Howard Steamboat Museum

(#1109) from Kentucky Life Program 1109 (2005)

Host Dave Shuffett revisits the glory days of the riverboat at the Howard Steamboat Museum in Jeffersonville, IN, just across the Ohio River from Louisville. The Howard family operated one of the largest inland boat construction and repair facilities in the U.S. from the 1830s until World War I, and the mansion that now houses the museum was once the family home.

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Windows Media plugin is no longer maintained in Firefox, causing it to stop working.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