Saving the American Chestnut

(#1318) from Kentucky Life Program 1318 (2007)

In Adair County, biologists hand-pollinate an 80-year-old American chestnut tree as part of an effort to help make the species more resistant to disease. This hardy specimen is an extremely rare survivor of the blight that wiped out billions of American chestnuts in the first half of the 20th century.

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Windows Media plugin is no longer maintained in Firefox, causing it to stop working.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