Kaffeine and WMV question

I know you can play WMV with Kaffeine but can you get it to automatically play WMV off a webpage without having to save the file to the hard drive first?

Reason I ask is MPG plays fine like this but everytime I click on a WMV file it makes me save it first.

I am using Firefox.

There should be no reason not to. If firefox is not giving you the option, i would go into it's preferences and make sure you don't have saving as the default action for wmv files

I have noticed this as well with some wmv's even if I have suggested that i open with a certain application, Firefox still doesn't open them using the prferred application.
