wmv files don't play in Firefox
 
I have added a couple of wmv files by adding a label then linking to the files which are in the course files area.
In IE they display correctly but in Firefox I get "the source filter for this file could not be loaded".

If I save the file instead of playing it, then it downloads OK and can be played.

Firefox will play wmv files from other web sites so it seems to be a problem with the moodle multimedia filter.

I am using Firefox 2.0.0.1

Hello John,

I didn't realise I had a problem  until I read your post. I have the same issue, and must admit, I only checked to see if my video was working in IE. I reckoned if it was going to fail, it would be in IE. When I saw it work there, I didn't bother to check Firefox.

Anyone any ideas?

I've got the same problem with Firefox/Moodle 1.72 - any solutions yet?
Also when the wmv does play in IE it logs me out or kills the session.

I convert wmv, mpg, and avi to flv. It works with both browsers.

I found an ugly but working solution.
