hi,

since i installed the last quicktime 7.7.9, i don't have anymore the plugin into seamonkey.
the problem is ONLY in itunes page where i can't listen the preview sample anymore.

Before, i got a little button near of each track, which can allow to play 30s each track.
now, there is no more such option.
here a exemple :
https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/emoti ... 1145668035

moreoever, in the url bar, i did not have the little logo (a blue icon jigsaw i think) which alerted us when a plugins ws missing, so it is not missing i guess.

what can i do ?

Incidentally, I mashed ctrl-u and page-downed past a huge wall of JavaScript to find the table(in honest-to-God <table> tags!) with the track listings, and here's what looks to be the relevant code...


Code: Select all
 
    <tr itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/MusicRecording" itemprop="track" role="row" metrics-loc="Track_" audio-preview-url="http://audio.itunes.apple.com/apple-assets-us-std-000001/AudioPreview62/v4/93/59/34/935934cd-1ba8-836e-df4b-c567984cbe73/mzaf_393014357705243966.plus.aac.p.m4a" preview-album="Emotion Side B" preview-artist="Carly Rae Jepsen" preview-title="Higher" preview-duration="301000" adam-id="1145668042" row-number="1" class="song music">
     
        <td role="gridcell" sort-value="1002" class="index ascending">
          <span class="index"><span>2</span><div itemprop="audio" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/AudioObject" class="circular-preview-control"><div class="center-control-state"></div></div></span>
        </td>



And copying the URL listed under audio-preview-url for the preview file and going straight there results in the file playing, in a QuickTime-free Win7 environment. I can verify that the browser is fully capable of rendering these specific audio files without the aid of plugins(the only one of which I have is Java), and that Apple will send them to it.

So the question is really just why doesn't the play button show? We're fully capable of playing the file.




Disabling JavaScript doesn't seem to affect it. I still have no idea what that great wall of JS actually DOES, though.

What does about:plugins show?

What does Addons Manager -> Plugins show?
Is Quicktime set to Ask? Try setting it to Always?
(Though that's might not be a good idea - to even be using QT anymore ;-).)
