Please help! I have downloaded player and plug-in for Media Player and Real Player BUT everytime there is a webcast, I just can not view it. It keeps asking to download plug-in even though I have downloaded it 3x.
Which folder should the plug in go???
Thanks a million

Couple of things ...

Which version of Firefox are you running?

Firefox doesn't have 'plug-ins' - it uses Addons which are self-installing when you pick them from the Addons site.

Actually, I believe Moz refers to such things as plug-ins.

Flash, media players, MS DRM, Java, whatnot.

Yes, they should be entirely self-installing. They shouldn't be "manually" downloaded and placed anywhere, unless you get installable executable, in which case you'd double-click to install.

Look under Tools > Addons > Plugins and make sure they're enabled, also.

If you downloaded a plugin as an XPI file, go to Plugins and click Install, then navigate to the XPI file you saved.

Do you have Admin privileges to install software?

Most plugins depend on Java

by robo_dev In reply to PLUG-IN FOR FIREFOX

So often, if the Java add-on is old or broken, nothing else will work.

So first make sure java is happy.

Whenever possible choose 'get addons' from the tools>addons menu, and the Firefox program should automatically install what you need.

What sort of webcast?

What version of Firefox?

To fix/test the various plugins, such as Flash, Real Player, or Windows Media Player, you typically have to pay a visit to those sites. Sun has a test page for java, adobe has one for flash, real has one for real, etc.....
