Bizarre Code::Blocks Problem

I've been using Code::Blocks for a long time now & have never had any problems with it. But recently I started to receive the following error.
  • mingw32-g++.exe: no input files
I'd installed Code::Blocks & the MinGW Compiler seperately using the MinGW Automated Installer from here.

I noticed that whenever I attempted to compile a project the complete Compiler output was being displayed. So I checked the Compiler settings & noticed that the following option was being used.
  • -print-search-dirs
When I removed it, I could compile without any problems.

Firefox WMV Plugin

Back in the late nineties I used to watch a television programme called 'The Asian Football Show', after doing some searching on Google I discovered that the show had been renamed 'Football Asia'. I also found they had a site here where you can watch footage from various matches.

When I tried watching the videos in Firefox I discovered that they wouldn't appear. At first I thought it was a problem with the Adblock Add-on. But when I viewed the page with IE Tab I was prompted to upgrade my WMV player. I could now view the pages in the IE rendering engine but still not Firefox. So I downloaded the Firefox WMV Plugin from Microsoft & restarted Firefox & now I can watch the videos perfectly.
