Summary: media player 9 does not start → xbox.com - media player 9 does not start
Version: 1.4 Branch → unspecified
NS 7.1 supports ActiveX WMP via object although Mozilla does not. NS 7.1 will
play the video but wont display or search the "Find a movie" panel.

It will be hard to get MS to fork code between NS 7.1 and Mozilla. 

Chofmann/Brendan: what is the story on supporting ActiveX WMP in Mozilla?
