  • Why Firefox 5 will not see the Windows Media Player Plugin?

    Hello useful Mozilla expert,

    When I click on a link to play a standard WMV video in Firefox 5, in the movie player window it is said 'Click here to download the'.

    When I click on 'Click here to download the plugin' in Firefox 5, I get a panel of Firefox that says I need to Windows Media Player 11, but I already Windows Media Player 12 and the browser Firefox WMP plugin installed on this computer... it worked fine in Firefox 3.6.

    If I then click to install the Windows Media Player 11 plugin, it goes to another Firefox sign that says: ' no plug-ins have been installed, Windows Media Player 11 - no available '. Then, there is a "manual install" button, and when I click, it takes me to a third party plugin site called '' which has a plugin Firefox WMP dated April 2007 available.

    Here is the link he gives...

    When I check my Panel "programs and features" in Windows 7 on my control panel, I can see that I have already installed something called, "Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin" installed and it is dated 10/24/2010 and it is version

    Despite having already the required plugin installed and showing in my control panel, programs and features, this WMP plugin does not appear on my plugins Firefox 5 Panel. So I tried to re - install with the installer of origin and available to the above URL Setup (they seem to be the same, except my installer of origin has a date of 2010).

    I also tried the 'fix' option in the setup of the plugin... it still does not appear in Firefox 5, nor this browser will play a WMV file in the integrated test related troubleshooting page plugin Mozilla WMP player, or other pages that embedded the WMV players.

    So the question is, why is Firefox 5 demanding I install a Windows Media Player plug-in older, version of 2007 when I have already installed...? and why it won't work?

    I went through all the troubleshooting information in Mozilla and go to the page dedicated to this subject and nothing works...

    What is the solution? The upgrade again for the 3rd time in the last 2 months, this is not an option... I'm tired of going through all the difficult steps of the upgrade and find what has changed and rejected another upgrade of the browser Mozilla and re - install plugins, extensions, modules and customizations and repair everything that does not work, as I always do now with Firefox 5.

    It seems that as soon as I get most things squared away in a new browser from Mozilla, then they came out with three new releases, so when I'm still struggling with the FF5 version (as I am now) there will be version 9 I get annoying constant 'reminders' upgrade to.

    Thank you

  • CD will not rip using Windows Media Player in windows 7

    I just had Windows 7 a few weeks ago and have had no problems until now to rip CD.

    However now it shows "windows media player is unable to extract one or more tracks from the cd.

    I went to TOOLS - OPTIONS - DEVICES - DRIVE, click on use a connection error (read both rip are default to digital) no change

    I have gone to tab EXTRACT music and tried to drag the bar in the quality of the Audio and/or modify the rip format, but when I do I get "ripping settings could not be suppied" and they reset to original settings.

    I went into the registry editor and delete the MP3 encoding rate low and still no change - it just keeps going give me the "windows media player cannot extract one or more tracks from the cd.

    any ideas?

    Open WMP

    Go to Tools - Options - Rip music and see if you have a location, that music is being ripped off. I did not when I looked, it was empty.

    Then go to organize - manage libraries - music, it should be a location of folder of music here, otherwise click on "add" button and add the music folder.

    Now do the same for the other 3 libraries, videos, pictures and recorded tv, all should have places, remove those without a location.

    try to check out again.

    I hope like me you will be out of service again.

  • How to convert wma and wav, mp4 files and what not not mp3 with Windows media player?

    * Original title: music questions

    Music has become a huge problem for me.   My car CD player only supports mp3 format.  I wish I could burn my CD from which I get used various locations, so that I can play in my car. Or convert files I have, which are not in mp3 format.  I played the same CD in my car for years.  It's a little sad.  And convert mp3 no mp3 files, so I can play them in my car, because I don't have a player other than Windows media player and speakers belong good markets.   How to convert files to wma and wav and mp4 and what not in mp3?

    Music is expensive nowadays and the multiple formats and thus loss of music bought and in the cloud, or itunes 'cannot locate the source' will not play, and when devices in the event of a failure or who are upgraded drives me crazy.  I have more music in my life and I wish that we would go back to portable music as CD.

    I usually use Windows Media player to RIP CD, that I find at thrift stores.   I have my brother gave me, on the PC that is in all sorts of types of music files.  I found a job online converter and it is, according to me, so thank you guys for suggesting that.  Have tried 3 different ones and finally found one that works in the last one.  I think my brain might need a bit of adjustment, of our days, (won't tell you music I have on CD, would seriously date), no kidding, but probably my PC could also use the setting.   I also have itunes for Windows, but have hardly used it.
