I've installed Flip4Mac 2.1.

If I send these headers with my .wmv file:

Content-Type: video/x-ms-wmv
Content-Disposition: inline; filename="blah.wmv"

I get a blank screen.

In Safari 2.0.4, it starts (correctly) playing the video in the browser window.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup a server to send headers as described above.
2. Request file.
3. Notice results.
Actual Results:  
Blank screen.

Expected Results:  
Playing video.
