Chalybeate Springs

(#618) from Kentucky Life Program 618 (2000)

A visit to Chalybeate Springs in Edmonson County, location of a 19th-century resort where the well-to-do came to “take the waters” of an iron-rich spring. Folklorist Dale Young and owner Dr. Samuel Gray talk about their efforts to document the site’s nearly forgotten resort history.

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Windows Media plugin is no longer maintained in Firefox, causing it to stop working.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