Belle of Louisville

(#1212) from Kentucky Life Program 1212 (2006)

Host Dave Shuffett gets a behind-the-scenes tour of the Belle of Louisville, the oldest operating river steamboat in the United States. Launched in 1914 as the Idlewild, the paddlewheel steamer had a long and varied career traversing many of America’s inland waterways before being saved from the scrap heap to be reborn as a beloved symbol of Louisville’s river heritage.

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Windows Media plugin is no longer maintained in Firefox, causing it to stop working.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