Yes I saw that but I understand that you cannot get WMP to play in Firefox. Presumably you have WMP set to be your default media player, all I am suggesting is that you re-set your default media player to VLC, that way when you try to stream your ASF file in Firefox it will automatically pick up VLC instead of WMP.
