    Experts-
    I have an ASX file:
    <asx version = "3.0">
    <entry>
        <ref href = "HomeChurch.wma" />
    </entry>
    </asx>
    There is the HomeChurch.wma file in the same directory.

    This works fine in IE, but fails in Firefox
    What do I need to do to workaround/handle?
    Thank you

    No problem.

    3 things to check.
    1. Open Firefox. Go to Tools->Options->Content->File Types and select Manage. Filter there for .asx. Is it set to Open with Windows Media Player Plug-in?

    2. In Windows go to Control Panel->Folder Options - File Types tab, confirm that .asx is also set to Windows Media Player Playlist.

    3. If yes, then we have to look at the Server
    you have to set the MIME type for asx files [video/x-ms-asf] on your web server.
