I have set the program to file type option to both "windows media player" and "ask" and Firefox still opens the mp3 in a generic player in a new tab. MP3s played in the Windows Media Player popup window (after downloading) fine in the last version of Firefox 20.X. I've tried disabling the Microsoft WMP plugin (the only way to stop them from opening in a new tab using Quicktime was to disable the Quicktime plugin).
hello sewing1243, firefox 21 now makes use of the codecs that are included in your OS that enable it to directly play mp3 & mpeg files (also for html5 videos). in order to disable that, enter about:config into the firefox address bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up) & search for the preference named media.windows-media-foundation.enabled. double-click it and change its value to false.
"Media Player" is a browser extension to play music and video files either locally or from an online source. This project aims to bring VLC like media playing experience by using native HTML5 technology. The add-on is built on top of the well-known video.js project by applying a few custom plug-ins to enhance the user experience. This player supports media boosting, speed control, playlist media selection, fullwidth-progress bar, HTTP-streaming (M3U8), and wave surfer visual for audio files.
VLC media player even has web plugins that are available for all kinds of browsers, which allows one to view all the content which is compatible with VLC. VLC web plugins are available for Chrome (Windows and Mac), Mozilla Firefox (Mac and Windows), and Safari. To download these plugins, you can visit the leading download websites such as cnet, Softonic, etc. The following steps will guide you through it.
If the playback operation for the media content on the affected webpage fails again, then you can click on the Open content button (from the NoPlugin extension menu) to save the media file to your drive. The file will be downloaded. You will then be able to use your preferred media player to play the video or audio file.
