Changes in IE/WMP/Javascript interaction?
Hello,

We have recently seem some issues with a javascript embeded Windows media
player which now results in the WMP plugin beeing disabled on some computers?

This could be a WMP issue and not a IE issue?

Anyone having similar experiences?

Sounds more like a Firefox issue to me since IE does not use a plug-in for
Windows Media Player. IE uses an ActiveX control "wmp.dll" in the Browser.
Firefox uses a Plug-in "np-mswmp.dll" in it's Browser.

So if it's actually the IE browser you're talking about then we are talking
about ActiveX control and not plug-in.

If it's the IE Browser you are talking about, what version of the IE
Browser?
What version of the Windows operating system, including service pack level?
Do you have a publicly accessible link that demonstrates the problem?

If it's the Firefox browser you are talking about, the Adblock plug-in has
been know to disable the Windows Media Player plug-in in that Browser.

Good luck,

Donald Anadell

Hello and thank you for your reply. It's indeed in IE and you can see it herE:

Just wait for the commercial and a WMP should appear. A computer that has
the problem is using:

WMP: 11.1.57.21.5230
IE: 7.0.5730.12
OS: Win XP SP3
No WMP is displayed and a "warning" symbol in the status bar since the wmp
was disabled.

The problem is stemming from the fact that the site is using an old Windows
Media Player 6.4 Class ID
CLSID:22D6F312-B0F6=11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95 that is being generated by the
"createPlayer.js" file.

Idealy the script should be updated to use the Windows Media Player 7(and
later) Class ID.

When someone visiting the link you posted for the first time using IE7 or
IE8, they should be confronted with an Information bar at the top of the
Browser stating:

"This website wants to run the following add-on: 'Windows Media Player
Extension' from 'Microsoft Corporation'"

Rightclicking on that Information bar will offer the options of running the
ActiveX control on that site only or All web sites.

Once the user accepts the running of the Activex control on that site they
should not be prompted again.

Good luck,

Donald Anadell
