    Windows Media Player went missing !


    I had this problem for a few days and I couldn't do anything, I've tried many methods but nothing works.

    After the Windows 10 update, I noticed that Windows Media Player went missing. I was about to start one of my games and somehow it worked only when the Media Player is present.

    So, I went to Microsoft's website to install the Media Feature Pack for the most recent version. After installing it, everything went perfectly.

    But after another update, which was installed few days ago, it went missing again.

    I tried to re-install the Media Feature Pack but it says "The update is not applicable to your computer."

    I tried another method, which is: I went to settings, then Apps & Features, then Manage optional features, then add a feature. At this point, I'm supposed to find the Windows Media Player feature, but I couldn't find it. I kept scrolling up and down but i didn't find it.

    Please, help me.

    Sincerely.

    :)

    New Windows Media Player Plugin for Firefox

    Anyone who uses Windows Vista and Mozilla Firefox may be pleased to hear that the Windows Media Player team has now released a plugin for Firefox that should allow the browser to play WMP content on websites. Here are the steps to get it working:
    • Installation of the Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin may require administrative access to your PC. It is recommended that you close all other open browser windows before continuing with the installation.
    • Click the Install button to automatically download and install the Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin.
    • Depending on your security settings, you may see a Security Warning dialog box. Click Install to install the plugin.
    There is a known issue if you are using Firefox version 2.0.0.3 on Windows Vista with the installer failing with error code -203. To work around this simply restart Firefox (you will get a notification that Windows Vista will be changing the Firefox compatibility settings) and then install again - the second time should succeed.

    The download is available here, and the new plugin works on all versions of Windows XP and Windows Vista (although it is mostly intended for Vista, as that currently has no WMP support in Firefox).
