New Windows Media Plugin For Firefox

As some have noticed, Windows Media doesn’t really work in Firefox when using Windows Vista. I’ve been to busy to try it just yet, but Microsoft has released a plugin. While disappointed at the lag, I’m thrilled to see support added. I wonder if they would be able to deploy with Microsoft Update to those with Firefox installed? I think it would help some less technical users. Not sure if Mozilla’s update system could do it (assuming licensing would work out), though I don’t know the system very well.

I’ll be taking it through it’s paces over the next few days as I see what it can/can’t do. I discussed Windows Media Player 11 and Firefox not to long ago.

In case it’s ever a trivia question, Microsoft supported Photosynth on Firefox from very early on (if not right away).

Great for Web Developers, great for users.
