Quicktime and Flash in Mozilla


If you have QuickTime installed, copy the following dll:

C:\Program Files\QuickTime\Plugins\npqtplugin.dll

into Mozilla's plugin directory, which for me is located here:

C:\Program Files\Mozilla\bin\plugins

Macromedia Flash:

Goto the Flash download site and download the "Netscape only" version of Macromedia Flash Player 6. When you run the installer, if you installed the installer version of Mozilla, it should detect your version of Mozilla and install the plugin automatically. If you installed Mozilla from a zip, then click "Other Browser" and manually enter the location of your Mozilla directory.

Now, if you look in Mozilla's plugin directory, you should see "npswf32.dll" there. That's the Flash plugin.


Apparently you can now set your plugins directory to load from your profiles directory instead, but I couldn't get this to work for me.

Be sure to put the plugin in Application Data\Mozilla\plugins, and not in your profile directory, then it should work

Win98 Mozilla 1.0 RC3. I have installed Macromedia Flash Media Netscape version per instructions above. The file npwmsdrm.dll now resides in C:\Program Files\Mozilla\bin\plugins.

Rebooted, still not workie. Also Help | About Plugins doesnt appear to list any info about this presumably installed plugin.

Any ideas?

PS Other than place the proper dll file in the proper directory, what else does the Flash installer do?
