Getting Firefox to Display Streaming Videos ect...

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I can't figure out what plug in a need to play streaming videos that are imbedded into many sites now days(, ect.) I got it to work wtih safari but with Firefox it always displays some green wrench or something to symbolize it won't play and when I hit "find plug ins" it just takes me to microsofts website.

I already have windows media player installed...whats the hold up?

I am running OSX(the latest version) on a MacBook.

    I have no idea. I believe they are windows media player formatted or something. Just most streaming videos in general that are embedded in a site I cannot watch. I figured this would be a common problem.

    Flash seems to run fine though...
