Installed Quicktime on Firefox but There Is No Sound

You installed Quicktime on Firefox but there is no sound.

There are two reasons for this:
1. Webpages are written in HTML and the code orders that ".mp3", ".wav "and so on, will be played by Windows Media Player (WMP).

2. WMP is set as the default device to play all media.

Quicktime is seldom chosen by PC users as the default device but it is necessary to install Quicktime in Firefox because some webpages direct that Quicktime must play the film clip in the webpage. When Firefox is freshly installed and it detects any media in a webpage it asks whether you want to load Quicktime. This is despite the fact that it really wants WMP.

Download Quicktime for Firefox here - QUICKTIME

Download the Firefox WMP plugin here - WMP

You may have to go to the Download folder, either the one in C: or the one in the user folder (your name), and double click "QuickTimeInstaller.exe" and "wmpfirefoxplugin.exe" files to install Quicktime and WMP.

When you go to any website now music and video will automatically be played by either WMP or Quicktime.
