The problem with the first three is the mms;// protocol... Firefox
doesn't know what to do with it, and I couldn't play the files.
The last one is somewhat different. Inside the .asx file is a reference to;
which does play in Firefox with the MPlayer plugin.
The only thing I can suggest is to download any file with an http;//
protocol and open in in a text editor. If the reference inside is also
http;//, try playing that in Firefox.
Respect the elders. Teach the young. Co-operate with the pack.
Play when you can. Hunt when you must. Rest in between.
Share your affections. Voice your opinion. Leave your Mark.
