Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin for FF3?

Any body have any experience with that?

When I visit BBC's player here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/console/fivelive/

It tells me "To play BBC Radio 5 live please first install Windows Media Player for Firefox. "

And links to here:
http://port25.technet.com/pages/windows-media-player-firefox-plugin-down...

But I'm assuming there is some special trick for it not to end up in the wrong place?

Excellent, thank you for that dll! It works fine now!
Internet Explorer 6 (yes, I know > corporate) kept on crashing on a page that now loads without trouble in FF 3.6.6.

Real Player?

When I go to the BBC link it prompts me to install Real Player not the Windows Media Player. Kind of strange no?

Unfortunately no, the

Unfortunately no, the QuickTime codecs themselves are not portable.

However, some plugins files can be added to the Firefox Portable plugins folder so they can use the Quicktime codecs if it is locally installed.
