Kentucky Life

(#822) Confederados

As part of the largest exodus of U.S. citizens in American history, Confederate veterans from Kentucky and other states fled to Brazil after the Civil War and established a permanent settlement. Their descendants still dress up in hoop skirts and sing "Dixie"—in Portuguese/Brazilian accents. A 2002 KET production hosted by Dave Shuffett.

Trouble with video in Firefox:

This is a known issue with the Window Media Video format.

Windows Media plugin is no longer maintained in Firefox, causing it to stop working.

Solution: Change the Firefox configuration file.
  1. Open a new tab or window.
    In the "Location/URL" bar, type "about:config" and press Enter.
    (The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page will appear. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page.)
  2. In the "about:config" page search bar, enter:
    "plugins.load_appdir_plugins"
  3. Double click the preference name to change the "value" to true.
  4. Close and restart Firefox. The video should now work once you reopen the page.
    If not, then the WMV plugin may not be installed.
