User-Agent: Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8 When playing videos now instead of loading Windows Media Player 6.4, it does now look like it loads WMP9. But now I only get a black area where the video is supposed to be and I only hear the audo of the video. Sometimes the first time through - like the TechRepublic ad it shows the first time, then goes black and doesn't display the video part again. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Load ZDNet (Or I am sure any other video accessible) 2. Try watching a video 3. Actual Results: When playing videos now instead of loading Windows Media Player 6.4, it does now look like it loads WMP9. But now I only get a black area where the video is supposed to be and I only hear the audo of the video. Expected Results: Video being played.
The bug was reproduced on embed WMP9 when I accessed to http://zdnet.com.com/1601-2-5191660.html?tag=zdfd.eye.video.5191660 using Firefox0.8+ (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; ja-JP; rv:1.8a) Gecko/20040416 Firefox/0.8.0+). The phenomena in general become more reproducible when some spaces exist between the video image and the frame of the embed WMP9, and also after the video image was covered once by the other window. For example, 1. Access to http://www.otaru.gr.jp/8-ivent/akari6/99-streaming.html to play the embed-video. 2. Cover the video image by the other window (any window such as the text editor, explorer or the other window of firefox). 3. Make active again the window of embed-video-playing firefox. The video image disappears and becomes blank in the frame of embed WMP9. Even though the image disappeared, it can be revealed again when the window of firefox is moved by dragging or when the blank image was moved by scrolling of the firefox window.
My test results are summarized as followes: 1. Firefox0.8 on Win-XP machines (the package of WMP9 for Win-XP was installed) does not reproduce the bugs of #0 and #1 described above. 2. Firefox0.8 on both Win-98SE machines of VersaPro(NEC) and Gateway reproduces those bugs, so that the bugs may not be due to the property of hardware components. 3. Without the registry addition of the Firefox for the installed WMP9, the phenomena of #0 and #1 are not observed on the Win-98SE because an embedding WMP6.4(mplayer2) shows up. 4. IE and NS7.1 on the Win-98SE do not show the phenomena of #0 and #1.
Using FireFox 0.9.3 on Windows 2K not able te reproduce the error on any of those 2 sites from comment #1.
This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01". This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code. While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug (given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more reproduction information if you have it. If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved. Thank you for your help in this matter.
