Embedding WMV for non IE/Netscape browsers

    I'm having trouble getting embedded WMV to work cross-browser.  I would like browsers such as Firefox, Opera, Safari etc to run embedded WMV without requiring users to install special plugins.  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Try this script:

    The problem is, you need a suitable plug-in which is supplied by the content creator. A while ago I was talking to an Adobe rep complaining about Apple not writing a PDF-plugin for Safari. He lowered his voice and told me, it's Adobes job to deliver it. Adobe still hasn't done anything, luckily other developers have.
    I somehow doubt you'll get a plugin from MS for those browsers. Does VLC (videolan.org) have an interface as well?
