Thanks for the feedback tullie. Strange that VLC would create problems with codecs, even as a plug-in. Noted.

Reading the stuff from your link it said something along the lines of WMP and VLC plugin clashing,so in the end neither worked.

Not a lot of people know that if you have a lot of plug-ins in fire-fox it will knacker the browser.

I should imagine the same is true of all browsers.

Glad you're sorted.

Is this the Firefox plug in you downloaded? if that's not working then the only suggestions I can find is to use a media converter and play it in VLM or similar.

Then maybe download VLC Click Here and use it as your default player so that all media automatically plays through it instead of WMP
