Hello, All - I'm a new member who has a problem I can't figure out.
I'm setting up a new computer. I use Firefox and when I downloaded it, I got version 2.0, which is pretty new. When I try to view Africam, it opens the space on the page, but before it actually can launch the player, I get a Firefox notice that I need to download a plugin.
What I get is the little green jigsaw puzzle piece and the message, "Plugin Finder Service: No suitable plugins were found. Unknown plugin (video/x-ms-asf-plugin)". There's a button to click to install the required plugin but it just takes me back to that "no suitable plugins message".
I know the cam's up because I can watch it fine from Internet Explorer on the new laptop computer, AND it works with Firefox (version 1.something) on my desktop computer. Both computers are running Windows XP (Home on the desktop, Media Center on the laptop).
I've Googled "video/x-ms-asf-plugin" but instead of finding an actual plugin, I just get discussions that refer to it. Flash, Java, and ActiveX are enabled on the machine.
Does anyone know what plugin it wants, and where to find it? Or is this perhaps a known issue with the current/newer version of Firefox?
Thank you in advance!
