I want to watch this film. I'm using Ubuntu 11.10 on a laptop and FireFox 8.0. The video doesn't play in the browser, and I can't use the 'copy' feature in the player (I think the built in player of firefos is used). What can I do to watch this?

You didn't say which version of Firefox; some still have issues with ASX files.
I think it might be better to use a browser that doesn't have issues with ASX files or perhaps learn a little about what the ASX file does... An ASX file is a bit like an M3U file, in that both file types serve as a sort of playlist. The real video file is referenced within the ASX file. Open a terminal.

cat 111211_hacker_film.asx

The output:

<ASX version ="3.0">
<Ref href="mms://"/>

The ASX file merely references a WMV file and MMS protocol (multi-media streaming).
So plop the real URL in your Firefox and see how it goes:
