Kinda weird. You say that npdsplay.dll comes with WMP, a MS product. Why would
it be supplied? Well, I can only guess, MS wants you to use the MP. Remember
the browser wars when Netscape had >67% market share? Then again, maybe
Mozilla supplies the plug (which I suspect). I've never had any problem using
it. But I've never tried to change the default media player on my box. If I
can see the stuff, I don't care whose I use.
Anyway, here's a link to some tests for plugins for Mozilla:
