    I've finally gotten videos to play in FireFox--most of them, anyway.

    Subject site is CNN.com, the only one I've tried so far. Some videos play and some have just sound. The oddity is that on most that play just sound, if I just grab the video screen by its title bar and move it just a smidgen and release it, the video suddenly appears.

    What's up with that?

    Otherwise, there are no video problems on this system.

    When I upgraded to 1.5.0.6, that solved the problem for me at CNN. You might try changing the video acceleration on WMP.
    On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Performance tab. In the Video acceleration area, move the slider to turn down or turn off video acceleration. If it doesn't work, you can change it back.
