Have you been itching to enjoy your media content on Firefox? The Windows
Media Player team put a lot of work into evolving media playback on Windows
Vista through the new Media Foundation pipeline, and has also been actively
monitoring feedback on WMP and playback in general. While commentary has
been mainly positive for Web playback through IE, we've noticed that there's
still work to be done to make Firefox users able to enjoy their media
content on Windows.
We couldn't respond as quickly as we would have liked to (we had to get
Windows Vista out the door!), but now that it's shipped, the team has moved
its attention to getting Firefox users up and running. This week we are
happy to say that we have a new plug-in for Firefox that makes WMP work once
again -- and even better than it did before!
It's easy to get the new Firefox plug-in -- if you navigate to a Web page
today that has the embedded WMP ActiveX control, Firefox will automatically
grab the new plug-in for you to install and you will once again be able to
enjoy your media content
