After installation of the plugin (WMP 9), the icon is still there, even after rebooting. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. When opening a link to music (e.g. http://www.epdlp.com/topclasica.html), the "missing plugin" icon appears 2. When clicking on this icon, the plugin finder appears and proposes Windows Media Player 9 3. ... which happens to be already installed on my PC 4. But I am patient, so I download and install it again 5. WMP re-installs nicely and works perfectly standalone, however ... ->continue with step 1. Actual Results: Nothing happens, Mozilla tells me over and over again there is no plugin. Expected Results: Played music, as MSIE does Folks, I have downloaded the stupid WMP three times, it is working perfectly with Internet Explorer, and this may well become a reason to abandon Mozilla, sorry.
WFM Win2k, 1.5rc1
Have you tried typing about:plugins into Mozilla's location bar, to see if it thinks WMP is installed? Also, have you tried http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/ -- about:plugins references this site, which provides some tips for debugging plugin problems....

What does about:plugins say -- does it have any entry for Windows Media player? It may be necessary to completely de-install WMP (all versions) using the Windows add/remove programs utility, and then re-install. have you tried that option?
WFM in Moz 1.5rc1 Reporter: Uninstall and Install WMP9 from Microsoft's website. This version seems to work the most reliably in Mozilla. You should see the WMP 7 Embedded object. With Netscape 7.1, or Adam Lock's ActiveX plugin, you can get WMP9 controls (which are much nicer IMHO).
No reply from reporter in 5 months, marking as WFM. Please reopen if y ou can reproduce this with a new build.
