The DevEdge article (<http://devedge.netscape.c…indows-media-in-netscape/>) is much better, explains the issue and why the ActiveX route is needed.

Microsoft on purposley doesn't support scripting WMP9 in Mozilla, so at Netscape we had to come with a solution. Nothing standards compliant about this, and it only works on windows, and only if you install something.
