Whenever i try to open a page with a video on it that uses windows media player firefox tells me i need to download the plugin. Well I realized I didnt have WMP installed so I installed it and it still does not recognize it. If I open the same page in IE it works fine. Anyone have an idea why?

have you downloaded the plugin? It's not the same as just installing Windows Media Player.

Maybe i am doing something wrong here? I went to the mozilla plug in page, went down to WMP and then clicked on version 10 for windows xp under the download section. That brings me to the microsoft page and i clicked download wmp 10 now. When i opened the install file that downloaded it told me I have a newer version already installed. Could this have something to do with the fact that I am running windows XP media center and firefox is not compatible with XP Media Centers version of WMP?
