I'm running firefox 26 under win xp pro. I broke it - I updated some plugins and disabled some others.
I used to be able to play videos inline. Now, I can only play with an external viewer.
For example, I can play an mp4 video at www.liveleak.com
by specifying VLC. But this brings up an external VLC application.
The flash plugin is enabled.
VLC is set to "ask".
WIndows media player DLL is enabled.
I uninstalled Quicktime.
I have the following questions:
- Does firefox have a native video player and did I somehow disable it?
- Is it possible that uninstalling quicktime caused the problem?
- Is it possible to direct VLC to play videos inline in the web page as opposed to in its own application window?
Thanks for your help,
