Video plugin for Firefox


When trying to watch video from Firefox at wwe.com I get message missing plugin and directed to manually install. Then I am taken to http://www.microsoft.com/windows/win...downloads.aspx there I cannot find any solution (for Firefox in Linux)

hey there - just went to the site and i notice it needs the flash plugin.

This site has some info on how you can download via repositories in suse 10.1 + other cool stuff too like being able to play DVD's watch divx video etc...

If you already have installed the flash web plugin. Open a terminal window and
cd /usr/lib/firefox/plugins
now type 'ls' - minus the quotes
and check that there is a file in there called libflashplayer.so

Interesting... Are you able to paste a link to one of the video's on the web page here?
It must be something other than flash i suppose - have you tried the same page in 'Konqueror' just to see what happens.
I find it loads some Java based pages much better than firefox.

I just had a look, wwe.com requires that you have windows media player to play the files.
no wonder it took you to
hxxp://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/download/alldownloads.aspx

look at XavierP's reply in this thread that might be of use
