Windows Media Player Plugin Review

WMV is a video format created and used by Microsoft and associated by default to Windows Media Player. As it’s a proper Microsoft format, when we try to open a video file of this kind, in other words, in .WMV extension, on any other browser which is not Internet Explorer, the video will be downloaded as a conventional file instead of being played directly.

For being able to play the MWV videos directly form Firefox and Chrome browsers, Microsoft has launched Windows Media Player Plug-in, a utility which, after installing it and restarting the browsers, will play .wmv videos on Chrome and Firefox browsers with no need of downloading the to the PC.

Windows Media Player Plug-in download is very simple, as it’s just needed to run the downloaded file and the plug-in will get installed directly on the PC so that Chrome and Firefox will recognize the Windows Media Video files and will be shown right in the browser with no need of downloading Windows Media Player and running those files independently.
