Hi all.

When I'm going to some TV streaming sites (for example) through Firefox 3.5.5, I can't see a video. In IE8 it could be a WMP video, or a QuickTime... in IE it works.

I have such media players on my computer: 1. VLC Media Player; 2. Winamp; 3. QuickTime; 4. Media Player Classic.

I also have a TV Player Classic...

So, how can I set it up right? Thanks a lot.

Additional info.: YouTube works.

You probably need the Flash plugin for Firefox.

You're probably right...

Just did a fresh install of both, flash and shockwave... then removed Adobe's crappie add-on (DM)...

Still - the same result.

My guesses, are that these sites accepting only IE connections.

Still, thx man. :thumbsup:

P.S. If YouTube works, etc. - then it isn't Firefox's problem, right? :flowers: Thx.

Right.
You might look at any other Firefox add-ons (e.g. NoScript), and your firewall for something causing the problem if it is not site-specific.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
