Videos (Compfused) displayed within Firefox are half height?

When I visit Compfused.com with Firefox (1.5.0.10), the videos all play
in half height. I see this even with all extensions disabled.

Does anyone see this?

What's wrong and how can I fix this?

(IE 7 displays the videos in the correct size)

Pity it doesn't work with SeaMonkey!

OT, but what sort of file is created by the embedded Compfused vid?
Usually if i have a problem with, say, a YouTube vid, I just find the
file in cache, change it to .flv, and play it.... but these don't
respond to .flv players.

See "Installing the new plugin" here:
<http://kb.mozillazine.org/Windows_Media_Player#Installing_the_new_plugin>

Try manually copying "np-mswmp.dll" into ...\SeaMonkey\plugins folder.

Yep! You're right on!

Many thanks.

No ...

I downloaded the player plugin from
http://port25.technet.com/pages/wind...-download.aspx
(File: wmpfirefoxplugin.exe)

I moved wmpfirefoxplugin.exe to C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins
(is this the correct way to install the plugin?)

I closed all Firefox windows (File > Exit) and then opened Firefox and
went to Compfused.

The videos are still playing in half-height.


aboutlugins displays:

Windows Media Player Plug-in Dynamic Link Library
File name: npdsplay.dll
Npdsplay dll
MIME Type Description Suffixes Enabled
application/asx Media Files * Yes
video/x-ms-asf-plugin Media Files * Yes
application/x-mplayer2 Media Files * Yes
video/x-ms-asf Media Files asf,asx,* Yes
video/x-ms-wm Media Files wm,* Yes
audio/x-ms-wma Media Files wma,* Yes
audio/x-ms-wax Media Files wax,* Yes
video/x-ms-wmv Media Files wmv,* Yes
video/x-ms-wvx Media Files wvx,* Yes

I'm wondering if there's more to "install the plugin" than "move it to
the /plugins folder" ...

Duh! You have to run the .exe. All better now.

Thanks!
