I had a typo in my description of the problem; sorry.  
It read "Expected Results:  
played the video but should have read it will not play the video.  It appears 
that these videos will only play with the "MSN Videos Player", of which i have 
never heard. 
When you click on the VIDEO link (javascript:oMvsLink('00','2aa58b60-e488-458a-
891e-5157b9d03ca3') you are presented with a new page entitled "MSN VIDEO 
REQUIREMENTS" and on this page you are instructed to 1) install Explorer 6 and 
2)Start MSN Video.

nks

When the same page www.msnbc is lauched in explorer and the video link is 
clicked, a new window is launched and the video plays in a player incorporated 
in the page.  The page is titled MSN VIDEO.
