I recentl downloaded firefox portable on a 1 gig flash drive. I also downloaded Opera on the same drive. I'm having problems watching videos (plugins required) for both browsers. Perhaps I've downloaded the wrong plugins. So please tell me what you use ie Adobe flash or silverlight, both or whatever. Oh and can you tell me what plug in does what.
Thanks,
Mike.
P.S. Please excuse my forum etiquette, as I'm quite new to this.
Mike :-)

Do you know what sort of videos they are?

WMVs? Quicktimes? Or are they flash?

If they're flash based, the best thing to do to install the required plugin is to follow the instructions over at PortableApps, aka http://portableapps.com/support/firefox_portable#plugins (If the link doesn't take you to the right spot on the page, scroll down to the header "Installing Plugins (Flash, Shockwave, etc.)" )

I followed their instructions for my install of PFF, and it works without a fuss. Hooray for flash :)~

To not answer your other question, I have no idea about Silverlight. My guess is that it's like Skub ;P


Slightly off topic, if you're using Portable Firefox v3.x, and you find that it lags a bit when opening a new tab/going to a new address, I recommend you install Old Location Bar, aka https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/7637
I was getting sick of the new "Awesome Bar" that FF3 introduced, and upon installing OLB, the performance of PFF suddenly doubled (Scarily, that's modesty - The performance gain was more than double. Scary huh?)


Let us know how you go :)

ok, When I open web pages most of the time I'll get a message about needing plugins to view all the content oa the page, when I click on a video to watch I get a message plugins missing, click here to download.. And I do do thet, I download whatever it suggests, I follow all the step and wait for the download complete message befor doing anything else.
In the plugin folder of ffp I have Realplayer11gold and wmpffp (windows media player firefox portable?) also silverlight. They are application files, so when I click on them they open and install. But I don't know where the are installed, I've looked on both c and the flash drive. When I reopen the web page I get the same message about "missing pulgins click here to download"
Adobe flash is working fine.
I'n not sure what type of video files I'm having trouble with.
If you tell me what you are using I can download the same.
Whats flash block?
I'd really like any help you can give me, Ohh I have vista home as my os.
Thanks all,
Mike.

If it's nothing suss, would you mind putting up a link to one of the sites that you're having trouble with? That way we should be able to tell you what type of video/media is on that particular page.

Another thing you can try for yourself is when you go to one of these pages, go to the Tools menu, and then select Page Info . Find the section with a listing of Media (Under Firefox3 it's the second tab), and scroll through, keeping an eye out for anything that has a type as "Embed". Clicking on it and checking the Type might help you determine what media requires a plugin.

For this copy of FireFox portable that I'm running, I've got Shockwave Flash installed.

An extra question - Does Internet Explorer load these pages/videos fine?

I think it must be the sites problem. according to the add ons menu I have installed...
adobe Acrobat,
Mozilla default plug in,
Quicktime plug in 7.4.5
Realjukebox ns plug in,
Realplayer version plug in,
Realplayer g2 live concert enabled plug in
Shockwave flash, and
Silverlight.
Still not sure where the files are stored or if the add ons are working. Soooo much to learn, where to start?
Thanks for all your help, I've decided its a fault with the site. Not that its a good or interesting site, its just that I don't like not being able to get it working.
And I've the Old Location Bar 1.3 installed under extensions, thanks LordBug.
