IE6 WMP11 Plugin not working

Discussion in 'Windows XP' started by none, Jun 4, 2010.

    Just went to this site with IE6:
    http://globalwarming.house.gov/spillcam

    and found the WPM v11 plugin does not activate. There is nothing in the
    window where WPM should be displaying the video. Can someone tell me how to
    install the plugin, where to get it or how to enable it?

    Setup here is XP Pro SP3, IE6

    Thanks

    The ActiveX Control used by that site would be "VIDEO_X_MS_ASF Moniker
    Class", the file would be "wmp.dll". Use Manage Add-ons and make sure this
    ActiveX Control is Enabled.

    Good luck,

    Hi Donald

    Thanks for the help! Checked the setup and WMP ActiveX is NOT listed as a
    currently loaded add-on. It IS listed as a previously used add-on and is
    enabled.

    Any other ideas as to what may be causing it to not load on that page?
    Interestingly, I tried another web site which uses imbedded AUDIO (no video)
    and the plugin runs no problem, it shows as WPM11. Tried another site with
    audio/video and it too works! Shows as WPM11.
    <http://www.beyondtoday.tv/programs/archive/?Title=The-Blessing-of-Marriage-&ProgramID=bt011>
    The plugin shows as ACTIVE when on this site.

    We use a rather big hosts file here, does a great job of helping prevent
    'unwanted pests' from creeping into the system; disabled that and still no
    picture. The issue so far seems to be specific to that site.

    Any other thoughts as to how to fix it? I was wondering if it has anything
    to do with file associations. WPM here is configured with virtually NO file
    associations. Your thoughts ...

    Thanks

    The site you originally posted is using .asx files that point to the actual
    video stream. If you look inside one of the .asx files that are cashed from
    that site you will see something like this:

    HREF="mms://a1524.l9789235523.c97892.g.lm.akamaistream.net/D/1524/97892/v0001/reflector:35523"
    />

    It's possible that your file association for .asx files is hosed?

    You will be better served asking for help on this issue in the Windows Media
    Player discussion group.

    Good luck,

    Donald Anadell

    You need IE7. Because it IE6 is older compare windows
    media player 11. It supports only media player 10. So you need to
    install IE7.

    Hurray, it works now!

    Your comments got me thinking so I went to the two web sites and viewed
    their source code. Turns out the site which works calls for a specific
    application type:

    working: video/x-ms-wmv
    non-working: application/x-mplayer2

    Looked in the registry and found the non-working application type did not
    have a CLSID key. Found the CLSID to use, adjusted the registry (added the
    key) and bingo, it works now. How wonderful!

    Thanks for your help :)

    You're welcome.

    That non working application type "application/x-mplayer2" should have been
    pointing to CLSID "CD3AFA8F-B84F-48F0-9393-7EDC34128127"

    "VIDEO__X_MS_ASF Moniker Class"

    InprocServer32 = "C:/WINDOWS\system32\wmp.dll"

    Glad you got it sorted out.

    Good luck,

    Donald Anadell
