    Hello,I have Windows XP 32 bit with service pack 3 and Firefox 52.9.1 ESR browser.
    Now that Adobe Flash player is history I can't watch videos online that are not on youtube. I can still watch youtube videos though.

    Is there a HTML5 video player or something else I can install on this computer that will work or is that not possible? I know it's an old computer but it still does the job.

    Can someone explain exactly how to install the Primetime zip package into subfolder 17?
    The instructions on the msfn site are confusing to me.
    I've got this far but can't install the zip.
    This has been a big headache for a non advanced computer user.
    Everything else is done and ready to go.

    To install the plugin:

    1. Open your FF profile folder. An easy way to navigate to it is by opening about:support in FF and clicking the Open Folder button next to Profile Folder.
    2. Inside the profile folder, create subfolder gmp-eme-adobe and open it.
    3. Inside gmp-eme-adobe, create subfolder 17 and open it.
    4. Unpack the Primetime ZIP archive into folder 17.
    5. Folder [your FF profile path]\gmp-eme-adobe\17 should now contain three files: eme-adobe.dll, eme-adobe.info, eme-adobe.voucher.

    You could probably receive informed advice if you were to provide us with an informed question.
    The Primetime DRM package isn't going to work in XP so you are chasing a red herring.

    Which HTML content are you attempting to play? Most videos play fine in MyPal browser's HTML5 renderer.

    Some things just aren't to work in any XP browser but MyPal is updated regulalrly unlike Firefox 52.9 ESR.

    Are you positive it won't work?
