Uses VLC to play and not Windows Media Player
« on: May 30, 2013, 12:39:37 am »

Hello,

My files are all .wmv but my gallery twill only open the VLC media player (here I recorded them on) to play them.
Some people cant watch then on the PC I guess they don't have the VLC media player installed.

I understand they won't play on ipad or iphone as they don't have flashplayers.
I also see some browsers play them differently too.

How can I change it so they ONLY open in the windows media player??

Please im only newbie no intense technical talk i am trying to understand all about the plug ins...

Many thanks
Helen

Use this plugin to your browsers display the Windows Media Player interface originally displayed by Internet Explorer. Go to plugins page here.

Currently this plugin works in all browsers except the latest version of FireFox 21.0 and I also am looking for how to fix it because in previous versions of FireFox always worked well.

This plugin works for my browsers:
Opera 12.15
Chrome 27.0
Safari 5.1.7
SeaMonkey 2.17.1
Maxthon 3.4.5

Best Regards

---Edit---
I forgot to say, it may be necessary disable VLC Web Plugin on your browser.

I found the solution, I thought it would be more difficult:

Source: Mozilla Support

Go into about:config and change plugins.load_appdir_plugins from false to true. Apparently FF21 sets this value to false by default causing it to not detect plug-ins installed in this manner.

Best Regards
