Title:Link to Windows Media Player Plugin for Chrome needs updating in Video ModuleLink to Windows Media Player Plugin for Chrome and Firefox needs updating in Video Module

and the plugin for Firefox is found at http://www.interoperabilitybridges.com/windows-media-player-firefox-plug...

I'm going to submit a patch, the file is video/theme/video-play-windowsmedia.tpl.php

***********************

a little more fiddling and I find that Chrome will display an "install missing plugin" bar without the link added in the player; but the text link in the player suppresses the Chrome browser bar

Firefox will not display any bar for the plugin so we need the link

so far the code looks like this

<?php
$bua
= $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'];
if(
strpos($bua, 'MSIE'))    print t('No video?  Get the Windows Media !plugin', array('!plugin' => l(t('Plugin'), 'http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/download/')));
if(
strpos($bua, 'Firefox')) print t('No video?  Get the Windows Media !plugin', array('!plugin' => l(t('Plugin'), 'http://www.interoperabilitybridges.com/windows-media-player-firefox-plugin-download')));
/*if(strpos($bua, 'Chrome'))
        print t('No video?  Get the Windows Media !plugin', array('!plugin' => l(t('Plugin'), 'http://www.interoperabilitybridges.com/wmp-extension-for-chrome')));*/
?>

patch attached (against 6.x-5.x branch)

new code:

<?php
// handle missing/disabled Windows Media Player plugins
 
$bua = $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'];
  if(
strpos($bua, 'MSIE')) //
   
print '<p><br />' . t('No video? Check that your WMV plugin is enabled in browser options, or get the Windows Media !plugin', array('!plugin' => l(t('Plugin'), 'http://www.sevenforums.com/media-center/161359-media-player-wont-play-web-wmv-files-anymore-5.html'))) . '</p>';
  else if(
strpos($bua, 'Firefox'))
    print
'<p><br />' . t('No video? Check that your WMV plugin is enabled in browser options, or get the Windows Media !plugin', array('!plugin' => l(t('Plugin'), 'http://www.interoperabilitybridges.com/windows-media-player-firefox-plugin-download'))) . '</p>';
 
/*
  * Chrome will display a bar to install the plugin; if you prefer a text link, uncomment this part,
  * but the bar will not be displayed if the text message is displayed in Chrome
  */
  /*
  else if(strpos($bua, 'Chrome'))
    print '<p><br />' . t('No video? Check that your WMV plugin is enabled in browser options, or get the Windows Media !plugin', array('!plugin' => l(t('Plugin'), 'http://www.interoperabilitybridges.com/wmp-extension-for-chrome'))) . '</p>';
  */
 
else print '<p><br />' . t('No video? Check that your WMV plugin is enabled in browser options, or get the Windows Media !plugin', array('!plugin' => l(t('Player'), 'http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/windows-media-player'))) . '</p>';
?>
