Windows Media Player detection in Mozilla/Netscape

Windows Media Player in Mozilla/Netscape
Mozilla and Netscape 7.1 has the ability to load the Microsoft Windows Media Player as an ActiveX control, and thus developers can now build multimedia experiences that script the Windows Media Player in Netscape 7.1, just as they do in Internet Explorer. Mozilla and Netscape 7.1 will work with both the Windows Media Player 6.4 ActiveX control as well as versions 7 through 9. This article explains how to embed the Windows Media Player ActiveX control in web pages to support Mozilla Netscape 7.1, how to control the Windows Media Player ActiveX control using JavaScript and provides working examples. This article deals uniquely with Mozilla and Netscape 7.1 running on the Windows operating system.

presumably this means that Mozilla and Netscape users can also be vulnerable to the remote exploit in ActiveX where a malicious MIDI file can run programs on your system... cool... ;)
