     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.
