You probably need to install the ActiveX plugin.
Go to Multimedia, Watch NASA TV.
You may get a prompt to install the plugin.

I can't get the live TV to run on FF, IE8 or IE8-64bit. It uses Windows Media Player and I have the add-ons for all 3 browsers and no joy.

Here is what I just realized the Windows media player firefox plugin was already installed in programs and features but the plug in was not present in FF, however a quick re-installation of the Windows media player firefox plugin fixed the problem.

For me NASA TV works in both IE 9 RC and FF beta 11.

Got it fixed. I right clicked the video screen and under Error Details it said I had no download protocol. Went to options and under Network I selected HTTP and all is fine. None of them were selected at first. I did it in FF and it fixed IE and IE-64 also.

Glad to hear, your previous post also made me check all my settings and set to desired preference along with plugin solution I posted about earlier.

Have you tried clicking on the Play button? They all play OK for me with IE9 RC 64-bit.

The video is Flash. Right click the video and check settings and see if Hardware Acceleration is checked. Some people have had to turn off hardware acceleration.
