Web: I watched a hilarious Rob Corddry segment from The Daily Show last night, repeated from earlier in the week. Having not seen The Daily Show in a while, since dropping everything but basic cable, I went looking through The Daily Show video archives to see if I could find a few more good ones — with no luck.
Every link on the Video page links to something like this:
Which opens a popup with this page. Now, the
interesting thing is that I do have Real Player installed — but for
some reason, Firebird hasn’t figured this out. If I could just get
the URL for the
.ram file directly from the server and play it.
So this is where my idea for a new extension comes in. It should do this:
navigator.pluginset al, and allow the user to select what plugins to report;
- add a context (right-click) menu item to list the URIs used in
objecttags, and allow those to be cut and pasted — or launched in any helper apps registered for that filename extension. Alternatively, it could just replace the object with a link to open that file in the helper app.
The second then allows the user to get hold of the URL for future use, or pop it up in an external viewer.
