    I’ll get it when I get home. However, I want to think you for the blag fodder.

    TV, I have created a direct link to the file if you would still like to see the video, mind you, it’s an 8MB file.

    Alas, I don’t want anymore software on the machine right now. Especially is it is going to be one more service running in the background. The speed and response issues I’ve got now are getting on my nerves.

    I am really getting to HATE Adobe and their never to be sufficiently damned license service thing. It’s like a cockroach. No matter how many times I delete that from the start up list, it keeps showing up again. This is almost to the point that serious consideration is being given to dumping my bought and paid for Acrobat in favor of Foxit.

    I’ve never allowed the Media Player to update. My current version works fine. Microsoft has a really bad reputation for breaking things and/or adding DRM hooks with many of these updates. It is a shame I can’t trust my software provider to leave my machine fully functional and under my control, but it is what it is.

    How about some open source codec that everyone can see? Even Linux users?

    I have tried watching the video on both IE and Firefox, although I prefer IE for the Silverlight, it does play on Firefox; however my default media player is Microsoft Media Player 11.

  5. jimr says:

    If you are using IE, then download and install Microsoft Silverlight, if you are using FireFox, then make sure whatever media player you are using on your computer has the ability to display video from within Firefox.

    By default will look for Silverlight, if it finds it, it uses the default Silverlight player, if it doesn’t then it uses a FlashPlayer plugin which calls your default media player on your machine. So if you are using Microsoft Media Player for your default player, then it will show you a Media Player control. If you don’t see a media player in the window then it’s possible that whatever media player you have installed cannot play videos directly through your browser.

    Can’t watch it. M$ is demanding that I install something. See screen shot of dialog box:
