ASF Files will not play

  tullie 14:19 13 Jun 2012

Hi folks,third attempt at posting this.I have tried streaming an ASF file in Firefox,without succsse.I have downloaded the Firefox plugin for WMP,still no joy.The file streams ok in IE.I have Windows 7 64 bit,any thoughts please?

Is this the Firefox plug in you downloaded? if that's not working then the only suggestions I can find is to use a media converter and play it in VLM or similar.

Chub_tor,thanks for suggestion,have allready got the plugin.dont know how i can convert it as its just a click here on the website.

Then maybe download VLC Click Here and use it as your default player so that all media automatically plays through it instead of WMP

Thanks for that,have allready got VLC,the file actually plays in the browser,thats if it would work.

Forget my last,it actually plays in WMP with IE.

Yes I saw that but I understand that you cannot get WMP to play in Firefox. Presumably you have WMP set to be your default media player, all I am suggesting is that you re-set your default media player to VLC, that way when you try to stream your ASF file in Firefox it will automatically pick up VLC instead of WMP.

Thanks for suggestions,tried your suggestion,no joy.Can allways open IE to view these files,so all is not lost,just frustration.

Thanks rdave13,the problem has been solve after i disabled the VLC plugin.

Thanks for the feedback tullie. Strange that VLC would create problems with codecs, even as a plug-in. Noted.
