William Whitley

(#818) from Kentucky Life Program 818 (2004)

A visit to Sportsman’s Hill, a historic home in Stanford, explores the house itself and the life of its builder, Revolutionary War hero and early Kentucky settler William Whitley. A renowned frontier “Indian fighter,” Whitley volunteered for the War of 1812 in his 60s and was killed at the Battle of the Thames.

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Windows Media plugin is no longer maintained in Firefox, causing it to stop working.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