Need of plugins
The plugins are very small utilities or the add-ons that have got the ability to add to, or could extend the built-in functionality of a Windows Media Player. It is seen that these plugins would come mainly in three categories. They are called plugins, skins and the Visualizations. By using these plugins, you could be able to improve the functionality of Windows Media Player. Each plugin has got its own distinct function. Some of them could add audio and video quality, while some others have the ability to show the lyrics and all. Thus, these plugins would add features which are not being included in the base configuration.
Mozilla Firefox Plugin
By default, the Windows Media Player would integrate with Mozilla Firefox. This would install a plugin called 'Windows Media Player Plug-in Dynamic Link Library' whose ID is Ipdsplay.dll. But, there would be issues like “missing plugin”. Microsoft would have developed a new plugin for Windows XP and above OS. This would solve the issues and would also add new features. This Firefox plugin having the ID: np-mswmp.dll need to be downloaded and installed separately.
It is seen that by default, the Windows Media Player could be able to handle most types of the media files. But, users would find that some sound or video files are not being compatible with the player. In order to ensure that Windows Media Player would have to play all of your files, you need to consider the installing of codec plug-ins. These types of plugins could be able to handle formats such as H.264, AC3, DTS, XVid, DivX and many others.
