    Play embedded video on web in external player

    I just did a fresh install of 8.04, but it never dawned on me that FF 3 came with it. For a website I subscribe to, they go through a company called Jump TV. The video that is streamed is embedded into a webpage, and when loading up that page in FireFox, nothing happens. I used to use an extension called Embedded, which would let me see the links of any embedded video, so I could launch it with whichever media player I wanted. But, that extension isn't available for FF3.

    The media that is embedded in Windows Media. The url for it usually ends in swf, so that means (and I could be wrong), that it's embedded in some sort of Flash player built into the site.

    Any suggestions on getting this to work?

    You could manually download the extension (the .xpi file)and hack it (edit the install.rdf) to work with firefox 3
    An Example of what to look for to edit
    <!-- FireFox -->
    Replace 2.0.* with 3.0.* save and then manually install and it will work in most cases with firefox3
    All you need to edit the .rdf is gedit and the archive manager fileroller.
