Configuring Embedded Audio in Firefox

To fix the "MMS is not a registered protocol" message when trying to view streaming content, here's the fix:

(1.) Open Firefox, type "about:config" (no quotes) in the address window, and click enter.

(2.) Right click on the window and choose [New], then [String] from the pop-up menu that appears.

(3.) In the first pop-up box, enter: "" (no quotes, and it might just be easier to cut 'n paste this into the box).

(4.) In the next pop-up box enter the path to Kaffeine (e.g. "/usr/bin/kaffeine").

(5.) Now, click in the main window again but choose [New] [Boolean]

(6.) In the first pop-up box, enter: "network.protocol-handler.external.mms"

(7.) In the second pop-up select [True].


Install the "media player connectivity" extension for Firefox from the url below, which allows you to open all embedded audio/video links in external media programs.
