    Hi,

    Whenever I go to check for updates in windows media player, it says "there
    is already a more recent version of windows media player on your computer,
    setup cannot continue." what do i do? Also, on webpages, none of the videos
    play. They all say I have to download a plugin, but it works in internet
    explorer. And I prefer mozilla more. What should I do to solve the problem?

    What version of Windows are you using?

    That sounds like a question for the Mozilla team - they're not supporting
    the established plug-in interfaces that WMP supports, which is the source of
    this problem. I believe they've already doc'd this along with a solution...
    ?

    OK, then you have the most to date version of WMP for your system. The
    message was quite correct there.

    So everything you're seeing is expected, and you would just want to follow
    up with Mozilla support. =)

    i did everything that was listed in the mozilla help and troubleshooting page
    about the windows media player plugin and it still didn't work. i can now
    play some (some being the keyword) videos on webpages, but i cannot play all.
    for those that i can now play, turns out the problem was some activeX control
    or something. also, when i open windows media player to check for updates, it
    still gives me the same message. "there is already a more recent version of
    windows media player running. setup cannot continue." what should i do?

    You have the absolute latest version of WMP. You do not need to Check for
    Updates at this time. That message is correct, and can be ignored since
    once you've checked : hey, you know you're good.

    Those sound like excellent questions for Mozilla / Firefox support. I don't
    know what they're currently doing with their embedded plug-in support, so
    talking with the people over there who are actually doing that work would be
    a much better idea than talking with us over here who just get to be
    confused by the latest tack being taken. =)
