When I click the link, a new (blank) window opens, RealPlayer launches, and a pop-up error appears saying "Window Media player cannot play the file... file is either corrupt or not supported format."
This happens in Firefox (latest updates installed), Netscape and Opera. In these browsers, if I simply refresh the blank window, RealPlayer begins playing the video and all is well. But I don't want users to have to refresh just to play the clip.
Anyone know what causes this to happen?
FWIW, the video plays fine (and without generating a blank page) in IE.
1)do not use realplayer for .wmv... if necessary, point the file associations on your pc to the windows media player instead.
2)firefox does not do activex, so it will never play .wmv, unless you go to in2tv and install the appropriate software.
3)nobody uses netscape and opera, so don't worry about it.
4)if it works in i.e., you are probably o.k. for the vast majority of people on the 'net.
