TESTCASE: https://litmus.mozilla.org/show_test.cgi?id=6347

As the above test case indicates, navigating to http://www.vdat.com/techsupport/PRNwindowstest.asp displays a Windows Media Plugin video test.  The test case indicates the video should appear cropped on Trunk builds.  Seeing this on an RC build seems really bad.

I see this on Windows XP, Vista, and 7.

It seems not cropped but IE7 displays it a bit larger.

Adding [FFT3.5] in whiteboard.  Came across this issue during RC1 testing

This is a problem of the website itself. The given size for the embed element is smaller as the one given for the object element. That's why IE shows it larger. WE should find another page which uses embedded WMV videos.

The following page has a better example but we should try to get a good example in our Litmus testcase storage so we don't have to rely on external content.

That test crops the "Playlist" section below the video, but the video and player seem ok.  This test case should be flagged as broken for now until we can find a reliable test case.

Anthony, how does this testcase look like? It's fine on XP for me.

Here is a screenshot of the test case running on Mac.
Checked in testcase: http://hg.mozilla.org/webtools/litmus/rev/a529b2e274ee

We should update the Litmus test when the file has been pushed online.
