Make sure you installed wmp plugin matching your os, NT or 9x http://kmext.sourceforge.net/mplug.htm

how do i install a plugin?

plugins that are in zip format are netscape format plugins(np). they do not contain component files and should be extracted directly into k-meleon\plugins folder.

according to about:plugins supports:

video/x-ms-asf-plugin 	Windows Media video 	asf,asx 	Yes
video/x-ms-asf 	Windows Media video 	asf,asx 	Yes

Alternative solution:

http://kmext.sourceforge.net/mplug.htm

WMP NT | WMP 9x

windows media player plugin for playback of streaming ms formats
formats: asf, asx, wm, wma, wax, wmv, wvx

Alternative solution 3 (fictive):

Some people also use the activeX plugins support. But I do not know any valid download page for that, the one at extensions.geckozone.org is not valid any more.

ActiveX support has security problems: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=206213


p.s. This question is not a K-Meleon bug but a support question that belongs into the General Forum.

Thanks, i finally got it. downloaded this wmplayer plugin for firefox installed and copied the extracted files located in C:\pfiles\Plugins to K-meleon PLugins directory.

Thanks again,
