How To Play Streaming WMA, Media Player Video In Firefox

View Windows Media Content embedded within Firefox

The Firefox web browser cannot play Windows Media Player content that is embedded in webpages. To play Windows Media Audio (.WMA), or Windows Media Video (.WMV), or .ASF file types, that might sometimes be embedded in sites as streaming media, you need to have Windows Multimedia framework installed and enabled on your browser. This allows you to play Windows Media files over the Internet through the MMS protocol or the RTSP protocol.

The Windows Media multimedia framework is a Microsoft technology created exclusively for distribution on Windows platforms. However, recently, Microsoft has released the Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin that has changed this situation. Now, Windows Media files can be streamed within the Mozilla Firefox window even though it is a non-IE third-party browser.

This plugin has been designed for all of the Windows versions – and works fine on all of the Windows XP and Windows Vista (32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x64)) versions.

Downloading/Installing the Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin

You can the latest version of the Firefox plugin from here.

After you have downloaded the ‘wmpfirefoxplugin.exe’ installer executable, simply double-click on it and then click on the Install button. It is best if you have logged on to your machine as an administrator before you run the installer. Also, make sure that you close all your browser windows before starting the installation process.

In most cases, when you try to play an embedded Windows Media file in Firefox, you are automatically guided to this plugin and are advised to download it.

How Do Reset Or Upgrade DRM Utility in Windows Media Player

Errors due to Digital Rights Management (DRM)  constraints in Windows Media Player (WMP) – be it in Vista, Windows XP/ 2000 / 9x / Me – can be quite annoying. This happens particularly if the media file is copyrighted and thus frequently shows DRM license errors. The only solution to this problem is to change the copyright (i.e. DRM) settings of Windows Media Player so that it does not show error messages.

Moreover, there is another problem that can crop up while using the FairUse4WM (FU4WM) – a handy application that removes the DRM component of the copyrighted media that you purchased – and you might get an error message saying:

<filename> does not appear to be licensed to you

This error arises primarily because Mirakagi tool gets started before the license is actually acquired by FU4WM. A simple suggestion is to wait till the Play button is activated before you press the Start button in Mirakagi. However, if you have not installed the copyrighted media’s license key properly, then this error will keep on cropping up and you will have no other option than to reset the DRM license settings manually.

Also, you should know that resetting the DRM settings in WMP is equivalent to re-individualizing WMP. This means that all the media DRM licenses will be cleared and the DRM settings will be reset to a clean original state – the idea being that all errors are undone in the process. In this case, if you want to play the media file again, you will have to go to the site you bought it from, and buy a new DRM license that is valid.

You should read this informative guide to WMP DRM settings if you want to know more about this issue.
