seems great for webcasting....

I also had some problems with the back button on the latest Firefox.

Make sure the Windows Media plugin for Firefox is enabled in tools->add-ons->plugins. The older "npdsply" plugin should be disabled in the same window.

Note that the button says "Enable" when the plugin is disabled and "Disable" when the plugin is enabled.

I had this problem too and I finally solved it by disabling RealPlayer Browser Record Plugin. Now it's OK.
