The video in question is an .mp4 file.  Firefox v17.0.1 supports
playing it back (or at least, I'm watching it right now) and I don't
have any video playback plugins installed or running.

The DownloadHelper Firefox add-on is merrily downloading the video to
a file on my hard drive at this time at the same time
(ue8827m7_rs04jin1_h264_298K.mp4, thus sayeth the uscourts.gov
webserver), where it can be saved for posterity and played back in
Microsoft's media player, VLC, or what have you.
