  1. Hello,

    My media player plug-in in IE and firefox is broken.
    I have media player 10. But the program works allright, it's the plug-in in the browser.

    For example this fun video, I can't watch because media player is broken.

    What to do?

    "Broken" means what? You see a wide crack in the video picture? Did it work before? What did you do to "break" it? Does the problem occur with all kinds of content or only certain clips?

    I can't play any video with the plug-in. And after I leave the page I get an error message that the windows media dll plug-in made an error.

    Problem is that I don't find the dll. And deleting & re-installing media player does not seem to reinstall the dll.

    Plugins are kept in "plugins" subdirectories in Program Files\Internet Explorer and Program Files\Mozill Firefox. The WMP plugins are called npwmsdrm.dll, npdsplay.dll and npdrmv2.dll. Feel free do overwrite them with a fresh copies from Program Files\Windows Media Player
