    mplayerplug-in used to play Windows Media files
    just fine within the browser.  now it doesn't;
    instead, firefox would only open a download
    dialogbox(where you specify how to open or save
    to disk).

    mplayer will play WMV as a file just fine.
    about:plugins shows WMV enabled.  i must have
    broken something, but don't know what.

    i have the latest CVS of mplayerplug-in and
    running firefox 1.5.

    thanks.
