I was able to watch it with the Firefox's extension Media Player
Connectivity and the Real Player plugin:
I hope it works for you.
Thanks for this advice. I went on the firefox plugin site and installed the
Media Player Connectivity thing. I had also installed the VLC media player
as suggested in an earlier posting.
I then had to restart firefox. Then the media player connectivity beastie
spring into life and started to sniff around and look for media players on
my machine. It found a bunch and seemed to settle on VLC as its favourite
one. Then when I went on the web site with the video on it I got the AV
box from firefox but then the media player connectivity plugin made a new
little window for me. I then clicked on it and it fired up VLC. Then I was
able to watch the video.....
Thanks a lot.
