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.

    Disregard that: I was trying to be too clever... they're plain ole
    ..wmv files!

    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.

    No ...

    I downloaded the player plugin from
    http://port25.technet.com/pages/windows-media-player-firefox-plugin-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.


    about:plugins 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!
